Love your melancholic ballad, of otherworldly conversations, change and metamorphosis, light and dark, loss and miracles, all told in that golden glow, love tinting all. Strangely touching. Lovely. Sad. Hopeful.
Have got a birthday coming up and wishing your polaroid camera. Can you recommend yours?

Your polas are amazing. Is that a leaf in the top teapot?

Kristi and Seth, thank you!

Marjojo, I always love your descriptions of work, how you see and understand the unspoken, exactly, exactly... thank you as always for your thoughtful observations.
Is your birthday February or March?
Water or Fishes? My birthday is soon as well, I am wishing for a Bearded Lady party and have everyone sit for portraits.
I can happily recommend the Polaroid SX-70 Alpha(I believe the only difference in Alpha is that you can use it with a tripod). The only film made specifically for the sx-70 is the SX-70 Blend film which is more expensive and must be ordered online which is a drag when you have the itch to take pics. However, there are a variety of ways to get around it. My solution is to buy one pack of the SX-70 Blend film, use it and then when the pack is done reuse the filter on a pack of 600 film. The 600 film also has four little plastic nubs on the outside of the film pack that you either have to remove (I used a little coping saw) or bypass by sliding a piece of paper into the camera, slide in the film pack over it and then pull out the paper. It's really easy, I've reused the same filter about ten times so far and it seems to be holding up just fine. I'll send or post pictures of the process if you'd like.

karin, yes! it's a magnolia leaf
