A few weeks back, while browsing the isles of the local Salvation Army, I was lucky enough to find a Polaroid Colorpack II Land Camera. I knew how to test to see if it worked and also noticed that the battery compartment was free of battery acidic corrosion, so I knew I was REALLY lucky. I had ordered some Fujifilm FP-3000b Pro film on eBay, however that order took place in the midst of the Postal strike, so what was supposed to be a one week delivery ended up being more like 3 and for someone who really wanted to shoot some polaroids, it felt like a lifetime. Well, this morning the parcel finally arrived and my first initial thought was ‘Self-Portrait’ — nothing fancy, but more in the spirit of true polaroid — point, shoot and wait about 120 seconds.
