The beauty of imperfection

As you can see, I've changed the colour scheme for the blog (unless of course, you're reading this as an imported note on Facebook). I was getting tired of the plain jane all black look, plus the white text on black background was hard on the eyes after a bit of reading. I'm actually contemplating migrating over to a tumblr photoblog, but not sure yet. I like what others are doing with their one photo a day type tumblr posts, and I think that would better suit me than trying to verbalize all the random idiotic thoughts in my head everytime I want to post a photo.

So without any rhyme or reason as to why I'm posting this, here it is. Some building in Budapest. Taken with the Holga on Kodak E100G slide film and cross processed. I like that it's totally blurry and poorly composed, and also has multiple massive light leaks as well as the splotchy yellow bits that I was too lazy to clean off the negative before scanning. For all my talk and scheming to eventually buy a D700 (or actually, whatever Nikon replaces that body with), I actually far prefer the flawed imperfections of this 30 dollar toy camera.

Anywho, I have to plug away at pp'ing another wedding shoot I did this past Monday, and so I might drop off the face of the Earth until I've finished it.
