Santa Cruz

As I mentioned in a previous entry, I enjoy using vintage film cameras. These photos were taken recently using my Leica M2 with a Canon Serenar 100mm f/4 lens. I find this to be an excellent lens and the combination is quick and quiet. A couple of these photos were were cropped when I scanned and printed the negatives.

these images are great! just one question...on HolgaMods, the top one of these is shown as a shot with an Olympus E1 and holga lens, is it a mistake? [I am thinking of getting a holga lens for my e1]

I can't find an e-mail address for you.

I have removed the Bar Glass photo from here because I believe it was taken with a Digital Holga and not a Leica, but I can't be certain. I was photographing with 4 different cameras that day and I need to go back into my files to verify.

The Digital Holga body cap and lens is a remarkable device and I will post some samples soon.

The bar glass photo is not typical of the Digital Holga because it is much sharper than what is normally produced with the Holga lens, but it was taken with strong specular light coming through the glasses, and I used a camera case to steady the camera.

The digital Holga is available through
