I LOVE POLAROID





I love Polaroid, talk to anyone who knows me and they will tell you about my 1972 pride and joy. The Polaroid land camera that came to me from a seller on eBay, all worn in, and smelling like patchouli. When I got the package in the mail, I sat there envisioning all the great moments that camera caught. I imagined it shooting family pics, in the 70's, baseball games in the 80's, and days at the beach. I continue to shoot with it, even in the pending fear that there will soon be no more instamatic film. I'm stocking up. This image was taken in the Valley of Fire state park outside Las Vegas. I couldn't of captured him better on digital.
