I have an obsession. While everyone else in the world seems to be purchasing high-end Nikons, all I long for is a Polaroid with an endless stash of film. Alas, the once cheap camera is no longer so affordable; the film, no longer being made and the remaining going for around three dollars an exposure.
Well, I’m not going to pay that. I am, however asking for a Fuji Instax for Christmas. It’s a small white camera that takes credit card sized instant photos. A modern Polaroid. If I can’t have the original, I’ll settle for the Fuji. What has also helped satisfy my craving for 60’s and 70’s esque pictures is the Cross Process app on my phone and Corel Paint Shop Pro Cross Processing. I love the slightly faded, imperfectness of Cross Process. I love the color saturation. Mostly, I think I love the vintage-ness of it all. You know, it makes me feel as though that picture of me really was taken back in 1973, with a little Three Dog Night Shambala playing on the turntable.

I think my nerd is showing so I’ll wrap it up with some outfit details. I felt very “teacher” today, but still rebellious enough to wear brown open toe sandals with black tights and to be called “that style lady” by a district administrator. I’ll take being known as “that style lady.” I’ll also take a Polaroid and some film. Any takers? I mean…givers?
