impossible project color film for sx-70-type cameras

more on why i don’t have the urge to blog: my favorite polaroid camera was destroyed in early may, and the packs of impossible project film i brought with me to germany were defective. only 2 photos of 18+ i took on my trip turned out. (strangely, they all look like the polaroids i took on the same trip in may 2012, when the film was just starting to show promise.) this is not one of them: it just so happens that the building was white and the lettering was brown. i’m so discouraged with the film and my broken camera that i haven’t taken a polaroid since my last day in germany (may 29).

farewell friend, for now

Monday, May 12th, 2014

sigh...
i was in southern minnesota last week for work, and as the caravan prepared to make the trek back to minneapolis, for some crazy reason we were all hugging, all of us who have met each other no more than 3 times but work in different states, and i had my sturdy sx-70 in my left hand, and as a coworker from chicago reached out to hug me, she accidentally knocked my camera out of my hand (i was about to document albert lea with instant film). i’ve been carrying this camera with me everywhere, everyday, for 3+ years. it bounced back after a bottle of oj leaked in my bag in amsterdam in 2011. it didn’t bounce back after a bottle of water leaked in my bag in new york last year (i need to stop putting bottles of liquid in my bag), but i was able to send it out to be repaired and it came back as good as new. but this might be the end — the number of pieces leads me to think that a fix would be too spendy. so farewell friend, for now, but i will save you and your pieces. maybe we’ll connect again someday.
