Eye candy: Tamara Lichtenstein.

Through a complete and total accident, I happened upon Tamara Lichtenstein's haunted and haunting photography site last night.

I was a little thrilled - almost inappropriately so - to discover this quiet corner of internet magic, while the entire rest of my city was raucous and preoccupied with the Texas vs. Alabama championship game. For a sports-apathetic person like me, this felt a bit like cheating on a lover you never really cared about in the first place. (Sorry, football).

Now that I'm beginning to toe the water of photography just a bit, it seems I can't detach myself from Flickr. All I have to do is search for "Holga," and I'm sucked into an endless click stream for God knows how long.

:) do you have a 35mm holga or a 120? i have a 35mm holga and a 120mm diana and i think i prefer my diana more even though you get more shots w/ 35mm.

Mai, did you know you are the 3rd or 4th person I've talked to that owns a Diana, and loves it? Where did you get yours? I've seen some on the UO website and have thought about going for are the photos?

Chelsea, thank ya ma'am. :) I am just obsessed with her stuff. The bathtub with the girl's leg and the cat doesn't even look real.
