My handsome boy

My sweet Napoleon has been very cuddly this winter and there is something about this weather that makes you want to curl up on the lounge with your cat (and camera) and watch the world go by. This was taken with some of my last lots of 600 film from 2009.

The Impossible

I distinctly remember my reaction the day I heard Polaroid film was ending production - grief. I didn't know what to do for a few days and was online reading as much as possible to confirm that it wasn't some kind of cruel hoax floating around. About a week later, I turned to peel apart film and was smitten with all of it's variety, gorgeous colour shifts and found a new way to foster my addiction (and was also on a steep learning curve as well!). I bought one pack of the new Impossible film when it came out - a box of PX100 FF and it was experimental at best...I just stopped using integral for awhile. I recently purchased a pack of PX680 Color Shade and was really pleased with the results. Now I'm looking forward to trying some more PX films in both colour and black and white. I'm incredibly thankful that all of the Impossible team have been so dedicated and passionate about developing this amazing film that so many of us thought was lost...

Colorpack 3

Haven't posted for awhile but I do have some new Impossible shots to put up soon. I recently took out my dinky Polaroid Colorpack 3 camera to see if it was still ok. It does still work after making sure the batteries were new and twiddling with the (broken) dials a bit. This cheap ebay find is pretty much all plastic and has a scratched up foggy lens but I've managed to get some reasonable shots out of it. Here is one I took at the lake a few weeks back.
