Photographic journey #1: The Holga

It was back in July or August '06 that I first got re-interested in photography when I purchased a Holga 120 CFN through a shop that sells lomographic gear imported by Superheadz in Japan. All these stores have a corner with all this cool lomo stuff and I just felt like spending some money. Back in Uni when I was studying Visual Arts, I did take some photography class doing B&W with an old SLR but at that time, I was more interested in digital photography and photo manipulation so didn't really get into it. So, I have my Holga and some 120 film and away I went.

Here's some example shots while experimenting with this medium format, plastic toy camera.
