Street Photography

I made this photograph over a year ago. It was when I first began using my Holga. While I was out this past weekend in the same town I made this photograph in I noticed there were actually a few people walking around shooting with a Diana camera. If you know your stuff you know that the Diana camera came before the Holga. They are both in the same family of medium format cameras. They are also the most basic of medium format cameras.

This also an attempt at scanning film. It looks like an actual print but alas I tried again to scan some film again and this is the best I came up with. There is actually one flaw. It scanned as a 35 mm photo. Not a 120. I don't know why it happened like that. I tried several times to set it to 120 but I could not get it to work to my advantage. But you can see what I was going for when I shot this photograph. Enjoy.
