digital=dead

Corine Sainte Ofle is so lovely. Even though she had to pack and jet away to France, she still came by work to hang out with Rob and I for a while. She took this Polaroid of me next to the drawing Nikki did of me in the bathroom at the J-Lo. It got me thinking of the land camera that I have been meaning to use. I also have a joy cam and a square shooter that I can't find film for.

I read that Polaroid is phasing out their film and so I bought a twin pack from Filco. Rob and I shot three pictures that all came out very dark. We finally realized that it needed a battery to calculate the exposure, although it was odd that we were still allowed to shoot pictures. So, we are now in the process of tracking down a 3 volt alkaline battery. Wish us luck!

I also want to get some of the 600 series film and a Polaroid one-step.

Corine Saint Ofle kicks ass

I feel so far away from the action.
Please give ol' Robbo a "hola" for me.

I think action is nice, but you're right, dead people are nicer
