    I will do it! Lord knows I have the paper to do it. I have 36 grit all the way to 3000. I have accumulated a lot over the years being in the Auto body business. I can see where it is under magnification.

    Holga's are strange to say the least, especially this one.

    Holga Kitty. I have learned that the holga enjoys a good blast of light on the emulsion. I know a lot of these look similar but she is always in my programming computer chair when not on my lap. She literally will be on my lap when I am banging away on my Dvorak keyboard for hours, she hardly moved for 4 hours early in the AM last night, purred the whole time. She loves green olives, sardines, and porkrines (regular, non salted or spiced). Those were our breaks but I have to stop to nourish her. Additionally, I think she like the clicking sound of the server hard drives, all 8 or 12 of them, can't recall. They are all old IBM drives that have been running 24/7 for the most part for 10+ years... actually the oldest mirror is from 1998 who is my best customer). Yes, they are redundant on current storage.... for the geeks. I am going on vaction, I hope she is alright. Every time I leave, it takes longer for her to love me again, took 45 minutes last time.

    Last Sunday was WWPPD for 2017. Get any?

    The homemade body cap did it again down front of a Pentax ME Super.

    Hi.
    This pics are from 20 years old roll of PX which the last 12 months spent in my Holga in room temperature.

    Pictures taken with help of the orange Cokin filter.
    Some dust despite cleaning got onto negative, not visible so much on the print scanner I guess made this more visible. I think I didn't use the enlarger lately enough and it is dusty inside. :ambivalence:

    This is a scan from print of course from the same roll. Interesting artifact; straight vertical line,

    clearly visible on the left. Just this frame. No changes in density etc. As I move the frame just a bit after exposure to avoid accidental double exposure I guess it was caused by 10 months contact with plastic frame edge inside the camera.
    Maybe Holga plastic is still radioactive after Chernobyl ?

    Hi. Sometimes small break is good. :acne: This one costs me some expired developers and fixers and shock of how much prices jumped up. Luckily I am switching to X-ray chemistry, which is still cheap and as good as anything else. My latest picture is a proof. :allteeth:

    Last Monday because I'm too cheap to buy expensive gear, thought I would try pinhole on the sun. Knew beforehand that even with 80% shadowed that the remainder would be too bright but hoped for at least some neat pinhole sunflare.

    Homemade pinhole body cap, Pentax ME super, FP4, 1 sec.

    With this pinhole you stepped into surrealism ! Never seen sun looking like that. I guess that are irregularities in pinhole itself causing this effect.

    Wonder if a purchased laser cut pinhole would still make the flaring patterns.
