I don’t know what it is about Polaroids, but they always remind me of summer, family vacations, and going to the Jersey shore.  I like everything about them.  I like that they were instant, in a time when nothing was instant.  I like the shape of the image as it whirled out of the camera, and I especially like that there was a perfect place to add words to go with the image.  I was playing with recreating that feeling in Photoshop with digital images when my husband’s Uncle gave me a Polaroid ProCam he discovered at a yard sale!   I researched it, and found that there is a company that actually makes film for these cameras.  You can find them at https://www.the-impossible-project.com.  They are passionate people!  If you love film, the history of photography, or just interesting photography in general, check them out.  For now, this is just a fun play toy for me that reminds me how magical photography is.  I’m not sure how I’m going to use it yet….but I do have a family vacation to the Jersey shore coming up!  Do you have a favorite Polaroid image from your past?  Snap a photo of it and tell me about it in the comments below.  I would love to connect with you!
