Scattered Polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar
In the long run, you said you knew that this would happen
Maximo Park

Last year in February, many of us who loved our Polaroids went into mourning when Polaroid let the world know it would cease making Polaroid film. Maybe we should have known it was the first sign of the coming apocalypse other wise know as "the recession". Well as I keep telling folks there is light at the end of the tunnel or in this case a couple of lights.

If you aren't one of the close to a million people who have downloaded the program, then let me introduce you to the "Poladroid". A program developed by an individual who mourned with the rest of us, but came up with a way to handle his grief. Go to his website and all will be answered. All I can say is, I turned the almond and apple orchard photos I took a couple of weeks ago into something a good deal more fun. And for those of us thinking of spending our tax return on the last stock piles of Polaroid film, there's even more hope: "The Impossible Project". A group of people determined to bring back integral film for vintage Polaroid cameras.

Let me know if you have as much fun with your Poladroid as I'm having with mine and support "The Impossible Project" with whatever you can.
