World Toy Camera Day happens once a year and it’s always a good excuse to take out my holga. This year it fell on the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend which Boris and I celebrated with friends and family on Bowen Island.

I love this spot which is just off the Kilarney Lake trail heading towards the meadow. There is a short bridge that crosses the river and it’s a wonderful spot on a sunny day to see the surrounding trees and sky above reflected in the stillness of the water.

This was the first time in a year I’ve taken photos with my holga. It felt really good to be shooting film again.

I’m down to my last pack of expired polaroid. I have three shots left and I really want to make ‘em count. Wish me luck in finding three fabulous things to photograph and then it’s bye bye polaroid film.

Red leaves on tenth

Japanese Maple leaves turn the most vivid red of any tree I’ve seen. They are a favorite site when autumn rolls around and their intense colour seems bright even on the rainiest fall days. These were both taken along my street while I walked to catch the bus to work one morning.
