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: goldfish in chinatown
A friend and I went to Chinatown today for lunch and bubble tea. We saw this new(ish) goldfish fountain and decided to photograph it before it is inevitably defaced. Bellaire (the main drag of Houston's "new" Chinatown) looks surprisingly (and uncharacteristically) nice in these shots.
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.
