Looks like something Tonka would sell. Don't remember the location of the SB Sand and Gravel. SW side somewhere?

That's a pretty sharp shot for a Holga; nice one. I have never tried them.

The Holga had very special effect - but it made the shovel really stand out.

@Michael Bird - It's just east of the airport at the intersection of Bendix and Lincolnway. The company started out as SB Sand and Gravel but changed to Kuert Concrete before our time.

@John and RunE - Thanks for the comments. I think the late afternoon sun helped with the contrast here, and I was far enough away that putting the Holga on the landscape (infinity) focus setting worked out well.

Great lines, and it all looks good.
