I do love accidents. I do love this one even though it doesn’t really work because of the landscape/portrait combo. 
I love this girl more than anything, and honestly, that’s all that matters to me.

The End Of a Busy Weekend on Flickr.Nashville, Tenn.
Camera: Polaroid 360
Film: Fuji FP-3000B
Scanned from the negative
We spent hours and hours (and hours) at a swim competition. I joked about how it’s six hours of waiting for three minutes of swimming. Multiply that by two…the full weekend was actually 14 hours of waiting for a total swim time of less than 7 minutes. The upside was that it was beautiful outside, so the waiting involved sitting outside soaking in sun and 70+ degree weather. We both got slightly sunburned.
The cold returns this week. I’m not sure my heart or soul can cope.

So there is this tree near the house that is lit by a 5 million bazillion watt light. I’m convinced it will make a good shot. I’m just not certain how to capture it. 
I’m not certain why, but something about this images makes me think about “The Jeffersons,” the 70’s sitcom. This attempt was taken pre-dawn. I could barely see the building behind the tree, and yet it shows up bright as day in the image. The film was damaged as a pulled it from the camera. I ended up losing more than half of the films from this pack because the camera kept jamming. I found out that’s somewhat common with Fuji packs in Polaroid cameras :(
But this is closer to what I want for this image. Maybe I’m closer to success than I realize.

So there is this tree near the house that is lit by a 5 million bazillion watt light. I’m convinced it will make a good shot. I’m just not certain how to capture it. 
This attempt was a double. I thought the chaos of the branches coupled with a neatly folded stack of white tee shirts (order) would create a nice juxtaposition. The problem is that the chaos overwhelms the order (maybe that’s the statement since everything ends in chaos, right?). Regardless, it didn’t blow my skirt up. 
Iterative cycles…onward.

An Experiment on Flickr.Nashville, Tenn.
Ammo Can, f300, Impossible Project PX-600 angled at 45 degrees
These were part of a pinhole experiment I tried about a year ago, prepping for my Instant Year project, which is currently on hold, sadly. Both were shot at the same time using a large surplus ammunition can I turned into a pinhole camera. The film planes inside were angled 45 degrees facing inward (hope that makes sense). Results were too unpredictable, and at $6 each attempt, unsustainable (my original intent was to create a camera that shot four images at a time, but…ummm….no). This image mellowed with age and looks much better now. Maybe that has to do with walking away from it for a bit — editorial distance — but really I think it’s because that’s the nature of Impossible Project film…results change over time. It’s one of the reasons why I love the film so much.
