First Instant

The weather’s been quite pleasant in San Carlos or the last few weeks, which has made going out for walks a nice way to introduce novelty into an otherwise Groundhog Day-like existence. I’m sure you can relate. Today, I decided to bring my trusty Polaroid NPC-195 pack film camera and some new One Instant film along with me.

Although this scan doesn’t properly do it justice — and aside from a minor fit issue with the camera itself and a slightly uneven pull, I have to say I’m pleased with the results. The slight weirdness of the color and that unpredictable edging adds real character to what otherwise may be a bit of a humdrum photo.
