The black and white image above was taken with the first Polaroid camera I ever owned, a classic folding leather covered SX-70 Sonar. I found the camera last summer at a rural roadside yard sale while on my way to visit Mom for her birthday. Our celebration for Mom’s big day included homemade ice cream and live music at a small hometown waterside street festival. It was a fantastic way to celebrate her day.

The color image was taken on the same day as the SX-70 photo. It was taken using my 1963 100 series Polaroid Land Camera soon after I finished repairing the shutter release mechanism. Bringing this camera back to life was thrilling.

Analog, Moms, and homemade ice cream are just beyond fab.
