Darn that B setting

For my lunch break at work, I went off on a leisurely stroll to The Embarcadero here in San Francisco on this rare, sunny, warm-ish day. It's a good 4 city block walk one way. I took several shots off my new Holga 135 BC, then realized when I got back to work that the setting was at B. Darn it. I have read more than once on a blog somewhere to make sure the setting is on N; even recommended to tape it down... but I thought--I have a new camera, that does not apply to me! Not!!

Well, I just have to keep my fingers crossed until I get the roll of film processed. Who knows? With the unpredictability of the Holga, I might just get fantastic bay shots!

My New Holga 135 BC

I just could not resist, could not help myself. It was like Amazon made me do it. Amazon made me order my second Holga. It's Amazon's fault, after all. To make matters worse, because I just could not wait for the "Free Shipping" being offered by Amazon, I got suckered into signing up for Amazon Prime Shipping. While this shipment still falls into my 30-day trial period, I have come to accept it. I must have a start to an addiction to lomography!

I waited until all my chores were done before I opened up my Amazon box. You know--the one with the smiley mouth. That was me as soon as I came home and saw the box. I just knew it had my next toycam in it. I had a smiley mouth essentially all night tonight.

I absolutely love the box this camera came in. It seems all modern. I love the little Holga manual that came with it, too. The camera strap falls on the left side. Did a lefty make this version? Nevertheless, I'm excited to try it out as soon as I can. Time to load up my 35 mm film.

I'm most excited that processing can happen at my local Walgreens and that I'd be saving some money while still succumbing to my "addiction."

I have yet to decide if I will cancel my Amazon Prime shipping or not. What would an addict do?
