Here are the photos I took for 'roid week. I would've loved to have taken and uploaded more, but I ran out of film. It was a lot of fun, though, and a good reminder that you can't always be so focused on the outcome of art because it's often unpredictable, and wonderfully so.
As a way to make the project more meaningful to me, I chose to take photos in places that are personally significant to me and Peter for one reason or another, rather than just take artfully composed shots of pretty flowers or random streets, though it might look like that to others. Polaroids naturally have a nostalgic look to them with their faded colors and blurred edges, so I decided to play up that fact with snapshots that have sentimental value to me. So, while these might not be my best photographic works to date, they still make me smile when I look at them taped to my studio wall.
I'd love to continue this personal project even though 'roid week is over. If anyone comes across a relatively inexpensive source of 600 film (either expired Polaroid film or Impossible Project film) I'd be ever so grateful if you'd be willing to share the link. xo, Mary
