Viva la Polaroid!

I love Polaroid.  It's a fact.  Unfortunately, not enough people feel the same way I do (or at least they don't vote that way with their wallets), which has resulted in Polaroid recently discontinuing all their instant films. Consequently, I've spent the last year or so stockpiling their instant films whenever I find it (and can afford it :).  Suffice to say, it's getting more expensive: a 20-exposure box of Type 55 used to sell for around $75, and now regularly sells for $150 on eBay.  15-exposure boxes of T809 that sold for $225 are listed for over $600.  $40 per shot - ouch!

Anyway, here's a few of my favorite polaroids from over the years.  Enjoy!
