I climbed five looong flights of old, creaky stairs...
And found myself in instant lomo heaven!
I was amazed to see so many old cameras, once believed to be obsolete, in various stages of rebirth.
I spotted this beauty pointed out the window. I am not sure, but I suspect this may be for shooting 8x10 Polaroid film, a new, expensive release from the Impossible Project:
Naturally, I decided to peer out the windows to see the five-story view:
I found a beautiful example of my Spectra Camera, too! Of course, I paid $2.50 for mine, mint in the box, at an antique shop. Spoiler: I just shot some expired Spectra Image film last weekend, so watch this blog for the glorious, low-res results!
I was excited to see the new Polaroid films available to bring my thrift-store cameras to life, although the prices were a bit shocking.
It was really something to see a beautiful, bright space dedicated to reviving the lost art of Polaroid photography. Was it ever really an art, or is that just wishful thinking? At any rate, it inspired me to explore the possibilities of instant photography. Who knows what could happen?
Stay tuned for more instant beauty, courtesy of my awesome budget camera finds!
