well, sometimes in your life amazing things happen and you just have to cherish the moment. a good friend and fellow photographer, Olaf stopped by a couple weeks ago after i bugged him about some 4×5 film holders he was going to give me. in addition to the film holders, he dropped off a shit-ton of film. and included in the lot were two boxes of Polaroid Type 55.
really? T-55? it’s kinda legendary film. and he just gave it to me. he just wants a print sometime in exchange.
i’ve already used about 8 frames of it and i’m feeling a weight that i’ve never felt in photography before. what good can come from this, what truly stunning images can i create? herein lies the challenge. and the first that i feel has some heft. enjoy.
