Looking for a little Holga magic

My very kind friend Mark (see bitterpill) sent me a Holga last week. Here's the Wikopedia definition for Holga: "The Holga camera is a medium format toy camera. First produced in Hong Kong in 1982, its name may be a corruption of the Cantonese phrase 'ho gwong'—'very bright'." Images taken with the Holga tend to be unpredictable and often (hopefully!) better for it. I've just loaded it up and taped it up (they can be prone to light leaks), so stay tuned to see if I get any magic on the first outing with it.

If you're interested, this guy has a good site about using Holgas, with some cool images he's caught with
