"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



I am currently anxiously awaiting my first film from the Holga I got for my birthday to be developed. I'm ready to see how the exposure worked with the film and how the pictures turned out! Most of them were taken when Kayla and I went on a walk past our apartments and to be safe (since it was my first time using film), I stuck to mainly nature pictures. Plus the film is black and white so I didn't really have to focus on the colors. I'M SO READY TO GET IT BACK! One day when I was feeling especially artsy, I took some pictures of the railroad tracks by the apartment with my Holga; I also took some with my digital camera.

I don't know why, but I really like this picture. I think it's because the sun in the corner.

I also like this picture because of the angle. I change the tint on this picture to make the colors more prominent and I really like the outcome!


  1. Woah, I can't believe that's the railroad by us! The bottom one is my favorite...it's so pretty! I love the lighting!

  2. WOAH!! such great photos!! i love it!
    i can't wait to see your holga pictures!!! i'm sure they will turn out great!

  3. I love the tracks in the last photo! So interesting and crisp. I can't wait for you to get your holga photos back!! Will you promise to post?? I miss the days where we drop off film and wait for it to get developed ;) It was always so fun, now I snap a million photos on my digital without even thinking ;)

  4. of course ill post the pictures!! (only if they're decent though :) )
