sometimes, life takes you by surprise. the other day i found some expired b/w polaroid film at the back of my kitchen drawer. i have no recollection whatsoever putting it there. a little later it turned out that a friend had a polaroid camera that works with that particular film format and she kindly lent it to me.
the film shows a large white stain on each print (maybe storage related) and the colours are really pale (probably because the films expired in 2002). but i am quite hooked. it may be the ephemeral quality of the prints. or maybe the chain of events that led up to them.
