Over the last ten years or so I've amassed a large collection of Polaroid cameras and an even larger collection of photos taken with those cameras. Not all of the photos are good, in fact most of them are pretty bad, but who doesn't love the instant gratification that comes with shooting Polaroids? I decided to scan and post a few of them since most of them are just sitting in piles next to my couch and rarely get looked at.
This is one of my favorites. The colors are so unusual. It was one of the last photos that I took using actual Polaroid brand 600 film. It had been expired for about two years.
This is actually a fairly recent shot using Fuji 100c.
Clouds, trains, and factories; so Cleveland.
These guys were sitting at the end of an exit ramp bumming money while traveling across the country for a death metal festival. I can't remember where they said they were from, somewhere in Europe. I gave them five dollars in exchange for letting me take their photo.
A beautiful wall in Columbus, Ohio.
The view from Terminal Tower's observation deck.
Photo of Jason taken with an SX-70 while shooting graffiti a couple years ago.
A foggy day in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Another foggy day, this one shot with an SX-70 at Edgewater Park.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
Downtown Akron, Ohio.
The demolition of the Cleveland Cold Storage building to make way for the new innerbelt bridge. The view from the roof of this abandoned building was one of the best in the city.
An abandoned passenger train car in Baltimore, Maryland.
I'll post more from my collection of Polaroid photos over time.
Photos taken with several different 600 type cameras, SX-70, and Super Shooter; using Polaroid 600, Fuji 100c, Fuji 3000b, and several different Impossible Project films.
