Lush

Photo by famed surfer Kassia Meador from her forthcoming book.
I'm guessing it was shot on an old Polaroid Land Camera with instant
Fuji FP-100c? Back in the good old pre-digital days, I used to get through a box a minute when I was on a roll. BP

the first digital memory cards I used, I also specifically bought only 500MB ones = ± 36 shots so I'd have to pause to 'change films' trouble is everybody got bored of waiting. Now I just use a single 4GB one for a whole shoot, even then it's not full.

nice to see a real polaroid shot - i'm already getting unreasonably angry with iphones' soon to be ubiquitous, instant-cliche, hipstomatic idiot button. 'yeah, i'm pretty good at it, thinking of becoming a pro snapper' is this dilettante decade's 'fershure, i'm like a really good dj' braggadacio boast.

and ben, i appreciate your thrifty shot discipline. sign of a real photographer.

suerte, dan (another dreadful dilettante with too much ground glass and an effects button)
