It's not necessary. You certainly don't need a car here, and I've never missed owning one ever. Nonetheless, there are people who cannot live with out them. They are a part of the landscape, as no street is complete without them lining the sides. Here are a few from my normal neighborhood night walks.

In a recent post, I spoke about scanning the 'duds' - those photos which came out either way too overexposed or underexposed. I showed examples of an underexposed Polaroid, and my scanning methods used to uncover the magic hidden within. Today I'll share one which was overexposed, a Type 600 version of Impossible Project's color film (a 'skins' version with animal print frames). My cameras are sx-70's, so this film will result in an overexposed image.
The original cropped, after adjusting data in the individual color channels.

On the left, my Holga with Polaroid back and homemade filter. Held together with a bunch of rubber bands and electrical tape. On the right, my Arunas cam: a cigar box pinhole with Polaroid back. Both sitting on a seawall, ocean in the background, my mini-recorder weighing down an unpeeled Polaroid in the foreground. Taken with an sx-70 camera 2 months ago.
