Years ago, Geoff and I had a Polaroid Spectra camera that we gave away since the film was discontinued and we were more interested in the SX-70 anyhow. It wasn't until Bre posted her beautiful Spring collection photos that I decided to try out the expired Softtone film available through the Impossible Project. I managed to find another Spectra camera in a thrift shop fairly easily, for about $5. Thank you to Bre for the inspiration!
I wasted an entire package of it taking pictures at home, and of the cats, but I just kept compulsively clicking away. The picture in the top right is a double exposure we tried to create of both cats together, since we can't get a picture of the two of them together in any other way. All the pictures ended up looking abstract, like paintings, which I like.
I ordered some more (what an indulgence!), and I hope that I won't fritter the rest away since the supply of it is dwindling. Please note the ghost cat.
I love the tones in the pictures, which make me think of a few things that I keep in my bedroom: a beaded collar I bought at Zara last fall while in Spain (which, of course, I have yet to wear once), and a silk blouse from Penny Arcade Vintage. I am still really attracted to things that remind me of Neapolitan ice cream.
erin: Oh, that's too bad, but I hope you will/did enjoy your time here!
Camille: Yes, for sure! Geoff and I have only been to Montreal once (somehow?) and it was during a period where none of our friends were living there (seems that there is always someone living in Montreal at some point). We had such a hard time finding places to eat since we knew the perfect little hole in the wall had to be just around the corner. Sadly, we never found it.
in dreams: Yeah, it's lovely! They do have really great coffee, if you're there earlier in the day. Weirdly, ever since I posted this, I haven't been back!

hila: Thanks, lady! I agree. I like the idea of a regular spot, although it can be so hard to find one.
Renee (eatliveshop.com): I think a lot of people aren't aware! Which is why it's such a nice little secret for now.
Morgan Ashley Allen: Thank you! It snowed a lot that night, but it was the pretty, sparkly kind.
