I was enjoying an afternoon away from the kids when I found a $5 Polaroid 600 camera. I've always wanted one so I had to buy it. There was no option. I wasn't even sure if it worked but I figured for that amount of money I couldn't afford not to.
I admit I did my fair share of Googling to figure out how to load the film, use the settings and hello?!?! where was the elusive battery? But after my film order arrived from The Impossible Project I was ready to go.
My first subject was Magnum and the film did not disappoint.
I've got a meeting coming up in May to take pics in High Park before heading over to some of the Contact exhibits. Maybe I will bring the Polaroid along. That is if I don't use up the 8 shots on the kids.

I've been having a lot of fun over at Tumblr. I'm using it as an inspiration board/brainstorming tool to help me sort out various photography, art, writing ideas. I love it!
Check me out at jmurrayszarvas.tumblr.com.
P.S. My posts are much more regular over there.

Ooohhh! The new year has been a busy one. One of my resolutions was to post more this year than last, but we all know how tired this sounds. I keep making blog promises that I can't keep. Years ago when I was doing this on a more serious basis, I posted multiple times a day. Now I'm lucky to post once a week.
So last night we celebrated my best friend's 40th Birthday party. Here's me and my girls.
