Holga GTLR Take 2 – Astoria

In my last photoblog I posted the blurry results from the first roll through my Holga GTLR. I thought for my next few posts I’d share more results from that camera.

Happy to have figured out the error of my ways, I brought it with me on a weekend  trip to Astoria, Oregon.  I had a lot of fun with it, once I realized the camera wasn’t broken!

Step into the light

Fifty-four years lighting up the sky.
A quivering leap smashes a billion worlds.
Hah!
Entire body looks for nothing.
Living, I plunge into Yellow Springs.

This was taken with my Zero 45 pinhole camera using the 25mm configuration. I used Arista.edu 100.

The poem is Dogen’s death poem. I read it for the first time the other day and I love it. I wrote my own “death poem” that I will share on Monday. (I am not planning on dying anytime soon, it was just a writing exercise).
