This is a photo taken in backstreets of Tallinn Estonia with a Holga camera. Holgas are plastic cameras that were originally meant as toy cameras. The single element plastic lens has a characteristic vignetting and distortion. The effect can be used to the photographer's advantage and the Holga has a cult following.
