Yes, it is true, they are Holga images, with a sticking shutter blade  
no less.
I was there on official business, so to say. I didn't want to look  
too professional, photo wise.
As it was, the DWP ran us through the whole Owens Valley watershed.  
The shot of the bubbling brook, with the measuring stick, is actually  
the head waters of the California Aqueduct.
I did shot with a digital SLR also, but those are negligible, at best.
