The Mississippi Delta in Black and White: The Holga Files #2

This is the second of 4 posts from my recent trip to the Mississippi Delta. Photos were done with a Holga toy camera and medium format film.

This photo was actually done in Maryland. I love the effect that makes this angel statue look almost alive.

The Mississippi Delta in Black and White: The Holga Files

This is post one of 5 of photos I did with my Holga in the Mississippi delta with my good friend Lowry a few weeks ago. I’ll be posting digital images from the trip after I get through these. I’m pretty pleased that I found 20 photos I liked out of 60 I shot. That’s a great ratio! I had them developed and scanned at The Darkroom dot com. Wow, they’re fast with delivering the files!

Old church. The door is pink. I think this B&W is as good too.

Delaware Farm Country Sunset

The golden hour is called that because of the golden tones that are created by the sun as it passes through the atmosphere when it’s close to sunset and sunrise. The lighting is so pretty, that people like it and will pay for photos taken then over photos taken in the middle of the day (most times anyways).

Agriculture is an important industry in Delaware. I like seeing all the Amish farms and homes and folks going about their lives in defiance of modern conveniences.

I loved the gold bands sweeping across this wheat field and the colors in the sky
Amish School house at dusk
The sun briefly cast this redgold coloring on the white, simple one room school house. The colors were echoed in the sky too. Yes there are two outhouses at the left side of the shot.
