More Holga Panos

Sorry have been a bit slack putting up posts of late… Youngest daughter is in “constant stream of talking” mode which makes it a bit hard to concentrate for longer than more than 3 seconds (she has interrupted 3 times just in this sentence).

This combined with 7 rolls of film sitting round waiting to be developed means I having been getting on with things as much as I probably should…

Anyhow here goes some more shots from the Holga Pano camera I converted 🙂 Enjoy.

More Tulips

I spent some time making timelapses at the gardens a few weeks ago… This was me filling in time while I waited 🙂

I have been hanging out at the Wellington Botanical Gardens a bit lately… The spring festival is in full swing and lets just say that its a target rich environment for all sorts of different photography…

Ghosts In The Machine

Finally got round to finishing off a roll of film I had sitting in my Lubitel 2 TLR Camera.

Lets just say it has a problem with light leakage… It did however give some interesting images with bits burned out of them…

Dead Flower

Dont you just love it when your walking along (admittedly in a cemetery) and you go “Hey, that dead looking flower is pretty cool, I just happen to have an extension tube  and a 50mm on my F5, This could be a cool image”

And it was True Story
