Don't cry for me, Polaroid. Alas, we had some good times together when you, my friend and I would blow $20s on your expensive-as-hell instant film but it was always worth it. The washed out colors, the square frames, your indie ambiance...like Tim Curry said in Rocky Horror Picture Show, it was all about the "anticipation."
So, it was a trés sad day when I heard you were retiring.
God bless, the Internets for finding a digital solution to keep you around though! Check out Poladroid, a web program that stylizes your digital photos into polaroids, vintage patina included. Click-drop-boom! Click-drop-boom! My New York - San Francisco - Seattle snapshots make me feel so nostalgic now. Thanks to Poladroid, it was almost as if you never left me. Poladroid is a free download. Ch-ch-check it out.
