Picture of the Week - Prague
I took this on a toy camera called a Holga. Its cheap plastic lens softens the image and distorts the edges. It uses film (wonderful) and is prone to light leaks, hence the slight magenta discolouration at the edges. I love this unpredictability that can bring an extra dimension to a photo. You don’t know quite what you’ve caught until the film is developed. This is the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn in Prague and the treatment perfectly suits the muted colours of this scene.
