Ever since I moved back home to Puerto Rico, I rarely get to see my nephew Dorian (who lives in New York), but when I do see him, I’m constantly taking pictures of him.
Taking pictures of my nephew is a lot of fun, not only because he’s so cute but also because it can be quite challenging. Dorian loves to run around, so taking pictures of him is not an easy task. Recently, I discovered a trick to get him to calm down long enough for me to take some pictures: hand over my Holga. He loves winding the film and all the clicking sounds it makes. I think we may have a future lomographer on our hands.
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.

In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states. Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>
