2010/365/77 That Old Semi Instant Gratification

My grandmother owned this Polaroid and she gave it to me something like 20+ years ago. I tried a few packs of film when I was clerking it at a Ritz photo store in Baltimore, but since then, its been a shelf piece.

Maybe I will surf some eBay to try and find some film.

There was something semi magical in those days of having to process photos at a store and wait 2 weeks to get them — to this camera where you could see the results… a few minutes after taking the photo.

Ahh, that peel and rip surprise! The photos were… well rarely that good in color.
