i have some really exciting news that was brought to my attention by my friend, Suzanne – THANK YOU SUZANNE. if you had read my previous polaroid-pity-party post, i whined and complained and hemmed and hawed over the fact that Polaroid was over. you could never find their film again unless you didn’t mind over priced film or cheap expired film from ebay – sorry, ebay, i do love you, but not when it comes to polaroid film.
so, getting back to the point of my happy story, my friend Suzanne said she’d heard on the radio this morning that there was a little company (aka group of Polaroid enthusiasts) who wanted to bring back polaroid film. they are the Impossible Project. are you as excited as i am? hmm? and the best part is that they aren’t just bringing back film for the newer models, but (bless their hearts) they are also bringing back film for the older models, too…like a certain 1970-something SX-70 that I own.
i’m so d*mn happy that my polaroid cameras will no longer be sitting on my bookshelf like antiques, collecting dust, and reminding me of the all the pictures i can’t take. major major win.
