Polaroid SX-70 with expired 600 film - Frederick, MD - March 2011
I’ve been going through phases with instant photography. Sometimes I can’t will myself to shoot at all, and other times my polaroid cameras are seemingly glued to my hands.
I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately, and was convinced that I’d be sitting this year’s ‘Roid Week out. But some concerned tweets and a surprise delivery of film from my instant photography hero nudged me to check out the Flickr pool, and once I did, I couldn’t help getting a little glimmer of my mojo back.
Here are a few photos I made this week. And I’m planning to bring some cameras to a penny farthing race this weekend. So, with any luck, there will be more images to come.
That’s my photo. Here’s the original that I created with my Golden Half camera. (It’s my intent to display it as the diptych, but obviously 192 asinine teenage Tumblr bloggers must know better, right?)

I made this photo with my Polaroid Pro Cam and expired Spectra Image film. It’s currently on exhibit at Unique Optique in downtown Frederick. Glad you like it.

Why, you ask? Because film is the division that’s making money and has potential for growth. Let’s hope they don’t repeat the mistakes that the Polaroid corporation made in the early 2000s.
