Beach Polaroids

Last week, I visited my family in North Carolina and we spent a few days at Carolina Beach.  I brought along my Polaroid Land Camera, which captured the blue colors very well with Fuji film.

Unfortunately, the peel apart film was messy to use on the windy beach and the prints got covered in sand. You can see where brushing the sand off lifted the emulsion in spots.  Afterward, I realized that leaving the sand on and displaying the prints in a shadow box frame would have made a fun statement about the tactile nature of film.  Next time!
