thatching the roof

I took this with my Holga (toy, medium-format camera).

 

This is from my trip to a small village in Mozambique, where my teammates and I built homes for AIDs orphans through Habitat for Humanity.

 

We weren't able to thatch the roofs ... it's not really a job for more than one person and we would have just been clumsy and messy up there! The roof kinda needs to be waterproof! But this guy was amazing! So fast.

 

The photo itself looks better in person. I had to scan it in and the scanner is dirty and doesn't translate color properly. Maybe I should try scanning the actual film instead? This is one of my first rolls so I'm still learning!
