Holga...

10 Jun 2012











Sorry more beach photos! This time in the rain using my new Holga toy lens. I think I need to play a bit more - maybe try using in some brighter weather if we get any! Its good fun for a change though, especially for the price.

We decided to just wrap up and get out this morning, despite this miserable weather. The kids still loved it - a good excuse to use their brollies. The heating went on when we got back though, it was blimmin' freezing!

  1. Well done for getting out despite the rain! Love that cheeky smile. We've had our heating on too, it seems wrong but it's been so cold! Back to school tomorrow, ho hum. xx

    1. It was actually ok once we were out, it was more the thought of it I think. I know it does seem wrong in June! xx

  9. Hello Caroline, I have just popped in to say hello, Wow rainy days for you, and puddle splashing is so much fun! I love the seaside and these pictures are beautiful... I have nearly completed doing up and old fibro beah shack and get o spend most weekends there with my little grandson in tow working on the project. Each afternoon we walk down to the beach and have a splash around, we stop and have a swing and then amble home chatting o all the locals on the way. I love to collect retro and vintage and love styling children's rooms. I do hpe you pop on over and say hi! I am following you now so I can se more of your lovely seaside pictures.
