Rhode Island Seascapes Holga Film

I received a plastic camera for Christmas, a Holga 120N.  It's beautifully simple to use and takes a lot of the thinking and over-thinking out of photography.  It reduces the photographer to pure artist creating art:  observe, aim, capture.  Of course, because of its lack of bells and whistles, exposures might not quite be what you expected.  I'm told to expect light leaks and the "focusing" is really just guess work.  But the camera does generate some cool effects due to its prime lens and fixed focus, creating soft focus and heavy vignetting.  I have absolutely fallen in love with this low-tech wonder and plan on keeping it on my person!  Here's two shots from my first rolls of film (and I'm loving composing within a square again).  Enjoy!
