Tough Day with the Polaroid 104: Wasted Polaroids(3/21/2009)-I had bought some 669 film expired from 2004. I had previously used expired film (in fact I think all my pack film I’ve used has been expired – even the Fujifilm) . Below is the result of woes of getting a bad pack film. The pitch black parts is the negative part, but the […]

The Scream(3/8/2009)-This image looks better very large – i cut a copy of the face of agyness deyn from a magazine and place in the hole on the driftwood. Web size doesn’t do it justice 🙁 Fuji Instax Wide
Devil’s Left Testicle(3/8/2009)-I was at Whatipu and found a red golfball in the dunes. I happened to have a golf tee in my bag (from when I was at a Danish driving range). I set up this shot then tee’d off with Polaroid Onestep + polarising filter. Shot on 600 film. Shot during Twilight

Polaroid 104 Land Camera review(3/8/2009)-My first introduction to Peel Apart Instant was through my Polaroid 104 Land Camera. Like my Vito B, the owner was selling it on at an auction because he wasn’t sure if it worked and if film was still made for it. Here’s my review: The Good Solid Build. Components are simple (its the film […]
Red Rain(3/8/2009)-We decorated an umbrella with some ‘red slime’ we created for fun. This was shot on Fuji FP100c Film.

Catepillar Driftwood(2/6/2009)-UV ID Film, Expired. Update on 2020 Aug 16: UV ID ws probably my absolute favourite Polaroid film, especially over exposed. I just loved the hues.

Alley of Broken Jpgs(1/25/2009)-First shot on UV ID film. Update 2020-Aug-16: Location is the often fumigated by urine alley off Shortland Street. Highly advised never to take that alley way as a short cut after a Friday or Saturday night!
Pig Slide(1/25/2009)-The pig is back but now doing a bit of dune sliding at Bethells Beach! Polaroid 600 film update 2020 Aug 16. I have had people ask if this was a real pig, its actually a miniature.

Shot on fp-100c silk film. 2020 Aug 16 Update: Sadly if you search ‘my face is broken jpeg‘ these days, Google no longer shows up the proper reference. Also this type of image is no longer shown on most browsers if your image goes missing! How […]
Ragamuffin Kiwi(1/25/2009)-Found abandoned on Fort Street, near the escalators there. Shot on 600 film with polarising filter. update 2020-Aug-16. This has actually been one of my favourite polaroids I’ve taken. I saw this during my lunch break, and went home to grab my polaroid camera. Took a shot and was pretty happy with it! I returned […]
Its raining foam.(1/25/2009)-This shot was taken on Lorne Street in Auckland. After new years, someone had filled the fountiains there with detergent. Unfortunately they were cleaning up the fountain when we arrived, but i decided to take a fun shot away. Shot on UV ID film (expired)

Nessie Sighting in the Waitakeres(1/25/2009)-This was shot on FP-100c Gloss. Unfortunately – this film has a tradition of getting really mangled in my 104 cam. This is the only shot that survived out shooting 2 packs of film in this camera. Was taken at Fairy Falls, in the Waitakere Ranges of Auckland. Unfortunately, I forget the plastic dinosaur at […]
Shopping Cart of Broken Dreams(1/25/2009)-This was shot on Polaroid 125i Passport film. I was surprise of the colour saturation, it reminds me of fuji film. Shot at the Parnell Railway Station.
Mind the Gap(1/25/2009)-Shot on 779 Poloroid film (integral film) at the old Parnell Rail Station – on of the few (in fact I don’t know of any other in Auckland) abandoned places in Auckland. The ‘fairly lights’ are from the rollers when the film is expelled from the camera. The film is expired as well.
Sowas Suppe(1/25/2009)-This one is a tribute to one of my favourite artists – the ever whimiscal michael sowa. This wa shot on fp-100c at Mills Bay in New Zealand. Shot on FP-100c. The colours with Fuji fp-100c are really saturated. I really like the film. Polaroid film tends to be a bit desaturated but has more […]
Swinging in the New Year(1/25/2009)-This shot was taken on new years day, at symonds street cemetary. I wanted to get an idea how instant photography capture motion shots. This is shot on UV-ID film (I really like this film). This is pack film – you have to be a bit careful scanning it at times because the the polaroid […]
