Imperfections and surprises are what drew me back into film photography and to a Holga camera specifically.
How did this happen? I had loaded the camera and either forgot to set the frame counter for “square” 6x6cm images (the camera is notoriously inaccurate) and somehow had it set for 6×4.5cm rectangular(ish) frames, but kept shooting like I was set for squares. I’m not at all disappointed with the mixup!
The panorama image formed with these 4 accidental overlapping frames are the sum of using an unpredictable Holga toy camera and experimenting with expired film – happy accidents. These overcast sunset images were snapped somewhere along Lake Michigan on a southwest Michigan beach.
