Vintage Tuesday: Childhood Polaroids

What’s more fun that really old childhood polaroids? I can’t think of much but then again I really love looking through photos of anyone for that matter (seriously come over to my house with your old photos – I will spend so much time looking through them). So when my father sent me an usb-drive of childhood photos I was thrilled. I wanted to share the Polaroid shots because I’ve never owned a Polaroid camera until years after they stopped making film so it delights me a lot to see any.
If you like the classic style of Polaroid film you may enjoy these random few.

I think we can all agree I look very drunk in both of these photos. Sure I am probably like between the ages of 1-2 years old but that’s the face of a drunk baby.  It’s Christmas time at my grandma’s house and I love that my brothers and me have matching pjs for the occasion.

More Christmas polaroids. It appears that Christmas is the rare time when it calls for instant photography. Btw, it’s always easy to spot me even though I look like a boy in all these just from the blond hair alone.

The last two of the polaroids I am sharing, sadly my family wasn’t really into them.  Even though we aren’t young and cute (and my dad’s ex-girlfriend is in them) I had to include these cos what the HELL is happening in these photos? I have no idea so make up your own story.

I do also have another post of my small personal collection of polaroids here, if you’d like to see more.

Autumn Polaroids

polaroid colorpack018 (1024x815)Today’s Vintage Tuesday is Polaroid shots taken in November from a walk to Parc La Fontaine and in our back balcony. I love the first shot of the man-made lake, it’s so calm and the smearing of the ink on the side make it almost looks like a water color. I haven’t shot any film with my Colorpack in almost a month now, I’ve been trying to get my other land camera polaroid to work instead so I’ve been holding onto my film. I am actually going to do a How To for my land camera because I need to convert it from a speciality battery to AAs. However ever place I ask about buying a converter to install I just get blank faces but I haven’t resorted to buying it online yet so it’ll take some time to track it down locally. I did watch a few videos last week about making double exposures with Polaroid film. I am very curious to test it out so maybe I’ll load my Colorpack up again soon and see if I can. It’s freezing here so not the best time of the year for taking instant photos. Let me know if you’ve tried taking double exposures with Polaroid cameras and if you had any luck!

Prince Edward Island in Polaroids

Polaroid003 (1024x807)

My Polaroid Colorpack is turning into my go-to camera now a days, it is just so gratifying when you get the distance accurately and the shot comes out perfect and crisp. The colors it comes up with are really wonderful too. Even the shots that don’t quiet turn out and a little fuzzy and out of focus still make me smile. I am really excited to convert my other land camera soon so I can try it out and compare. It’s so nice having an instant camera I am finding, I actually ran out of all my film on this trip and cannot wait to get some more. Last moments of Prince Edward Island from swimming in the ocean with Victor to checking out Charlottetown, finding a lighthouse and hanging out at the campsite. Enjoy.
