Holga Days: Seventeenth January

So I left the frame indicator on this one just so you know it is an actual frame off of the roll. The tricky thing with any camera, not just Holga, is that for the most part it has a fixed aperture and shutter speed for any individual shot. The human eye on the other hand reacts dynamically allowing you to take in a greater range of light (some say the equivalent of 24 f-stops. To keep from getting too lecture-y, think of the human eye as being able to distinguish shadows within shadows and still see the texture of the surface underneath them. Yeah, that may not make too much sense, but in the end the human eye is more sensitive than your camera) and sometimes I forget that.
