Hooray for Polaroids.

I promised a polaroid post. I only have one thing to show, but hey...at least it's something, right?

I just have to say, the negatives are way cool. More so than the actual photos since I spent a whole pack of film just messing around and getting used to the camera. I'm ordering a bunch more film tomorrow, and will be prepared to take a massive amount of non-crap photos.

So, here is my front door, in all its glowy, scratchy, funky negative glory:


I love how it looks old. The negatives are wet for some time after you peel the photo off, and no matter how hard you try, something gets stuck to them, you touch them, or drop them. But it makes for great marks when you scan the image. And you get a built in grungy frame. 

I have actually been doing some *gasp* SCRAP-RELATED stuff. Valentine's cards, of course. A post on those coming sometime in the future when I actually sit down and upload the photos.And finish the cards. But I will try to make it soon.
