I’m officially a lomography fan! I won my wonderful Holga 120N months ago, and until today it has sat on my bookshelf – so it could be regularly admired of course! Today I finally decided to use it. We walked to the closest river to take some photographs. I wore a completely vintage outfit, right down to the shoes! Though my film will probably consist mostly of duck and flower photographs, I am incredibly eager to see the results! I’m taking it slowly though, and I even have half a roll left – talk about willpower!

  1. Your outfit is adorable, and welcome to the life of lomography! I have a Diana F+ AMAZING! I love film! In the day of DSLR my preferred way to shoot is with my film cameras!

  11. Honestly Jo, all these picture are truly beautiful and I can’t even imagine how amazing the Holga ones will turn out! Look forward to see them, the ducks are so darling :) I’ve been playing with my Lomo mini last summer in London, rediscovering film photography was so much fun that after that I even got myself a proper slr camera, I’m actually going to collect my developed prints today!
    By the way, I’m more and more in love with your beehive, I sport mine often but it never looks that pretty! :)
    A big hug!

  13. Can’t wait to see your results! I’ve only taken one roll with my Holga because I keep forgetting to get more film, but they came out gorgeously, so I’m looking forward to giving it another go.

  14. LOVE your tunic! I haven’t shot with a “real” camera since the photography class I took in high school. I still have my camera, though. My dad bought it in the 70s. It’s a Canon Rebel and I always liked shooting with it, but I don’t remember how everything works!

  17. okay, just went through some of your older blog posts and your pictures are BEAUTIFUL. you take the pictures i dream of taking, and you spend time doing things that i would do all day if there was no school. these especially remind me of ‘the wind in the willows’ by kenneth grahame <3
