Becoming smitten by low-fidelity "instant" photography in a digital age is a weird thing: you buy a $4 Polaroid Spectra at a local thrift shop, and find an expired pack of film on eBay (expired film often produces odd and unpredictable color shifts, as shown here).
Then you scan the result with a $500 scanner, touch up the dust specks with Adobe Photoshop CS3, and post the result using a $3000 computer.
Hey -- no one ever said photography had to make financial sense.
Happy 'Roid Week!
