Mom Polaroid


Here's another Polaroid I took, this time of my mom at her condo in Aptos.

As I'm working on these Polaroid scans, I realize, to get these shots I'm carrying around this fairly cumbersome camera (Mamiya RZ67-II) and ending up with a scanned photo not much better resolution than that of a camera phone... in fact, I think my iPhone takes sharper pictures when comparing the scans.  But still, there's something about the look of the Polaroid that I like.  I've always thought sharpness was overrated anyway.  One thing I don't like about digital is that most images come out clinically sharp.  I like a little softness in images.
