Toronto Polaroids

slides162My Toronto trip was too short, I already miss it. I never seem to be there long enough to get tired of it. I brought with me 3 packs of Fujifilm instant color film to take shots with my Polaroid Colorpack III and managed to use them all despite being there for only 3 days. I’ve been feeling lately that I really need to branch out and start spending more time with my other non-Polaroid cameras. I have been posting almost non-stop Polaroid content for Vintage Tuesday for the last 3 months, I even bought a new Polaroid camera last month that I am just dying to use (a Polaroid Super Shooter Plus). I think my wallet will thank me if I ease up on the instant photography. It’s just so fun though and instant photography is so tricky so experimenting is a must. I’ve even been thinking about getting a newer instant camera from the Fujifilm Instax Mini series but the one I want that allows for the most manual functions is just shy of $200 and I don’t really have that type of money to invest in another camera where the film is pricey. Regardless though I need to start spending more time with my other cameras. I do have a few shots taken using the viewfinder of the Kodak Duaflex coming up in 2 week and then it will temporarily back to Polaroid as I will be reviewing Flashcubes for Polaroid cameras at the end of March but I promise more diversity in the spring! I’m taking a lot of photos with 620 film cameras but I need some time to develop it at home so hopefully I get to my mountain of film to develop in March. For now some polaroids taken during my trip to Toronto…

Watching the World Pass

self portrait (11)Watching the world pass makes me feel so at peace. I feel that being such a nomad as a kid as made me forever uneasy when I’m in one place for too long. Travelling and watch the landscape just slip by just eases my mind and makes my soul feel fulfilled. I wish I could travel all the time like my brother, it’s one of the things I should do more of. The decision to never learn how to drive was a mistake on my end, although I feel like if I had a car I would just drive around for hours at night when I couldn’t sleep so maybe it’s  a good thing I don’t have that ability. I really enjoyed the 5 hour train ride from Montreal to Toronto two weeks ago, I could be on a train forever.  I was able to take so many photos out of the dirty window for the last few hours of our trip. I think the people behind me thought I was wired as I was snapping away with my Polaroid and Nikon camera. The self portrait double exposures really capture me trying to be a part of the landscape I being whisked through.
