Polaroid will soon cease production of Polaroid film. According to David Friedman, the last product that polaroid should make is ‘a digital picture frame that makes sure the familiar look of a Polaroid photo lives on‘.
He even creates some very cool mock images of it both standing up and pinned to a cork board. I love that you can write on it by hand because ‘sometimes it’s nice to preserve at least a little bit of the old way of doing things‘.
I love one of the comments on the post also:
The icing on the cake would be adding in an aging filter… as the photos get older, they fade slightly and turn brownish green.
I recently discovered Sleeveface. With loads of LP record sleeves still around, one of Sleeveface’s creators, John Rostron, decided it would be fun to collate photos of people creating illusions by obscuring or augmenting parts of their bodies with record sleeves. The Sleeveface thing has since taken off. There is a website and a growing collection of flickr photos tagged sleeveface. Three of my favourites are below:

I logged on to ebay today and noticed my latest ebay feedback rating.
I recently decided to
upgrade replace my ipod (named podii) with a 160 gig one so I can carry around all my music, movies and pictures in one device. I took some photos of podii to sell on ebay. One of the photos of podii’s back looked quite cool as it mirrored the Chinese dragons from one of our walls and the lucky bamboo on our table.
My new silver 160 gig ipod is named hottie and is very nice to use and play.
