captured on my 'holga' camera

today i found some long lost photo negatives tucked away in an old shoebox which was stuffed full of odds 'n ends & forgotten about in the back of a cupboard!!

so after dragging them out, i scanned them in and did some (amatuer!) photo editing (they're shots i took of my old dog 'stella', i think i took these in about 2004/5 - so not that long ago really) ...because holga cameras produce lots of irregularites, i had to adjust the lightness, contrast & colour ...blah blah...i could go on, but it would probably bore you!

i just wanted to share them, so here they are!
...anyway i'm so happy that i found these negatives! ....i still really miss her! ...she was funny and smart!
oh well... at least i have the photos... and the memories!

oh, it's just a little bit of dust, that's all!
yeah! only about FIVE MILLION TONNES!! haha! can you believe it???

it was truly amazing... as the dust storm rolled in yesterday, there was a really eerie orange glow & it was really windy - it was a bit unsettling i thought. this is a photo out the back of my place... i'd love to see your photos, if you were lucky enough to be smothered as well!!
