my latest polaroid aquisition. i finally won one on ebay. i was outbid at the last second several times... and i didn't want to spend a whole arm and leg. just part of one. but now i have my very own 680. shoots like a land camera but built to take 600 film. auto and manual focus, light and dark capabilities, AND it has a flash. yeah - pretty excited. it's really amazing how clear this one can shoot.
i've been thinking a lot lately about how to deal with the state of the world and the blogsphere. i mean at times it seems like making art and being creative is so trivial and non-essential. bara summed it up pretty nicely today.... and i just want to acknowedge that. [and say ditto]. today i feel like it is OK to keep this space about inspiration, and beauty, and creativity.... an outlet of sorts.
and so on that note:
i had to get this... it's a perfect size.... my new favorite everyday bag
