Afternoon Boredom on Polaroid 8x10

Ever have one of those days where you're bored absolutely senseless? Getting home a little early from work yesterday afternoon, a terrible spell of boredom set in. With harsh afternoon light setting in, and little motivation to go anywhere in the car, I made the best of a boring situation. Polaroid 8x10 always perks me right up! ^__^


The low contrast and long tonal scale of Polaroid 809 is something that I can only hope will be re-invented by either The Impossible Project and/or 20x24 Studios. Just ~1 full box left of this legendary stuff; and as you can see by the shifts and "waves" in development, I'd better get shooting it!
