Armed with my old Ultra 600 Polaroid camera and piles of expiring instant film, I set out to capture memories, people, and anything else that my camera and I happen across.

POTDs: sky jump
I got my friend Jenni and little sister out on the trampoline again. Jenni brought along two stuffed animals (don't ask) to be her jumping buddies. Unfortunately, a tree and part of my neighbor's house snuck into Jenni's picture, but my sister's is nothing but sky.
I'm not a "professional" artist by any means, just someone who loves the novelty and tangible loveliness of instant film. I acquired my (very basic) camera from eBay over 3 years ago. In 2008, instant film officially became an endangered species when Polaroid announced it would discontinue the product. I have a store of film left, all set to expire by the end of summer. My mission is to photograph everything worth photographing. And everything that's not.
