I'm in love with Polaroids!

Everything arrived on Monday (I literally jumped for joy) and I have been waiting all week to be able to start using them.

I will be dedicating 2 blog posts to the photos I get from my roll of film from my cute wide-angle lens camera. I did take a couple of snap shots with my Polaroid camera though. It is going to take me a while to get used to covering the film as soon as it pops out but I was so happy with the results of the three shots.

I absolutely love the graininess to all the images. The most wonderful thing about these shots though is nearly nothing can ruin them. No matter how many imperfections are on the photos (including the big brown bits that didn't develop) it can't ruin their beauty. They are almost a big magical. In the world of digital cameras where you can delete, remove or repair any imperfections the Polaroid pictures remind me that imperfect is still more beautiful. I can't wait to take more photos with these two fun cameras.

  1. I love the arty/distressed look of your first attempts!
    Sometimes the unforgiving mediums _are_ more enjoyable, like drawing directly in pen. Prolly because there's no "undo" option so you have to think more carefully about what you're doing.

  2. I've always wanted a polaroid camera but have never been able to afford it, or any other proper camera fir that matter. :( But I love your polraid shots! :)

  3. Ooh, I found a Polaroid camera super-cheap recently; I'm saving up for some film right now and so excited to see whether or not it works! Love your pictures!

  4. YAYAYAY! I have a camera and no film... I guess I will need to splurge some time soon!

  5. Thanks for all the comments! Polaroid’s are not cheap to run (and I have already nearly finished one cartridge of film) and this had put me off for so long getting one. But it is worth it I tell you! I took 4 more on Sunday and yesterday. I’m going to have to learn to restrain myself hehe xxxx
