Celebrated the birthday of one of my best friends at brunch on Saturday. Was lucky enough to capture this glance that says everything about 23.5 years of friendship.

The original Polaroid instant camera. Found this vintage beaut at a white elephant sale in Ridgefield this morning for deal: $20. These can sell for upwards of $80, but this one’s going directly into my personal camera museum.
There’s slim hope that I’ll ever produce a photograph from this box, as it takes roll type 42 film that’s very hard to find. And if I do find it, it’s likely 50 years old and well beyond expired.
However, I did some researching into this camera and found that a bunch of folks have modified this model and others similar to use modern pack film, and some have even converted them into 4×5 cameras. Since the novelty of its current condition is what interests me most, I’ll be on the lookout for its intended film.
Anyway, it’s a great find and an awesome historical addition to my collection. Keep an eye out for vintage film, my friends.
