Day 18: Old memories

This is another recent photo that I shot a couple weeks ago. It is also 120 mm film, though this one I shot with a Holga camera, which is a cheap plastic toy camera covered with electrical tape on the seams to prevent light leaks. The camera first appeared in China as a cheap mass market camera for the working class, and today, photographers often use it as fine art, and a way to just shoot for fun. The results can often be interesting and surprising, such as multiple exposures like in this image. I like how the overlap worked and the lines it created. I also chose this image because it reminds me of a childhood friend I had, and we used to go to garage sales together.
