The new Polaroid
April 17, 2017
So for Christmas I got a Fuji Instax Mini. And I LOVE it. It brings back so many memories of playing with the family's Polaroid camera. I may go a little overboard, but I just can't help myself. I started taking snapshots from birthdays, get togethers with friends, and everyday life, and putting them in a box on my coffee table. This is such a fun way to document the fun times without being glued to your phone.
I think its a hit with the family, too. When I start taking photos everyone shares stories of their old Polaroid cameras, or their opinions on if shaking the Polaroid picture helped at all with the developing process. My husband's grandfather had a Polaroid camera when he was alive and made a little book of photos of him and his cousin growing up. I never met his grandfather, but I think I get a glimpse of the kind of guy he was by how he used these instant photos. I am glad these are making a come back, even though the film is a bit expensive.
