i always loved Polaroid pictures and the way colors looked distorted.
i remember how excited i was when my mom let me pull the strip of my picture and an image slowly appeared. it was like magic to me. Polaroid stopped their production a while ago, and today i tried to imagine what my children would think of the pictures i made with that cam. our kids will be so used to seeing digitally altered and perfect images everywhere that they'll probably think we were crazy for ever using that thing.Polaroid pictures were always kind of "spoiled" because the contrast was off, and you always took pictures with weird colors in them. But now, i think those colors are perfect. Just because they really aren't perfect. and i'm sure my kids will try to recreate that effect with their fancy computers.
