PHOTO FRIDAY: Holga Photos At Eagle Landing Park By Joy Fisher
This week’s Photo Friday is a set of pics taken by BTB Reader Joy Fisher, who used a plastic 35mm Holga camera to take photos at Burien’s Eagle Landing Park.
Here’s how Joy describes her set:
It was my 4-year old’s birthday and a beautiful May day, so the extended family decided to take a walk down that 1,000 stairs 🙂 to the beach there at Eagle’s Landing.
I used a plastic 35mm Holga “bent corners” camera that is well known in the lomography world (www.lomography.com if you want more info on what that is exactly). I think my film’s ISO was 800 speed that day.
Clara, my 4-year old had a blast pushing on the geoducks and watching them squirt. The tide was out a bit and lots of seaweed was on the beach.
I took the film to Walgreens and had them put the images onto CD for me. I actually had the one of my daughter squatting with her back to the camera holding the shells blown up into a 16×20 that I dry mounted and set up on the mantle. Love that picture of her!
Here’s Joy’s slideshow:
Joy calls herself a “Georgia Peach,” and says that she met her husband in Florida in 1998 at a training session for work, and eventually moved out here to be with him. She’s been here a decade now. Her hubby grew up in the Seahurst neighborhood of Burien and his parents are still in their same house, which is a 90-year old farmhouse. After they married they bought their first home in Burien to be closer to his family before starting their own.
According to microsites.lomography.com, the Holga camera is described as:
A chunky camera made almost entirely of plastic has been put on this Earth to save us … The 60’s trend of handy sized half-frame photography is back!
