Bye Bye Polaroid

It's been a sad day today. I realised that Polaroid is no more. An institution in photography, not just for it's convenience and fun; but also creating a whole new genre in photography with its unique format, and somewhat etherial picture quality.

"The final batches of Polaroid film pass their expiry date on September 30 2009. When these supplies either spoil or run out, the world will lose something special."

This passing is being documented by My Last Polaroid, a poignant website dedicated to showcasing your last ever photo taken on Polaroid film. I've still got a few photos left to take, but you can be sure my last one will be special, and I'll post it up there.
