Hanging Swings, & Mystery Houses..

Here are several squinty-eyed photographs fresh from my Holga! Apparently, I still haven’t learnt my lesson on winding film, and they are still rather wonky! The last photograph is my absolute favourite! It is my favourite ever house in Christchurch, but sadly about to be pulled down. I crept onto the property and snapped away with my camera, so I won’t forget what it looks like! I have a long-running joke with Barnaby that if I won the lottery I would buy it – now I suppose I’ll have to rebuild instead!

  2. my favourite has to be the first one–love the double exposure {is that the right technical term? Not sure and now I just look stupid}

  3. Love these shots. I also have a Holga camera and I/m hoping to God I inserted the film in correctly. I would be so sad if I didn’t because I’ve been taking some really good shots. Or at least, I’d like to think so…

  7. Last year they finally tore down my favourite house to make space for some ugly flats.. At least you caught some sweet shots in time :-)

  8. These are so brill, I love the way the look, the imperfections add to their perfection I think! I love the first one, and the last one is so eerie!

  9. Love these, I think the wonkiness gives them something romantic! Too bad about the house, I hope you win the lottery before they tear it down! I always said I was going to buy my childhood home back after we moved out, but unfortunately that;s been torn down as well..
