My New Friend, Holga

My sweet husband bought me a "baby mama" gift when I found out I was pregnant back in May--a Holga camera.  I had been wanting a camera that would take old-looking photos, and I love a black and white photo, so this is right up my alley.

Now, I am no expert in photography to say the least--only 4 pictures from my first roll of film even turned out--(the others were taken inside with not enough light and no flash, so they were totally black).  Here are the ones that did turn out--I have some work for sure, but I really love the one of Peach lying in the grass... it looks old and Peach looks so peaceful.

The kind shopkeeper at our local camera shop, The F-Stop, (after seeing my issues with the first roll of film), lent James a flash to try with the Holga for our second go-round with pictures, so hopefully the next roll of film will turn out better. 

I'm hoping to get some good photos of the dogs to frame and put in the baby's room.  Aren't black and white/old photos the best?  They just have such an artistic feel.

Happy Monday!
