POLAROIDS-I know.....it's old news.....but since I bought the vintage pink Polaroid off Etsy (can't wait until it gets here), it has become quite the issue with me. Polaroid is no longer making the instant film. They are going digital and all modern and stuff. Yay for them....but, raise your hand if you think it should be about them?! What about us? What about the few weird and nerdy people left in the world that love Polaroids? How will I go on? Hand on my head.....eyes looking upwards.......(Curtains close) heehee
I actually bought some Polaroid film at a Walgreens last year for a Polaroid I picked up for 50 Cents at a garage sale.....now I can't find it unless I get it online. You can find it on ebay but I wonder for how long? It's just kind of sad to me for several reasons. One reason I'm sad is I always wanted to try Polaroid transfers. They are so lovely. Other reasons are just that I love to have the option to play with Polaroids should the mood strike me.In my search for Polaroid film I discovered this site called Save the Polaroids. That site really got me excited about Polaroids. And, it prompted me to go through my old photos and find my Polaroid shots. I had a lot more than I thought. I took a lot of Polaroids of my daughters first birthday. (The above pic is not from her first birthday...we did not serve Corona at her first BD party-I believe it was Coors Light) Though I don't remember exactly, I must have had a Polaroid Camera in the earlier years of our marriage, because we have several Polaroid shots of that time period.
So this post is not 10 pages long-I will just post some links for you in case you are interested in Polaroids.
- Save The Polaroid
- Save Polaroid (a Flickr photo group...lots of fun Polaroid shots here)
- Poladroid: Oh this was so much fun and will be for a long time....I downloaded this software so I can make any photo appear to be a Polaroid.....but it also gives you the whole experience-like the Polaroid sound and lets you "shake" the photo to help it develop....this is a photo that I FAUX Polaroided. I must warn you though.....the people on the Flickr photo group say mean and ugly things about people who post fake Polaroid shots on their group. Just FYI!
