One scene. Four instant films.

Over the course of this year’s project, I’ve missed a handful of midnight deadlines, but otherwise, I’ve managed to post at least one picture every single day. Even on the days I missed, I posted shortly after midnight of the due date, or published two posts the following day.
In this way, I’ve been quite consistent.
As for the time of day I’ve posted? All over the map. There would be stretches of time during which I’d faithfully schedule my picture to appear at noon exactly. And then I would rebel and start posting willy-nilly, sometimes – like today – coming in just under the midnight wire.
Part of me thinks I should have been more diligent in my planning. The rest of me says, “Meh. Good enough.”
And so before it gets any later, here’s a picture of the Hudson River at dusk, taken with a Polaroid on the soon-to-be-gone Fujifilm 3000B. Oh how I will miss this film!
Edited: For the record, I did finish this post and hit the “Publish” button before midnight. It was 11:47 p.m. to be exact. I clicked the button and then put my faith into the Internet gods to follow through on my action. I switched to another window and got involved with some other Very Important Task. A few minutes later, I thought, “Let me go back to that window see how my published post looks like.” Instead, however, I got to see how my unpublished post looked like at 12:01 a.m. So I am not going to take the blame for this missed deadline! Something else interfered this time. I’m looking at you, Internet!
One rainy Sunday afternoon and a box full of old pictures turned up this shot of me as a child. I got the photography bug early.
It appears I did not, however, develop the fashion bug yet.
This picture, incidentally, was taken with the same Polaroid camera that I’ve been using lately.
I said it would happen again and it did. Self-fulfilling prophecy? Perhaps. I’m not going to quibble over semantics. I’ll just post a picture that I should have posted yesterday.
Word on the street (the internet street) is that Fuji is going to stop making its black and white peel-apart pack film for instant cameras.
Say it ain’t so, Fuji! SAY IT AIN’T SO!
