Holga - Happy Accidents

I took the trusty Holga (see previous here) out for a spin a few months back, as with these toy-like cameras unpredictability is common or at least it is with me. But I love a happy accident, don’t you? Anyways, Holga came with me to Bucharest and Scotland.

With light leaks, wrong frames and double exposures a go-go I think there is something quite interesting about them. Some disagree (the boy), I’m open to discussion.

Travel Diary: Transylvania, Romania
 
travel_diary_transylvainia

At the beginning of March, we took a very short but sweet trip to Transylvania, Romania. We didn't know what to expect from our first trip to the home of Dracula, but we have to admit, it excelled our expectations. 

From Berlin you can fly to Cluj, a University city complete with historical buildings and a bustling nightlife. We spent only a day here but it was enough to get a sense of the place and appreciate Romanian city life. We stopped for a coffee in a very hipster style coffee shop, Meron where we enjoyed some fancy pour-over and aero-press coffees. 

We were able to enjoy the nightlife without feeling like the oldest in the bar (it is a student town after all), favourite spot of the night was certainly Booha. Although the London Bar opposite looked to be the most popular amongst the locals. 

Most of the trip was spent in and around the town ( it was huge) of Sibiu, which with it's historical centre is a very charming town. From the clock tower in the centre you can have a 360 view of the entire town with the breathtaking Carpathian mountains in the distance. It is easy to feel that you are in a fairytale in Sibiu, he streets are narrow and the buildings have a very nice charm. It was also fairly easy to get into the countryside within an hour we were able to drive up to the cable car station of Balea Lake. Where in the winter they build an Ice Hotel where one can sleep overnight for a mere €150/night. I tried the beds, they weren't as comfy as I'd like. The snow had covered the lake and it was hard to tell where the land ended and the sky began at times.  

After eating our weight in fried romanian goodness for four days it was time to say ciao to Transylvania. Just a mini trip this time but we will be sure to go back. Soon.

Analgoue Love: Hong Kong

We've been located in London for just over a year now and we ain't going to lie, we be missing Hong Kong. The crazy weather, the friends, the streets. We came across some old shots taken from our time living in the 852 with our analogue gear the other day and we'd thought we'd share.
