Holga Handout Response

The handout didn’t really explain how to load and unload the camera, so I’m glad that Paul Brower was able to demonstrate.

I also enjoyed how Paul and Carol’s main focus is Holga photography, but much of the final art products involve sewing. It’s an interesting combination of two entirely different art forms.

Old Photos: Ancient Ruins

These were taken digitally about a year or two ago, near a park in central Maryland.

Fascinating how quickly old things can fall into ruin, and how quickly nature can take back from human civilization.

When we found what was very likely to be a Confessional Booth, we had a very good clue what the ruins used to be- some kind of Catholic Institution; a school, abbey, or church.

An otherwise good shot of the confessional, despite my mother’s head and jacket being a distraction.

Outside of the Confessional.

Inside the Confessional.

A place of worship, evidenced by the cross.

An altar, made of concrete and some rusting metal.

Most likely an empty fountain or pool, filled in and overgrown.
