Us.

His pose. Not mine.

 

Feb 08: Submitted to the Save Polaroid group whose purpose is to show the faces of Polaroid users, because as Mia said, "maybe there's strength in numbers."

 

I've chosen this pic because it's not just me (or us collectively) effected by Polaroid's discontinuation, but all the little generations that'll come after us too. My son has made a few attempts at photography, but at 4 he's sort of focused on the power of language rather than visuals. Someday. Someday soon.

 

Not to be sappy, but my first camera was a Polaroid. Wouldn't it be nice if his was too?

 

P.S. Sure, this is on Fuji but the truth is, if I could set up this moment again I'd shoot it with every Polaroid capable lens I own.
