Testing a Polaroid 180 Land Camera

Friday afternoon I received a phone call from a friend, Michael. He was calling from a camera shop.

"Deb, there's a Polaroid 180 Land Camera you should check out. It's a sweet camera: manual focus; f4.5; takes 66 series Polaroid film (still around)... I'll put it on hold for you!"

Well, I went over there the next day and took it home for a test drive. This is one image that actually turned out. The big clump of shadow is me.

This scan doesn't do it justice, but I just love the colors in this image. I also love how the plants are growing out of me 🙂 hee.

The smallest aperture on this Polaroid 180 Land Camera is f90. Amazing.

I've found another joy in my life. Thanks Michael!
