Forgotten But Not Gone

(Snapped on 3/17/12 - using a Holga 120)

The other day, while I was packing some stuff up to put into storage - I came across an old roll of undeveloped 120 film. I was so happy to have found it, and eager to see the photos that it would produce - that I sent it off for processing right away. Next, I dusted off my poor, neglected Holga, loaded it up with a roll of unused 120 film that I found rolling around in the trunk of my car, and then I went to Amazon.com so that I could order more film.

When the images from the forgotten roll arrived in my inbox - the picture above was included in the lot, and as soon as I saw it - I remembered that I'd also taken some Instagram pics. on the same day (nearly 6 months ago) that I snapped this single, lone shot of the vacant, stone house with my Holga...here are a few of 'em:

(All other pics. snapped on 3/17/12 - using an iPhone and Instagram filters)

I'm so thrilled that I happened upon the forgotten roll of film, because it was as if I'd been given a little gift, or something. But better than that even - it got me all stoked to start shooting with my Holga again...


  1. I really like the way you capture the textures, of the peeling paint, rough wood and rusted nails.

    1. @Steve - Why, THANK You! But I havta give most of the credit to my iPhone - which is a surprisingly awesome, little camera...as well as to the Instagram filters - because they almost magically pull out the hidden details, which makes so-so pics. - far more aesthetically pleasing...

      Thanks so much for stopping by Little Pretties!
