I made a Holga adapter for my digital camera and of course had to do a test shoot to ensure that I could use it properly. I'm not terribley good at constructing things, so I had a hard time believing the thing might actually work! I'm proud that this photograph actually happened, not so much of the picture itself.

I live in San Francisco so the only things I could find that were small enough to photograph were these tiny flowers I found in Golden Gate Park.
