One of my most treasured possession's - my Polaroid 600. This carried me through some good times throughout my uni life, snapping away on nights out and trips away with the 'ol uni gang. It traveled with me to Paris, Belgium and Amsterdam. People must have thought I was a right weirdo for wanting to carry this humongous object with me, but I LOVED IT. The amount of money I spent on 600 film, I have lost count. To me, it was totally worth it, capturing every amazing memory and moment, with no time for regret.
I will have to come to terms that this Polaroid camera has had its days, and it's time to move on. I have always had a keen interest in photography, whether that's taking the photo's or admiring other peoples work. I am no way a photographer and I don't think anyone thinks I am, but I definitely appreciate it. I don't have a fancy SLR all I have is a Canon PowerShot (which you can see in the background) - as well as this I take a lot of photo's on my iPhone. I also own a fish eye camera which I treated to myself when visiting the Pompidou Centre in Paris with uni and a Diana+ from Urban Outfitters - which takes incredible images but for the life of me I can't seem to work out how to use it. The amount of You Tube video's I have watched I can't seem to get my head round it.
To replace the Polaroid shaped hole in my heart? I am saving for an Instax. I am desperately wanting one of these in mint, I have yet to look at them properly besides online but if I could take Polaroids again, my life would be one more step to being complete.
