The Santa Monica Pier

This one was shot with a Holga, a cheap, Chinese made plastic camera with a plastic lens.  Even though it's thought of as a toy camera, it takes a medium format 120 film.  The film advance doesn't rely on a calibrated advance, but one of those old fashioned ruby windows on the camera back that shows frame numbers on the film's paper backing.  This print is actually two frames that mashed together when the film wasn't advanced quite enough to get a clean frame edge.  Printed on Ilford fiber base multi-grade paper.  Location, the Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, California.
