Sad news this week: the Holga has been discontinued. They won’t be making this iconic camera anymore. Some are happy to see its demise, but they are missing the point. The Holga is beloved because of its light leaks and vignetting. It’s not a DSLR. It’s a plastic toy camera. You can do things with a Holga that would take ages in Photoshop to reproduce. And at the end of the day, who wants to sit inside at a computer when you could be outside developing your photography skills? Not me.
These shots of buildings in downtown Calgary were taken from Central Memorial Park.
I had originally shot these for Holga Week, but never got around to developing the roll in time. These were shot in Calgary’s Central Memorial Park on a roll of expired Lomography Lady Grey B&W 400 film. The park honours all those who served for Canada in various wars. I thought I would share these since today is Remembrance Day.
