Holga, lomography attempt

Here is one of my first attempts at recreating the Lomography and Holga camera effect.

What is the Holga Camera I hear some of you ask.

The Holga is an inexpensive, medium format 120 film toy camera, made in China, known for its low-fidelity aesthetic.
The Holga's low-cost construction and simple meniscus lens often yields pictures that display vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other distortions. The camera's quality problems have obtained a cult following among some photographers, and Holga photos have won awards and competitions in art and news photography.

And what about Lomography ??

Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Characteristics such as over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure, blurring, "happy accidents," and alternative film processing are often considered part of the "Lomographic Technique.
