I Heart Polaroid

I found this great article n the New York Times that someone posted on Facebook - it's about Polaroid. If Polaroid is saved, I will be a very happy girl. I love Polaroid. I love the sound the film makes as it's coming out, I love that it reminds me of my childhood when my mother kept one in her car and would randomly pull over to take photos of houses she liked, I love the look of a Polaroid and the glossy film, I love waving it around while I wait for the image to develop right before my eyes.

I bought one a few months ago at my favorite thrift shop in Manhattan but if you don't have one yet, in the meantime you can play with Poladroid. coolness.

I've been using Poladroid-- and yes it's faux, but it's fun faux real. Sorry bout the pun; it's Monday-- well no it's Tuesday, but it feels more like Monday.

I really hope they are saved too. There is nothing like it, and vintage is amazing, I love the instant picture, the seeing it become clear. digital just cant give me that. I want to find one for cheap, but I havent found one. I have one, but I think I need to stock up on the film, because its so fun to just take randon snap shots and see them right away in you hand :)

I hope they are saved. I always loved Polaroid. I loved taking shots with one of those cameras.

how great. it's great to hear company being saved instead of going bankrupt and closing.

I love poladroid, but I feel like such a fraud!

I hope Polaroid is saved. That would really be amazing...there is nothing like that instant gratification, you know?

Thank you sooo much for your kindness on my blog yesterday...I was afraid of posting that, but I'm glad I did. :)

And when I'm in NYC I need you to take pictures of me omg you are AMAZING!
