I write better when I smoke. Don’t ask me to reduce it to a science.

HOLGAsmic!!!

Hey niki!!! Loook what I got!

OMFG! Isn’t she lovely? Meet Anya, my brand-spankin’-new Holga! 

Joblessness sure has it’s ups, doesn’t it? LOL! For the first time in quite awhile, I had the chance to really just bum around this beautiful saturday, and my wandering feet eventually led me to Rockwell. A bit more wandering around and I found myself staring at this beauty. I whipped out my rapidly thinning wallet and, after about half-a-second’s hesitation, forked over the dough to make her mine.

And now she’s mine!!!! MINE, I TELL YOU! MINE!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

*ehem*

So now, I have to relearn patience, so spoiled I’ve been by the instant gratification of digicams.

 

 

btw, Anya’s vital stats:

  • Size: 22cm (8.65in) x 17,5cm (7in) x 9,5cm (3.75in)
  • Weight: 730g (1.6lb)
  • Format: all 120 medium format film (color negative, slide, b&w)
  • Lens: Plastic 60mm, f/8
  • Focus: manual zone focus with four distance settings
  • Approximate 35mm format equivalent focal length: 38mm
  • Aperture settings: f/8, f/11
  • Shutter speeds: 1/125, “B”
  • Flash: Color gel system (yellow, red, blue, clear), powered by 2 “AA” batteries
  • Uncoupled advance & shutter release for multiple & partial exposures
  • Standard tripod thread
  • Professional lab development only
Oh, and did I mention she’s hot red?

    With a Holga, photo poetry becomes truly an art, not mere technique.

    I still think the Pangandaman’s shouldn’t have retaliated even if dela Paz threw the first punch. But is anyone really surprised at the escalation in the story-telling on both sides? BTW, I think we can dispense with the age angle nao.
  • Etiquette 29 December 2008
    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
