Week 48 – Spectra

I recently discovered a stray pack of expired Impossible Silver Shade for my Spectra. I didn’t expect much and thus was pleasantly surprised.

I hear the newest Impossible films are getting pretty good. I may need to order a pack or two. The Spectra was fun to work with again.

Week 20 – Surprise!

While I was awaiting the return of my slides from the lab, I grabbed my Polaroid Spectra for a few quick shots.  It had a pack of Impossible B&W which I needed to finish.

Imagine my surprise when these popped out.  I really shouldn’t let cameras sit around with film in them for so long.

Beth got braces today, and she's very proud. Unfortunately she is afflicted with my smile and cannot show her teeth without looking sinister. 🙂

Impossibly Impossible – 010513

It's cold, and my cameras don't want to play. The Automatic 250 has decided to randomly stop firing its shutter. I did get a couple successful shots, then the tabs on the film began to rip improperly and get out of sequence.

When it works, it takes fabulous shots.


Backup this weekend was my trusty Spectra loaded with Impossible PZ Silver Shade. I normally love this film, but today I combined an old pack with the cold weather and had poor results. This is the best of 3 good shots from the pack.
