#6 Polaroids

Instant and magical, R's next pursuit of 8+ months was Polaroid. We went to the Flea weekly until we came across a Landmark camera and another camera that originally had bellows and fabric that flopped over your head. This model however, was more agile for reporters. R. retrofitted it with a Polaroid back and captured the daily and seasonal change of his backyard garden, even some disposed items of the previous tenants.


It hit me when a co-worker said congrats on the new city, new job, new home, and new life. My hobby monster and I are engaged! as of February 17th, which explains the brief hiatus in postings. We're moving from NYC to my hometown, Chicago at the end of July. We're exhausted from planning but excited to move into our first place together... a luxe apartment with amazing city views of Willis Tower and occasional delicious whiffs from the chocolate factory next door.
