Polaroids from out West - The Dainty Squid

Polaroids from out West

Monday, June 16, 2014

Well hey there! If you don't follow me on instagram you might have missed my most recent little adventure. I mentioned it briefly last week on the blog but other wise kept things running smoothly over here. Jeff and I took a liiiittle trip out West. By "little trip" I mean we flew to Denver, Colorado, rented a car and drove around six states including Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Arizona, and New Mexico. We spent two nights in a hotel, one night in a wigwam, and the other three in the car. In the six days we were on the road we racked up a whopping 3,204 miles. It was the most incredible trip of my life. I could have never imagined it would be that much fun.

I took so many photos. 18 rolls of 35mm film, quite a few packs of instant film, and a handful of digital photos. The 35mm I haven't gotten developed yet. I'm trying to compare prices a bit because that's a lot of film. There will definitely be a plethora of blog posts about this trip. I seriously can't even remember all the things we did off the top of my head, it takes looking back through my photos to help me remember because we just did SO MUCH. To start off the posts from my big trip, here are some random photos I took with my polaroid 600 and some Impossible Project color frame film.
I have photos of almost all of these things taken with my other camera as well. I'm sure there will lots more dinosaurs and kitschy roadside things on the blog shortly since the desert just seems to be full of them, it's kind of crazy!

I can't wait to share more soon!
xoxo

    1. Thanks!

      I love Impossible Project film. It's definitely very sensitive and sometimes it just completely doesn't turn out. I'm pretty happy with this pack though.

  7. I love that you keep the old film alive! Where do you get your film developed? I've been trying to find a place that will develop mine to CD. Keep up the good work!

  8. That sounds amazing! I love road trips, I fell in love with the form of travel and vacation last summer when I did one of my most real and longest road trips so far down south to Kentucky and Tennessee! I love the old kitsch tourist attractions! I can't wait to see more rolls of your film, Im sure they came out magical.

  9. I've been waiting to see photos from your trip since I heard you were going on one! This batch is awesome, I'm so excited to see the rest. Btw, I wish I could afford some Imp. Film for my Polaroid 600 because the colors are absolutely amazing (and they look pretty cool as wall decor) but it's a bit pricey when international shipping is added :(
