peel apart love


I don't know why I have kept my Polaroid propack hidden away for so many years. It is a really great camera, but sometimes the peel apart film makes shooting with it a little inconvenient, and a little messy. Still, the automatic vintage charm of these photos makes it worth all the fumbling around I do. In my search for film for this camera I came across this site which was a great introduction to peel apart film. It also gives me hope that this camera will be able to live on after polaroid film is gone, since it appears that it will take the instant film from Fuji, actually a lot of people seem to like the Fuji film better, so that might just be my next test. And, if you are in the mood for more peel apart inspiration, Emilie's photostream should do the trick. Just another reason I need to go to Paris.

Great shots. Long before digital, Polaroids provided the same instant gratification. But there is something about both the "quality" of a Polaroid along with the cool built-in border that digital will never replace.

There's nothing like shaking a polaroid waiting for the image to appear, it seemed to take forever when I was a child! Lovely work x
