There will be a detailed post regarding next year’s plans appearing tomorrow. But feel free to check out my 2019 Summary and Plans for 2020 that have already posted on my Photo Diary as We sail into a Brighter, Happier and Healthier 2020!
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…….

Digital IR @ Mission Santa Barbara. I saw these four blooming Century Plants and though they would make a nice IR Study. Now that they have bloomed, they will die. But look at the image on the left (below), they already have some baby plants started. I’d estimate about 10 years old from the size. So it will be a while before they bloom. We won’t be here to see it.

Vacation Contest Submissions. There is still time if you are interested,
With all the turmoil on the Border. I’m not feeling much like waving a big flag, my usual post for American Holidays on my Photo Diary. So I’m going Dark over there and posting a reminder about Internment Here:
Sometimes the Mind is imprisoned, even though we the Body is Free….. Is Your mind Open and Free? Or imprisoned somewhere?
You can fine a lot online regarding Reflected UV and flowers. So on a visit to a Friend (who conveniently owns an orchid nursery) I took the time do do a few Experiments:
I’m still working on achieving those ‘spectacular examples….But I’m also getting the impression that most flowers DON’T display the spectacular UV Affects.
And the ‘natural’ light images for comparison. See all the results HERE.
