polaroid tuesday: week one

Hi all. I'm back. Right after the new year, we were whisked away by my side of the family to Mexico (one day there) and some floating around in the Pacific Ocean for a couple of days (thanks mom & dad for this treat). This was all in celebration of my dad's 50th birthday (my mom and him married young and had me young). It was a grand jovial celebration of my dad's half of a century and our family.

Of course, while there I took along my new-old polaroid camera. I am so loving it! With this new year, I wanted to embark on a new little challenge/project for myself. My goal is to take at least one polaroid picture a week (those things are darn expensive) and share here every Tuesday. Let's see how this goes. I think this will be fun and challenge more picture taking skills cause really taking pictures is just a lot of fun. So here is the first (a real polaroid picture and not a poladroid) of what will hopefully be a collection of 52 polaroid pictures...
This was our home for a couple days and the sea animals were our neighbors. My girls were especially happy. I will share more pictures of the trip and our special end of the year celebration soon.

Happy First Tuesday of 2009!!!


  1. Oh wow, looks and sounds like fun. Love the polaroid idea! Look forward to many more!

  2. what a great idea! And your first pic is a good one

  3. that light is so moody. it's great!

    p.s. I got my chair at overstock.com

    unfortunately, they are sold out, but I would keep checking back. it's worth it to save so much money.

  4. So lovely!

    Which Polaroid camera do you have? I just bought one on ebay but I think it was too "new"... I love the tone of yours.

  5. lynne- i love it that you said too "new." when we go to the flea markets, often times ben will say, "too new." we go for the opposite of most people. we like things beat up!

    the polaroid i used was a polaroid 600 land camera. it takes a few times of pressing the button until it actually works, but it works and that is all that matters.

  6. I can't wait to see all of your photos!!!
