It is amazing how such a cheap plastic camera can create artsy images. I guess that is the popularity of the Holga cameras with fine art photographers. Here are two more images from the patio series.

I have a series of images created with the Holga 6X12 Pinhole camera, focusing on our patio. One edge of the patio has a small area for flowers. We have planted purple cone flowers, and they are now starting to wilt, making an interesting composition for the Holga. One of the hummingbird feeders perches above the fence attracting several regulars.
