The summer kicked off with my Holga in hand. I was prepared for shot after shot of extraordinary pictures. I got the accessories that I wanted, upto a fisheye lens for my Holga 120. Mid-summer, my son turned a year old. What a milestone. Aside from his birthday party, we went to Tahoe. Yes, lots of photo opportunities, eh? I have had in my purse, two rolls of colored 120 film. Shots of the birthday and shots of Lake Tahoe.

Unfortunately, I had set the camera to take 16 shots. I wanted to try out if taking more shots would be beneficial. In hindsight, this time would not have been the best time to have experimented on trying to maximize 16 shots out of the roll. I got the films processed and well, the lab told me they can't scan the pictures to a cd.

In short, I have processed film, no prints, no digital forms of the shots for me to enjoy. To say that I'm a tad bit disappointed is an understatement. I saw the shots through the lightbox and it was just hard to be satisfied with results I really could not see.

Now, I'm on a mission to find a lab who will scan my processed film so that I can at least see some of the pictures. In this process, I just fell in love more with my Holga 135 BC. Why didn't I know about you sooner?
