Taken with a camera I dubbed the "Holgatar." I had a Holga 120 lends and shutter (a spare part leftover from a disastrous Holgaroid conversion experiment) assembly, that I attached to the front of a cheap plastic Vivitar panoramic 35mm camera. A few unexpected effects: I had no viewfinder and so almost all these shots are off-center, what used to be the viewfinder (it is blocked on the front of the camera by the lens assembly) was leaking light into the camera (hence the blown out corners on some shots) and I managed to create a cool border for the images by being too lazy to sand down the opening I created to allow the larger lens onto this tiny camera. I did manage to luck out on focal length though; the Holga lens focuses in the same fashion that it did when it belonged to a 120 camera.
