So last week I finally got around to buying some Polaroid film! I hate how ridiculously expensive it is ($25 for eight shots!) but I'm a sucker for nostalgia. I still have some Polaroids that were taken when I was a little girl, and I liked the artsy feel they had. I decided to do a little project with the film (I bought 2 packs, so I have 16 shots) where I took pictures of my friends and family and put them in my moleskine journal. So far I've taken 5 pictures, two of which are of my little brother, because he found the concept of instant photos so fascinating.
My sister Kimmy was perplexed as to why I was so excited about low quality, sometimes out-of-focus or blurry photos. Needless to say she's also confused as to why I don't find the members of One Direction super attractive. Hint: I don't like guys that look like they're fifteen and more waxed than I am.

Anyway, I'm glad I got to use my Polaroid before I left. It probably won't be something I use often, just for special little things. I'm thinking of maybe investing in a Fujifilm instant camera, just because they're more economical. My friend Andria has one and loves it, and the film, while still a little pricey, is cheaper than buying from the Impossible project.
I'll post the rest of the pictures soon(ish)!
