A bunch more that I developed yesterday

More black and white Holga goodness. Some from a few months ago and some from a few days ago.

The four above were at the Wyoming Delaware municipal offices. The first of a series I hope to start, Town Halls of Delaware.

The town hall for Magnolia Delaware. In front of the watertower for the town.

A skylight in my work building. You've seen it before

Snow Scene

A WPC Holga image. The WPC stands for Wide Pinhole Camera. It's interesting shooting with the WPC. For this photo, I kept the pinhole open for ~10 seconds.

Textures? We don't need no stinkin' textures! More Holga Goodness from the Museum on DAFB, Delaware

I broke most of the rules of photography shooting these with my Holga out at the DAFB Air Mobility Museum.
I like the dream like quality of these. I especially like the vintage look. There's no way of telling if these were shot last weekend or 30 years ago.

CLeW Group photos

The Dover Century Club and Delaware Technical and Community College hosted the Community Leadership Workshop today as part of the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership program. Students from 8 local high schools participated. The schools included Caesar Rodney, Dover, Lake Forest, Polytech, and Smyrna High Schools, the Campus Community School, Kent Christian Academy and St. Thomas More Preparatory. A co-worker that is very involved with the Century Club asked me if I could come up and do some group photos, so, here they are.

Border Cafe ala Holga

Whenever I'm up in they're neck of the woods, I love to go to the Border Cafe, fondly known as "Eats". Tasty Mexican and Cajun food at prices that won't break the bank. Here are some vignettes, most with vignettes of their own.

More Holga Goodness

I just got these developed and scanned at PhotoworksSF.com. Their service is great. I want to compare their scans to mine and see if I should keep doing them, or have PWSF do the scans. You'll note the similar locations to some earlier shots.

I loved these geese when I saw them

Holga Wide Pinhole Camera, Self Developed

Did these this weekend too! The Holga WPC is much wider than I thought!

The second one is all about the process. Seems that the sun behind me cast my shadow into the photo, and burned some of the film protective photo paper stuff onto the negative. See those circles about 1/8th the way up, coming in from the right bottom?

Home Developed Holga Goodness

I finally did some B&W developing at home today. So far, so good! The biggest pain was using a dark bag to put the undeveloped film onto some metal spools. Once on the spools, they go into a stainless tank and chemicals are poured in and agitated for a while. It's a whole thing.
Anyways, here are some from the first roll of film!

Took this with my cell phone this morning...
