A Bittersweet Love Letter


Oh, Polaroid.  We've had so many good times.  Even though I have several working cameras of your kind, I feel like you're a distant memory.  Why?  The Impossible Project film just breaks my heart.  The kinks aren't worked out, and I find myself reaching for my instant Fuji.  It creates color like you once did.


The memories we share are magical, though.  You captured my childhood and reappeared as I was discovering the world as a young adult.  Together, we experienced one of the craziest blizzards, met giants, and saw treats bigger than we'd ever imagined.  So, this charm is how I'll immortalize you.

Love,
Mandy
