Save Polaroid

It makes me sad, sad, sad to know that Polaroid has decided to stop production of their film. The Polaroid experience is something that everyone knows. Whether it was the updated 70s camera my brother had that made that special sound when it shot the film out of the front of the camera, or the older Polaroid that my dad had– with it’s side slot where he pulled the photo out of, only to have to time the ‘developing’ and to delicately peel back the paper to reveal the gift inside. In an electronic-digital-instant-cyber age, there is still a place for Polaroid. There is. There has to be. There’s nothing quite like a photo with that white frame at the bottom.

I want to Save Polaroid and hope you do too!
