Polaroid days


What is it about us humans that in the world of cutting edge technology it is in the things of the past we always revert back to. I spent my whole afternoon sipping hot coffee going through all 311 Polaroids taken by Parker Fitzgerald . Matching a quote to the amazing scenes he captures 365 days of his life in 2010 with his Polaroid camera.

Warm tones, hushed shadows and ghostly flairs creating a layer unique to this brand of photography . With the magic of Photoshop, this style could of course be replicated with a photo taken by a digital camera.

But there is just something about this old school photography :point, shoot, print: no room for touch ups or retakes, that truly captures the magic of the moment.


All photos taken from Parker's 365 Polaroid Quotes flicker series. Check it out *Here*
