I'm not sure how soon the end really is, but I for one, and I'm sure so many of you, will be madly missing the Polaroid. NPR has even done a couple of stories about the demise of the legend that was once Polaroid, and one of the artists interviewed, in her thick, distinctly New York accent, described the Polaroid like "creamy butta". A Polaroid print is like none other. A great party toy for grown-ups, they brought out the goofy best in all of us, and the random mundane became works of great art. In tribute to the beauty of instant gratification that will soon be lost, here's a glimpse of some of my Polaroid flickr favs.
