I recently came across an old roll of Holga images I took in North Georgia and Watch Hill, RI. It was the first time trying the camera and I did not load or advance the roll properly which subsequently produced an interesting collage effect.
The Blue Ridge, George images were taken on a visit to see a Silverback at a one-of-a-kind gorilla haven. The sanctuary looks very much like a Jurassic Park set, with 15-foot concrete walls and electric fences. Joe was born in 1963 in Cameroon and had stints in Germany and many U.S. zoos before arriving in Georgia. Getting up close to feed a SIlverback was such a moving experience. Joe passed away in July of 2012.
The other images were taken on a business trip to Rhode Island. Our team was scouting a luxury resort for an upcoming photoshoot. The seaside hotel owned a yacht that was used for entertaining important guests. I was able to get a few quick snaps in before sunset.
