Photography is serendipitous.

Holga photography (and “toy camera” photography in general) is often described as a serendipitous art form. While this is certainly true, I don’t quite think it’s fair. All photography is serendipitous, at least for those of us inexperienced enough to suffer the inconvenience of not being able to transfer images perfectly from our mind’s eye to our chosen medium (a 35mm negative, a digital sensor, a piece of 8×10 print paper in a pinhole camera).

Pentax digital system, perhaps a remote strobe, and some headlights contributing to my lighting.

    Good thing I know we were talking about Psycho and such that day or else I’d probably hate you. Glad you picked this one and not the other one though!
