Just a couple of neat Polaroid shots I'm proud of and would like to share. Again, it's somewhat difficult to be able to gauge exactly (or sometimes even closely) how a photo will turn out, so when it's developed and peeled away from the chemicals and it's awesome, it's not just worth squealing about -- which happens -- but also fun to share!
I took this one on an excursion with Jordan around to some parks in the Montclair area of Oakland. [This spot was previously occupied with mixed-up information about a certain wealthy section of Oakland that "broke off" from Oakland and became their "own city" while still being surrounded by Oakland. Apparently I mixed up Montclair with Piedmont. Montclair, I apologize sincerely. I really do think you're quite pretty.]
I passed this on a wall on the Oakland/Emeryville border... apparently it's the name of a vegan restaurant right around the corner which I've never been to or heard of, but it was so metallic and pretty and in just an awkward area (see also: not a Shangri-La, but I guess neighborhoods are what you and your neighbors make them). The photo doesn't quite catch the shininess of the silver paint, but it looked so awesome that I had to make a trip solely to this wall on my day off when I had my Polaroid 250 with me, just to get a shot. It's a little cut off at the bottom but I'm not complaining. I say it gives it personality!
What are some neat little gems from around your neighborhood?
