This week I wrote a profile for the photography forum on Boards.ie (it’s here if any of you would like to read it) and while putting it together rooted out some old Holga photos that I’ve never shared on the blog before. My Holga doesn’t work very well these days, but I’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with it in the past.
What I love about the Holga is the unexpected results, you never really know what you’re going to get from a roll of film. In these shots I was trying to see how it would capture the golden sunlight, blue sky and the peace of a frosty dawn, and I think it worked quite well.
This particular dawn was a cold one, icy but beautiful. The photos are all from the land behind my parent’s home in Tipperary by the River Suir, I’m lucky that their neighbours don’t mind me taking a walk on their farmland.
Thank you for all the amazing replies on my previous post! I’ve enjoyed reading what you’ve shared about your feelings for Ireland and the Irish people, it’s very touching. I hope to put together another post with some of your comments very soon.
