Classic Polaroids

I keep finding photographs around my house that I forgot I had, this is what happens when you don’t unpack everything after a move. Lol. This week I am showing some classic Polaroid shots that I’ve collected over the last few years. I have never owned a classic Polaroid camera before and until I picked up my vintage Polaroid I wasn’t really into instant photography that much. Although now I am kinda getting obsessed with it and wish they still made this classic film. However I have friends with Polaroid’s cameras and ended up getting a few over the years that I treasure…

The first two were taken by me with my friend’s Ali’s camera at a New Year’s Party at her cousin’s house. It’s her and my other friend Mark with his amazing Mohawk. That night is probably one of my best memories of my early 20’s and I kind of treasure those two shots so much.

Hahahah this was taken I think at a grocery store and it’s me! I know hard to tell, I look like a little boy. I have no idea how it’s a triple exposured but it’s one of most treasured childhood photos. I look amazing in my dinosaur sweater.

That’s all of them, I know it’s such a small collection but I think it’s pretty good for someone who’s never owned a Polaroid camera before. I really wish Polaroid still made film because the Impossible Project film just doesn’t seem to be worth it but instant film is so much fun. I am dying to pick up a Fuji instant camera, perhaps for Christmas I will treat myself.
