I got a polaroid for my birthday.
(Unfortunately, neither of the photos below were taken from the polaroid.)
But I love it. My mum wants to know why I'm going backwards in technology. Why I want a camera that has such expensive film, that if you take a bad photo, you've just wasted $2. Why don't I want to use my digital camera where I can take as many photos as I want without wasting money?
Because I love the moment the polaroid keeps.
I love that I only have one chance to capture whatever it is I want to capture.
I love that I have use it sparingly, because it means that the photos I do take have so much more significance.
I love that that photo can't be taken 10 times in a row, from slightly different angles.
I love the anticipation as you wait for the image to emerge from the whiteness.
I love the way it moulds into my hands.
I'm just pretty much in love right now. Once I've taken a few more photos, I will share them with you all
