• Polaroid Update

    I have an impulse problem.

    Remember my recent post about Polaroid nostalgia?  Weeeeeeeelllllll…

    I got my One Step Polaroid camera!!!

    For 5 bucks on craigslist I might add (gotta love a good bargain).

    I actually got the camera on Wednesday (less than 24 hours after that blog post) and have been waiting patiently impatiently for the rain to stop. It’s been VERY rainy here in Virginia the past few days.  And cold. In my world those two things just do not mix well at all! So instead, I’ve been curling up on the couch, cup of coffee in hand, admiring the awesome polaroid loveliness on flickr.

    To my delight and surprise the rain clouds actually parted for a little while this afternoon and I was finally able to load up my 600 film (for those of you keeping track I did manage to hang on to two packs) and go for an enjoyable, although brisk, walk.

    The fun part about Polaroid film is that you can never be quite sure what you’re going to get. Fortunately today I was pleasantly rewarded with these two shots.

    I love how they just go together. And, they totally did not develop as I was expecting them which is all part of the fun.

    I could just squeal with happiness right now!

    I’m not sure when you’ll see more Polaroid fun from me. I would love to go experiment more but I have to conserve the little bit of film I covet right now.

    17 exposures and counting…

    Cool I have a polaroid too, although I don't use It so much as the film is expensive. I found this cool application though…http://www.poladroid.net/index.php

    Fun! The first one looks like such a delicate piece of art. I love the simplicity and the way the colors developed. You are right, the second one looks like a companion photo to the first and ceratinly captures some brightness creeping into an utterly dreary day. BTW: You impulsive?

    […] I mentioned before that I’m impulsive? Like super […]
