HOLGA - NEW YORK part 2

More Holga photos taken on a recent trip to New York. Living in a rural area it's fun and exciting to visit metropolitan areas and sometimes daunting as I want to photograph everything. This visit was more relaxed than my usual trips as I didn't run around to film festivals and small museums....we just "hung out"...well, I did see two movies...THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO and MOTHER.


I like the pink tights and the colorful skirt.


Sun glasses anyone? Lots of street vendors were out on this warm sunny day.


I like the movement created by the double exposure of the round edges on the building in the upper right corner of this photo.


A regal looking older apartment building.


By the IFC Center. THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD is a very funny and beautifully costumed Korean movie with Song Kang-Ho who was so very good in THIRST. As I'd already seen it and it was the day before mother's day I watched MOTHER. An excellent movie whose main character is a middle-aged woman who would do anything to protect her son from a murder conviction. Maybe not the fare most mother's would like to celebrate the day but I thoroughly enjoyed myself.


Side street.


Zara the Spanish owned trendy clothing store.

I'm trying figure out what Nicholas Cage at Midnite means on that marquee?

A personal appearance?

Cool photos, sbk! I especially like the regal apartment, looks like a triple exposure. And what's going on in the left hand side of the first photo. Was that the end of the roll?

Hi Glenn,

No, not a personal appearance but a tribute to him. They're showing an array of his films between April and July 10th.

Hi duriandave,

Thanks. As you may have noticed I love taking photos with my Holga. Yes, it's the end of the roll and the gray spongy part is part of the inside of the camera. I like how funky it looks.
