R.I.P. Polaroid film

Motel Bathroom, Gallup, N.M.

I love to shoot Polaroid film. I shoot Spectra, pack film in my trusty 195, 4x5, 8x10 and (in my dreams) 20x24. Soon I will run out of film and won't be able to buy any more. Already the cost of new and used Polaroid film is skyrocketing as production ceases. R.I.P. Polaroid film.

    You know they're restarting manufacturing, right? Not Spectra, but an equivalent to the 600. Also Fuji is now selling their instant cameras and film in the U.S. I hope this brings you joy and more great images :)
