mornings on the beach

I slipped out of our hotel room a little early one morning to spend a little time on the beach alone, and I took the Polaroid Land Camera with me.

The blues this film captures is amazing.  And as Dottie’s photos confirm, peel apart film does not like sand (see the 1st photo as evidence).

So calm. So comforting.  And as I do on almost every vacation, I often convince myself that we should simply move.  Right here on the beach.

    How lovely and peaceful.

    My husband just surprised me with two land cameras for our anniversary. I can’t wait to put them to good use!ReplyCancel

    How cool to see these! What are the chances of two women wandering around beaches with Land Cameras? Love it. Beautiful, calm photos.ReplyCancel
