Polaroid Week 2009

May 9, 2009

This past week was ‘Roid Week 2009 on flickr, and it doesn’t have anything to do with Manny Ramirez or A-Rod.   It’s the week to celebrate by shooting with a Polaroid camera.  It’s a rather odd juxtaposition to be celebrating the birthday of Dr. Edwin Land, the inventor of instant photography as the medium he created is dying out.  At least Fuji hasn’t abandoned the instant film photographer by continuing to make and market a great replacement product.

This photograph is entitled “Retro” and was shot with a Polaroid SX-70 Alpha 1 Model 2 camera on type 600 film.
