Here are two photos I made with my Holga (120N), and the stories behind them. Photo #1: My friend's father passed away, a man who had been instrumental in getting a very powerful Holocaust Memorial built in Palm Desert, CA, and I wanted to do something to honor him. The Memorial featured several bronze sculptures depicting real-life events. So, I went there with my Pentax 6x7, but the setting proved to be very difficult to photograph, and I came home with nothing. I returned with my 8x10 pinhole, anxious to try again -- but again, failure. As a last resort (although I shouldn't have thought about her this way) I went back a third time with Holga. At last, I got what I wanted! This photo started out as B&W, and I added the color in PhotoShop. The caption on this sculpture told how this woman clutching her children cried out to the Nazi troops, asking "Why?" They answered by shooting her. I left her hand devoid of color to signify death. Photo #2: After one of the recent California fires, I observed a large stand of burned trees in the distance while driving on the freeway. Later, I figured out how to access them from another road, but I had to hike in what appeared to be about 2 blocks. Ever hear of a desert mirage? The 2 blocks turned into 4 blocks across the hot desert, and though I drank plenty of water before leaving the car, I took no water with me (mistake) because my camera bag was filled with my Pentax 645, a couple of lenses, and the Holga. When I reached the trees, it smelled bad. And it was hot. In any case, I set to work, and in the viewfinder of the 645 the burned out trees looked really intriguing. I made a number of photos, pleased as punch. Then, anxious to get back to the car and the water, I hurriedly shot a roll in the Holga. When I got home and got everything processed and the proofs printed, I was shocked to see I had no really interesting pics from the pro camera. But Holga saved the day with this one I named Creepy Hollow. Believe me, I didn't want to go back -- it was creepy there! Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.
