:::my Polaroid sx-70:::


sharpie drawing on white paper of my trusty TAN SX-70 that I picked up one day in March 1987 while driving over Laurel Canyon at a garage/yard sale... I picked the camera up for $20 and a little black night stand for $15.00... needless to say... I still have the camera but the night stand
is long gone...

in the mid eighties all you needed was an sx-70/film/paper clip or toothpick if you were at a meal, and you were in business ... manipulating your images just under the surface of the Polaroid.. as if your Polaroid was a WACOM tablet and your paper clip the pen...no software
required...

**the effect was a painting/like/brush-stroke/quality given to the Polaroid...


thank you Polaroid and of course Mr. Land for all your ingenuity...!!!
