Fisheye: Weekend in the City

Okay guys, this is my very first attempt at using my new fisheye camera. 
I thought it was really fun! I like how the pictures turned out grainy and how the large buildings downtown look all bent around the lens. I'm not sure that I'll use it nearly as much as my Holga, but it's a lot of fun to try out new film and see how it turns out. 
(Side note: I have taken 2 recent rolls of film with my sweet Holga and neither one of them turned out a single picture! Needless to say trying something new was pretty refreshing.)
We stayed at a nice hotel in the city, had a fancy dinner and got all dolled up. All of the pictures that I took were mostly of the day after while we were walking around after brunch. 
 Have any of you tried using toy cameras? I really love all of the imperfections and how you never really know how the roll is going to turn out. I also like how the first or last frame always seems to get cut off...

  1. I've never used a toy camera but I adore fisheyes! I've always wanted to get one for my old camera, but now that I have a new camera I just might have to get it for this one soon!
