An Outfit, A Drink & Some Film

Click through on this link to see the photo I wanted to post. I'm not posting it because I don't want to be a bad person & nick a copyrighted photo. So it's more of my crap I'm afraid!
I just saw that outfit on The Sartorialist and liked it - lovely & bright but still smart. Less keen on the furry collar thing, but other people just don't conform well enough to what I like!
I'm brewing up a post on clothes you love to death, but decent sunlight and time are evading me. I've got two coursework deadlines next week, one of which I am yet to start. Gah.

On the plus side I've just bought Sainsbury's Light Hot Chocolate so I have something warm and indulgent to drink that doesn't require me to remember to buy milk!
So here I am looking cosy... two years ago!

52.7 How I like to live

Oh! This morning as I was walking down some steps on my way in to university I found a Polaroid picture nestled in a hole in this wall
Bokeh in your honeycomb wall

So I picked it up, and it looked like this

Mysterious... so I turned it over

Aha! Impossible CR.
A little light googling confirmed my suspicions: it was no ordinary polaroid, oh no! It was one from The Impossible Project!
Exciting stuff, it is. It sounds like some of the Impossible Project film hasn't worked brilliantly but it's a really nice project. Some ex Polaroid employees have got together & acquired a factory in the Netherlands where they're trying to invent and manufacture new types of Polaroid film.
Yes, there's still Fuji Instax, but there are a lot of Polaroid cameras about! 300,000,000 of them according to the Project's homepage. The page does strike me as a little overdramatic - it claims that they're saving analogue instant photography, neatly ignoring Instax. But oh well!


  1. Original pictures!!! Congratulations!!!
