Call this “fun with the Holga.”

Plastic cameras can offer fun and interesting results, and this is certainly one of them.  When I was in San Francisco I took a picture of the neighboring buildings beside the hotel I was staying in.  The quality of the lens is such that the buildings bow inward, which is most dramatic from the outer portion of the scene.  This actually helps draw the viewer’s eyes into the center of the frame.  The center is reasonably sharp and unlike many Holga cameras, this one does not display the light leaks that oftentimes characterize the images.

Of course, that also could be due to the duct tape that has been added to the camera. <g>
