After Viewing This Image, I knew what I wanted to say here….Inspired by John Sexton’s rich silver prints:
I can’t wait to print this image. Taken with my new/old Fuji GW690II, this was only the second roll through the camera. The subject, the Roosevelt Dam at Salt Creek, AZ. Oooooh that Black Water!
Yes my Image is grainy and high contrast, but I’m not trying to copy the Sexton Style, I am instead drawing a link in Personal Vision of what represents Beauty. Inspired by His Book, “Places of Power” and an appreciation of Industrial Beauty:
You can follow The Littlest Holga on Twitter (@Littlest_Holga). Probably the most successful thing I’ve ever done with on-line photography was sending a Purple Fluorescent Holga to @Givemeabiscuit (on Twitter) as part of my first EMULSIVE Secret Santa. Half serious and half a joke, Holga was at that time going out of business. So I thought it would be a good gift.
Now Littlest Holga travels the world making fun and fabulous images. Holga was my introduction to medium format during an Experimental Photography class in Monterey. I was so inspired by Holga that I chose to use it for my first 6 months of the 52 Rolls Project. So here are a few of my recent Holga Favorites…..
And Early Holgas from that Experimental Photography Class:
And an image made using the Fisheye lens gift that I received from my first Secret Santa…….

My husband suggested a different crop for Arcosanti to eliminate a disracting sky:

From our Last Snowy Day in May……..After Mother’s Day at the Waneka Lake Boat House. And I did manage to get my June Offering to the Frugal Film Project posted on Instagram….
I finally have submitted an image to the World Wide Pinhole Day site. Last year I had a great image but never uploaded it. Darn! But this year I didn’t let it pass me by:
From the Aztec Ruins, New Mexico. A misnomer of course, because this was built by the “Ancient Ones” circa 11th Century BCE. The Great Kiva was reconstructed in 1934 by Hopi and Puebloan workers. The image above was the one I submitted…..Below all of the best images. Reality So Subtle 6X6F Pinhole Camera, Kodak Portra 400 Film, @ 5 minutes exposure time:
As you read this we are on the road in search of that Perfect Pinhole Composition.
Here’s an Oldie But Goodie Favorite complete with a ‘Ghost Figure’:
Starting my New “Themes” Series. The only requirement: The shot must satisfy the expressed Theme. In this Case Archi-texture.
