So Sweet and Simple

You may have been wondering to yourself why my posting has been lame the past few weeks. I'll let you in on a little secret - I have a fun and exciting trip to NYC coming up! What does this have to do with my lack of blog posting? Everything. Every time I sit down to write a post, my mind cannot think of anything unrelated to this trip. My thoughts are hyper-focused on the details. One thing you may not know about me is that I tend to over-think major events and can't really think about much else until they pass. The anticipation gives me a HUGE adrenaline rush and major ADD. I could never really sleep the night before the first day of school every year because I would get so excited. Take that as a point of reference to imagine how excited a getaway to NYC is making me.

One of the details of my trip that I've been hyper-focusing on is my photography. This trip is a photography retreat of sorts, so I have been thinking about what cameras I'll take and what film/accessories I need to gather in preparation. The last few Polaroid cameras that I've acquired are both in the running to make the trip with me. One is the Colorpack II that takes color and b&w film, and the other is the Big Swinger 3000 which only takes b&w. Since I'd already taken pictures of color with the Colorpack II, I got a box of b&w film to give the Big Swinger 3000 the chance to shine. The outcome was most excellent. I love this film.
