If you have been following my blog or loyale for any length of time, you will know of my love of Polaroid camera photos. Like many of you, I am sure there was a collective scream of terror when news emerged of Polaroid’s plans to cease production of their magical film two years ago. I went to Amazon immediately and bought 10 packs of film (I wanted to buy more at the time, but sadly said film is expensive and I could only invest so much). I have savored the film quite well, yet this past weekend I just finished the final pack…there was a melancholy that my Polaroid 600 given to me by my dear friend Amee would now only be a decoration. Well, I am so happy to report that after poking around the internet, I have found my solution: The Impossible Project! Their mission is to save instant photography from extinction by inventing and manufacturing new and creative instant film materials at the former Polaroid factory in the Netherlands. I immediately ordered four boxes of PX silver shade, which are only $2 more than Polaroid film used to be. They arrived Friday and let the fun begin! I will scan some images soon and share them with you. Happy 4th!
Eco-chic peace! xoxo – Jenny
