If you’re ever curious and patient enough to browse a thrift shop, I’m almost certain you’ll come across at least one version of a vintage Polaroid camera. I should know because I’ve done it and yet haven’t been lucky enough to find one in decent condition to justify the purchase.
I have a mild fascination with that creamy vintage results that you get from a Polaroid snapshot. I’m particularly fond of the Polaroid SX-70 which you can apparently still get on eBay. Walking the streets of New York, I came across one of the many street vendors on the sidewalk and he stuck out among the others because of what he had for sale. Even if buying wasn’t my intention, I still stopped and admired the fine craftsmanship of this piece of history.
