august fourth

I made a lunchtime trip to Blue Moon Photo last week. I couldn’t help but shoot this beauty on my way home.

  1. Dang, I REALLY need to get my hands on a Polaroid camera, hah!

    I read this as I, myself, am on my way to Blue Moon! I take the bus, though, so no uber awesome trips across the bridge for me. (sniff!)

    1. They had a bunch of Polaroid 600 for $5 each at the Goodwill off of McLoughlin about a week ago. I need to go back myself and get a “close up” one. Pro Photo is now selling the film too. Go get one! :-)

    1. It’s my second favorite. I have a crush on the Fremont too. I bought one of the Goodwill Polaroids, it allows me to adjust the focusing a bit (only two settings but still!).

  2. Love the bridge photos. I’ll be seeing it again soon in the Bridge Pedal!

    On a related matter, how long does Polaroid film last? I’ve had some in my fridge for a few years now… I bought a bunch right before they stopped making it (long before Impossible Project existed) and have been saving it for a special occasion.

  3. Of course, now that Impossible makes instant film, I guess I needn’t be so Gollum-y about holding on to it.

    1. Hi Jess! I’m not sure how long expired film lasts. Just get out there and start shooting it. Nothing is sadder than film that doesn’t work. The film packs have batteries in them that make the cameras work so the life of those might be more important. People are saying this will be the last year of Polaroid film which I assume means that the expired film is becoming less and less stable. What kind of film do you have? What cameras do you have? :-)

  4. Oh. Wait. I saw your pic on Instagram. You meant 600 cameras. Not 600 film. I was freaking out that you found 600 film for $5. That would be the best Goodwill score ever!
