Celebrating Polaroid

Kansas sky


It's one of my favorite weeks of the year--Polaroid Week!

I'm having some issues with expired film or my SX-70 (not sure which), but I managed to get this shot before things started going downhill. I hope I'll be able to work it out so I can keep playing along this week.

In the meantime, check out all the great shots in the flickr pool. There's a whole lot of Polaroid goodness--and inspiration--just waiting to be discovered.

That's a great shot, I like how the film made it feel like some old Dutch painting.

First of all I would like to congrats you for "Blog of Note" I liked most of your photographic posts. The colour tone in photographs is different but what I liked most is the perspective, angle and lighting in them.
