Gavin Thomas

Who the fuck takes Polaroids anymore? I mean… who has the money is still that cool?

So I just woke up and made myself a cup of coffee and started checking out the COMEINTOLAND Flickr pool (no we haven’t forgotten about it) and my groggy, pasty eyes immediately landed upon some Polaoird shots – okay it helped that a naked blonde was in them I suppose but still. Made my morning.

Seriously Gavin, fucking Polaroid?! I missed you SO MUCH. I’ve still got my SX-70s, Swingers, and all that snazzy shit… I even have like 4 boxes of film left… but I can’t, I just can’t bring myself to use it. No moment is special enough, especially when every dick with Instagram is a photographer these days (me included). Polaroid is just too precious.

Course you can do what Mr. Thomas is doing here and buy some Fujifilm that works in the Polaroid 360 that, if you’re lucky enough to find one with a working electronic flash are the best cameras in the world (next to the SX-70). Or you can tear your heart out and buy the not-quite Polaroid film from the Impossible Project and eat nothing but cheerios for breakfast lunch and dinner.

So I guess what I’m trying to say is, BRAVO MR. THOMAS. Keep it going.

PS. If you back this abomination I’m going to hurt you.
