roll 44_ Toy Camera Day

I took out two cameras for World Toy Camera Day on October 18th, my Holga 120 CFN and the Holga PAN. I don’t have the negatives back for the Holga PAN so those will have to wait until next week, but here are the ones from the plain old black plastic Holga 120.

Sadly my film was loose and I got major light leaks near the end of the roll. Then again, it’s World Toy Camera Day so does it matter? We have to learn from our mistakes too.

  1. I was traveling and picked up a new to me camera for World Toy Camera Day. I have no idea what will come of my adventure. Otherwise, I’ve just moved to Portland. Waves “hello!” Maybe a photo wander one weekend with all the Portland peeps? 🙂

    • Portland is a great place to be if you like film. Be sure to visit Blue Moon Camera on N. Lombard because they only deal with film cameras and can answer all your questions. What area of Portland do you live in? Too bad you just got here for the start of all the rain.

      • Thanks for the tip. I definitely have Blue Moon on my list. We’re currently in Brooklyn in an Airbnb. It’s a lovely neighborhood. We’ve fallen in love with a place about 30 minutes outside of Portland. It’s a 1935 milking barn that was converted into a house. It sits on 2 acres with fruit trees, two kinds of grapes, and three kinds of berries. We’re keeping our fingers crossed. 🙂
