Polaroid – Saved!

Oh YAY. I have a slight obsession with Polaroids lately, so I was far too excited when I read this article at the Independent yesterday. It might be a bit too much to hope for, but I’d love to see the prices go down for film. And perhaps now there is this possiblity of lots more film in the future, the prices on eBay will fall. (I’m an economics student, and whilst I understand why decreased/ended supply will obviously increase demand and therefore prices, it still REALLY annoys me to see film going for ~£15 a pack on eBay when it was only £10 new)

I’ll be taking much much more Polaroids now, hoorah!

Polaroid, Poladroid

As you probably have realised by now, I love love love Polaroids. I love the excitement of not knowing how the picture looks when you take it, I love that its never the same sort of colours and effects on the pictures, and I even love using a proper old school film camera.
What I’m not so keen on however is the expensive film, and the fact that its becoming harder and harder to find film. (It used to be so easy to find film in the high street stores, but now I’m having to resort to eBay, which I hate!)
So I was pretty pleased to find Poladroid, a simple little program which is for the Mac only at the moment, and most importantly, free. Drag and drop your pictures onto the little picture coming out of the Polaroid camera image (which is the actual program) and it will spit out a photo which will need a bit of time to develop. The pictures even lay on your desktop in a haphazard, oh-it-just-fell, kinda way.
Heres a few examples…

Alec, who actually dresses like this all the time, and was in no way mocking the same-y boys in Urban Outfitters. Oh no.

Puh- Puh- Puh- POLAROID!

I love my Polaroid camera. Love it!
I’d been wanting one since, well, since I was about 7 years old and found out what a Polaroid camera was. I managed to get one quite cheaply last year on eBay, and since then I haven’t really used it that much because film is quite expensive. However, when Polaroid announced they would no longer be producing the film, that made me for some reason want to take more pictures with the camera! I’ve been stocking up from eBay, and have been putting them up on my bedroom wall to make it a bit more interesting up there.

Here’s a few pics I’ve taken (and scanned recently) from my Polaroid

Four feet

Me and Jackie in Starbucks last weekend. Not as comfortable a pose as it looks (well, for her. I was quite cosy curled up in the huge chair!)

Jax and Andy down at the River, on the harbour side. It looks like it could be quite a nice day here, but it was raining! We still sat outside, but we were under the roof.

Here’s Charlie with the amazing picnic we had one lunch time in a park. Look at all the lovely food! Mmm.

Charlie and I at the park. Look, actual sunshine!
