Traveling Holga in Raleigh, NC

Lizbeth the Traveling Holga recently showed up on the doorstep of family photographer Jess Rotenberg in Raleigh, North Carolina.  I love the results and how she wasn’t afraid to show off the quirks and niggles of the unpredictable Holga toy camera. When this camera is on it is ON though, just look at how rich those colors are…


From Jess~

We took Lizbeth to the Pullen Park Drum Circle on Sept 2. She met some friends of ours that we don’t see often and their wonderful kids. She also saw hula hoopers, sword fighters, jugglers, acrobats, and some yo-yo-ers.  I ran a roll of Portra 800 and was pretty pleased with the results. At one point, the back did come off mid roll but that’s the beautiful of a toy camera sometimes. In the spirit of honoring Lizbeth flaws and all, here are all 12 images!
