Pink Polaroid Camera
Hello friends! How was your weekend? Did you do all that you planned? I didn't get through half of what I planned to but it was a perfect weekend regardless.
I'm loving Polaroid photos all over again these days. I remember the excitement as a child when after a Polaroid photo was taken everyone would crowd around and watch the image develop. Do you have similar memories? Have you held onto your old Polaroid camera?
I never did own my own camera but my dad had a few of them which he used for work. I wonder if he still has them someplace. I've recently bought a pink Polaroid camera (I know, pink!) and I can't wait to have some fun with it again. If only the film wasn't so expensive.
If you are in Sydney and you happen to spot someone holding a crazy pink Polaroid camera, trying desperately to get everyone into position to take that perfect shot so as not to waste the film - then that's probably me. Come and say hi and cheeeeese!
PS: Have you heard of The Impossible Project? When Polaroid closed production they purchased their equipment with a mission to reproduce the film production process and bring back instant film photography by 2010. They are on track to achieving that goal which is great news for Polaroid lovers!
