Polaroid Challenge 2015 /1


It might be hard to tell but this photo was meant to be Lynsey, Jess and I about to fly down a home made slip and slide on Australia Day.  Can you please use your imaginations because it was my favourite Australia Day yet and took me days to recover from the awesome-ness :P
 
I had one shot left in my polaroid camera (for gosh knows how long) and had planned it perfectly to be my shot for January :) This poor unexposed piece of film waiting to be set free into the World and when it did, well to be honest the click went and no film appeared.  I opened my camera to find the guy above, waiting for me.  At the time I naively believed he just needed a few more seconds to expose but unfortunately that's as far as he went :P

I will redeem myself and buy some more film because I really want to play along with Instax Challenge 2015 as started by The Cat you and Us bloggers!  I am totally cheating because I don't have an Instax but I do randomly have three polaroid cameras that need to see the light of day!

If you want to play along yourself, all the details are here,  I know I'm posting this super late to join in from January but I won't tell anyone if you start in Feb :)

Lol, that's quite a lot of imagination to be had ;) hahahaha, I like that this picture is perfect to start the challenge because it really shows what happens when dealing with this awesome but super unpredictable cameras. I'm happy that you're joining! We also need a reverse pictures with you & the Polaroids (formal request! :P)

    1. I have 4 polaroid cameras and have failed with two already - yikes! I think fresh film will definitely help :) Oh a reverse shot, can definitely do that! Thanks for making a fun challenge - I think the cost of film puts me off using instant cameras but when you think, hey it's only 12 shots a year, it's totally do-able!
