Summer Polaroids Collection: #3

Summer Polaroids Collection: #3

This photo was taken about two and a half weeks ago (the same day as the previous Polaroid photo) at the Piedmont Park in Atlanta. My friend Billy was nice enough to show my friend Corey and I his favorite photo spot in the park, and I must say, he was totally right!

What I love the most about this gem of a photo spot is that it is one of the only places within the park that gives a spectacular view of the lake, as well as a stunning view of the Atlanta skyline :) Unfortunately, the buildings in the background didn’t come out as well as I would have liked, but I still think that the faded, ghost-y effect that developed instead looks pretty cool :)

This was my first time ever at Piedmont Park, and I really hope to go again sometime soon… preferably when it isn’t so unbelievably hot and humid outside :P

Summer Polaroids Collection: #2

This photo was taken at Papi’s Cuban Restaurant in downtown Atlanta right before our delicious Cuban food was served! Since I’ve been super busy with my job and summer class, I haven’t had much of an opportunity to hang out or even see any of my friends from back home.

Thankfully, my friends Billy and Corey were free today, so we all met up for lunch and were able to catch up and relax over our tasty Cuban meals :) I am so glad we all took advantage of having the same free time in our schedules, and I am EXTRA glad I took the much needed break from writing my research paper to indulge in my favorite type of food!

I absolutely love how this photo of Billy and me turned out. My favorite part about it is the wooden Cuba cutout hanging on the wall in the background. None of us realized it was even in the photo until the picture developed all the way!

Note: If you have never had the chance (or really, the pleasure) of eating some authentic Cuban food, I highly recommend it! You won’t even know what you’ve been missing until you do!

Summer Polaroids Collection: #1

This is the first photo out of a collection of 8 summertime photos that I will be blogging about (my post about buying this instant film can be found here).

This photo was taken right before my boyfriend and I parted ways to go back to our respective hometowns for the summer. Unfortunately, this is one of my most unflattering looks ever, but I still think the picture came out kinda cute-ish :P

Sweet Summer At Last!

After weeks of slaving away and completing what seemed like endless amounts of schoolwork, I am proud to say that I’m officially done with my sophomore year of college! YAY!

To celebrate the beginning of what I hope will be the best summer yet, I went ahead and treated myself to something that will help me preserve all of the great memories I will be making.

To be honest, I didn’t even plan on purchasing one of these (especially not after the hardcore online shopping I recently did), but I simply could not help myself from taking advantage of this amazing deal I found sitting in my email inbox last week:

Between the bonus code that The Impossible Project emailed out, along with some extra money that was already sitting in my PayPal account, I managed to buy one of these babies for only $6!

That’s right. A brand-spanking-new color film cartridge! FOR ONLY SIX DOLLARS. What an amazing deal! I am so excited to use the film with my long-ignored Polaroid Sun 660 camera and to take some great photos this summer!
