News Flash: Gimme Polaroid


courtesy of David Hammock


I’ve always been a fan of the Polaroid. I mean, is there anything more magical than the sort-of instant gratification of snapping an image and then waiting with baited breath as the various details of that image reveal themselves—beginning as ghost-like apparitions devoid of human detail and gradually becoming either a flattering or unflattering photo? If you ask me, the whole digital (camera) age has completely taken the suspense out of the “supermodel or not a supermodel?” verdict process that determines whether one will keep or discard a photo.
