At least once or twice a month, I need to take and have a picture, a real photograph, right now.
I go to the little closet next to my living room and open the door and pull out my trusty Polaroid camera, and I go take the picture.
In 60 seconds it’s in my hand, crisp and dry.
Sure, you can buy a disposable Kodak and take a picture, or take a picture with your digital camera: I do both, from time to time.
Neither puts the picture in my hand, right here and now, in 60 seconds.
At amazon you can get a Polaroid One camera for $20.99 (it lists for $40).
Film costs $8 here, for 10 pictures.
The first time you realize, “Hey, I can take a picture of it right now,” you’ll think to yourself, “Why didn’t I do this years ago?”
