Weston Park – Holga (Photography)

enchanted weston park

I was actually in my wheelchair being pushed along this gravel path by my husband when I took this hence the soft (ahem) focus. Ugh I hate gravel paths – pretty to look at, hell to traverse. I never did write and complain that they didn’t give a disabled/carer concession yet most of their ground were inaccessible. Pretty but difficult

    This is quite near where I live. I like the soft focus effect and the B&W. No, not great for wheelchairs.

    The place looks rather grand

  3. Hi Rachel. I felt like I was stepping back in time, looking at your photographs. The top one has a haunting feel about it. Nice work, dispite the gravel stone traverse.

  4. Oh my god, wonderful, they remind me of the sepia postcards of cambridge – the Holga does good work, and I am delighted to see the pictures!

  5. The Holga really is like a magical box sometimes the way it transforms the world. I do so love it.

    These remind me of photos I took as a child with my Brownie Kodak Box camera. Except these have a softer focus which all goes to get those very moody effects. So what is Holga? Hang on that rings a bell arey old Soviet Union cameras that I heard a programme about last year?
