Ben and Becca do San Fran
My dear brother Ben welcomed me to his hometown San Francisco last weekend. I gave myself a break and took only pictures with the SX-70 Polaroid camera that he had given me for my birthday. Polaroid cameras are magic to me in their ability to emphasize the fleeting nature of a moment. You shoot the picture- it grabs the moment and makes a big noise announcing it, and your record of that life-blip immediately feeds out of the end of the camera. You only get one chance. It’s always like that, with any camera. A moment can never be re-made. But these cameras seem to drive it home for me.
There are a few that we took with Ben’s point and shoot at the end.
