oh, Christmas Tree!



There she is! My little golden Christmas tree, all decked out in vintage baubles & surrounded  by many a deer. I took a bunch of polaroids of the tree tonight, trying to capture its essence just right. I did finally get The Shot, but it has been sent to The Noisy Plume's Christmas Tree Photo Contest (photos are due by December 20th, so hurry on over & submit yours!), so won't be sharing it here with you quite yet.

The instant photo taken above was not taken with a Polaroid, though! *gasp*! I scored a Fujifilm Instax camera & found some film to go with it; and the above is the first shot I took using that camera.

Gracie got in on the action whilst I was instant imaging! Here's an outtake:
note: her eyes are squeezed shut 'cause of the flash from the Instax!

p.s. here's an oops Polaroid Spectra shot I took ... but I think it's pretty, anyways. :)

Tonight was an excellent night for both A) Christmas tree love and B) instant photography love!

  1. Caren, do you scan your polaroids into your computer? How do you upload them?

  3. Johanna - I scan the polaroids (I have an Epson Perfection 2480 Photo scanner). I like to keep digital copies of them, as more oft than not the Polaroid images degrade over time. :)

    Zoe - thanks m'deer! hehehe!
