an evening in May





Inspired by Polaroid week, I got my 340 out of the closet tonight. And, we fumble through a pack of film. The poor neglected polaroid of the house. I don't have a manual for it, so everything is an experiment. It is so different from the sx70 I am used to, with no depth of field. Peel apart film is so messy, but there is still that same sense of wonder as any polaroid, the waiting to see what will become. There is a timer on my camera, but I make the girls count to 60 for me instead. It seems to work well.
So this is it, what you'd see if you were here right at this very minute.... Puffy clouds, my wonderful crab apple in full bloom, bikes awaiting their nightly ride, and kids playing in fresh cut grass (see if you can find the turtle and frog the girls are holding.)

The best 340 shots I have seen are here.
Have a wonderful night. xoxo- A.
