yay for giveaways!

the long awaited first giveaway!! ok, so about a year ago, i had this fab idea to start taking cool artsy photos. i bought this holga on ebay and searched for film. i got them all in the mail and was totally gung-ho about getting out and releasing my inner photog. i took one roll. in a year, i went out once to shoot pics and i never even printed them. yeah. so i want to pass this on to someone else who has maybe been thinking of getting into it but needs that extra little push that a free camera and four rolls of film will give. i love the pictures that you get from these cameras. they are so dreamy and moody. i know one of you will do some great work with this. the film is still current, it doesn't expire until 2011 which is pretty cool. sometimes this stuff is hard to find. it is color film, not black and white. and i've kept it in my fridge for the last year so it should be good to go. ok, you have til friday to enter. just leave a comment and a way to contact you (if you don't have a blog) if you are the winner. i will use the next five days to figure out how to use that random counter website thingy that everyone's been using for giveaways. so let the comments begin!

I've just found your blog through Kate's! How exciting! I love the way pictures taken by others on these cameras turns out but I've never been game enough to try it. :D Thanks for this chance! Now off to look take a peek around your blog... xx

hey, cool! I've given the Holga as a gift a couple times but have never gotten one for myself (or even used one for that matter!) but it's always something I've wanted to try out.

p.s. did you end up getting any of the CV for Target shoes? I stalked that bitch of a website until I got the print wedges in addition to the yellow ones - cause ya know...I didn't have anything better to do.

Just to be clear... I'm not commenting in hopes of winning. Because I already own one.. that the Manfriend got me for my birthday last year.. that I also don't use. Basically I'm a silly little impatient child when we break down the facts, and I didn't take the time to put it together correctly (honestly, NOTHING is idiot proof for me) thus enabling the back to fly off when I stepped outside to begin snapping away. Whole roll: gone. I've also cut myself with child safety scissors. Pretty sure My parents only decided not to put me in a bubble because I'd still manage to hurt myself, and there goes the $$ spent buying the thing.


In other words-FABULOUS giveaway, and while I'm not entering, it's given me the ambition to actually use mine. xo.

nihonfleur said...

oh wow!!! I am going through the same thing you went through about a year ago. I am currently using a freebie film camera that is actually an underwater cam! hahah so cheap and the last roll I took had a black shadow in the corner of every picture :( I have also been scouring ebay for a similar camera (I was hoping to find a Pentax only because I think the vintage silver/black combo looks cool) But the money!!
wow so amazing giveaway!!!

This would be awesome, I've been tip toeing around the idea of really diving into photography, so a free camera is perfect. Just the push I need.

By the way, just found your blog and I'm totally digging it!
