lomo vs iphone

So I'm back in the UK again for a little while and over the last couple of weeks I've been hammering away at my old holga (holgywolgy, to be precise) and used about 10 rolls of film in Brighton and Cornwall. During this time his flash packed in and he almost fell apart, the poor thing......hadn't seen so much action for almost a year before this! I'm so excited to see the results.

The photos below aren't holga, however. I've gone over to the dark side and got an iphone. these are all digitally produced hipstamatic and/or instagram produced photos. 

i've been really enjoying getting to know my new baby but to be fair, feel a little bit guilty when i go out and leave poor little old beaten-up wolgy in the corner like an unwanted elderly relative. the holgy delights will obviously take a little while to develop and scan and all the rest of it.....which is why, i suppose, these photos are so satisfying to see NOW. I'm just another shameless product of GIMME NOW society. yip.

These were taken at Trebah gardens in Mawnan Smith, Cornwall. That's right, England really is this lush.
