Summer Rain Storm in Lamar County

As I was driving home yesterday a summer storm drenched Lamar County with some much needed rain. 

The temperature felt like it dropped at least 20 degrees.  What a welcome relief from the sweltering heat.

Hoga camera with 120 color film

Holga cameras are just so much fun.  The aspect that I like so much is that you never know how your picture is going to turn out.  There are light leaks, uneven colorization, wierd saturations, and an overall unusual quality to the pictures.
I actually took these  pictures last summer after I took a Holga class from Chad Smith at Commerce.  In class we used black and white film and developed the film in the dark room.  After class I wanted to experiment with color film.  It is kind of expensive and it is just a little difficult to get it processed.
Next I think Iam going to try cross-processing the color film and see what images develop!

Whatever struck my fancy!

Yesterday I drove home from Austin to Paris on HWY 79 North.  It was such a lovely day with a bright blue sky, wispy clouds and georgeous summer lighting.  All along the way I stopped at the little towns and took pictures of whatever caught my fancy.  I have more but thought this was enough to share for the moment!
