The Death of the Holga

I think it's official. I've killed Holga or at least seriously injured her. Quite awhile ago, I dropped it by accident, the back popped off (not all that odd since it's a flimsy piece of plastic and I hadn't yet duck taped it all together), lost a roll of film, and in the process I think I did some permanent harm to the camera itself. The slightly fuzzy artistic quality the shots are supposed to have has turned into a deep fog or perhaps what you would start to see if your eyes were going bad.

Awww, but what can you expect from such a cheap toy? Here are her last ditch efforts taken on various adventures around San Francisco.

May have to put a new one on my Christmas list this year.
