    Thanks Jonathan. Well you know, I was kind of inspired by your Grand Canyon photos.

On Saturday I got to spend the afternoon photographing two of the cutest twin babies, Antonio and Rosa. I particularly love this shot of Antonio taking a moment of quiet contemplation.

    Hi Albert and kim: Desde Panamá Felicidades mis sobrinos estan hermosos. Mañana le enseño las fotos a mi abuela y a mi tía.

    These all look great!

    Kristense – It is a tricky little monster. You definitely want to make sure after your last shot to advance the film even more for awhile until the roll has completely been advanced onto one side of the camera. As you keep turning the knob to advance the film you’ll suddenly feel it become loose. Advance it a couple turns more to make sure. Then when you open the Holga, the film should be completely rolled to one side. Then it’s just a matter of jiggling the roll out. Make sure to keep the roll tight. I wrapped mine up in tinfoil to keep dust and light from it until I got to the lab.
