polaroid love : group 1/3
I've been admiring the Polaroid-love out there for a while. I tried to resist doing it myself since the film will no longer be produced. But, I was not strong enough, and, for once, I couldn't be happier about a weakness. As Tennyson said, "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
Scott borrowed a camera for me and I was originally going to take just 40 shots and then call it a day. I don't think so. These photos are like magic. Not only the way they develop before your eyes as we all know, but the romantic qualities they evoke. Mat Denney said it best in For The Love of Light - "It doesn't record reality with digital faithfulness, it's how you remember reality looking, saturated with the color and texture of memories."
These pics represent group 1 of 3 from a recent trip to our favorite beach town and I think it was a perfect place to capture on Polaroid. It's very special for us and now we have it immortalized in tangible photos unlike most of my digital work. I have a lot to learn, but it's a start.
