Have you ever wondered what makes a Polaroid photo so wonderful? There is something magical about them that you can't describe.
The other day, the the blog's talented photographer, Miss Emily Tebbetts and I split a roll of Polaroid film from Urban Outfitters. $24.50 for a pack of ten. Worth every penny.
Taking each Polaroid was exciting. With a Polaroid, you only have one chance to get it right. We literally held our breath while we watched each one develop. With only ten shots to take, we wanted to get them right. Our day started in Franklin Park, Boston.
Here was the first Polaroid of the day.
What a relief... In my opinion this turned out lovely. Notice how mysterious the shadows look in a Polaroid.
This next one is my personal favorite from the day.
So peaceful... I love how one of my bright blue flats I had kicked off managed to sneak its way into the corner of the photograph.
Some far away shots...The more I look at these next two, the more I like them. This next one has an old fashioned feel.
Although you can't tell unless you look closely, I'm standing next to a cute little chair carved out of a tree stump in this one... Random, but we thought Polaroid worthy.
We then transitioned into a more urban setting.. Harvard Square! I will blog more about our picture perfect, spontaneous day in my next blog entry when I post the digital photos taken from that day.
The flowers in Harvard Square are beautiful this time of year! The colors look amazing in the Polaroids...
It was starting to get dark...
I love how my hair is falling in front of my face in this one...It adds to the natural feel of the Polaroid.
It was getting chilly...I put on my favorite bright red jacket.
The last photo we took on the red line heading back home... With the city of Boston in the background, crossing over the Charles River.
I hope you appreciate Polaroids as much as Emily and I do... Words can't describe their magic!
Stay tuned for the digital photos Emily and I took this day! It will be fun to compare the difference.
