If you know me at all you know that I love Polaroids. There is just something so truly magical about taking a picture and having something to hold in your hand right away.
That being said, it's Polaroid Week on Flickr right now! Polaroid week is a five day celebration of the instant image. Photographers familiar with Polaroid week will sometimes shoot something special exclusively for it, or might hold onto a really great picture for several months to debut it during Polaroid Week.
The idea is to share unseen instant images during the week in the Polaroid Week Flickr Group. Go ahead and take a peek and be inspired. You are allowed to post two photos per day and I'll be sharing my two on my blog for the next few days!
Day one: Lauren Wilkins shot on Impossible Project's SX70 BW Film and the Navy Pier ferris wheel shot on Impossible Project's Magenta Type film (which is amazing).

The Catacombs were unreal. I kept telling my Mom that I felt like I was on a Pirate's of the Caribbean ride or something. It was very hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that those were all actual bones. We tried to go to the cemetary where Jim Morrison is buried but it had just closed. I was disheartened but turned around to see that tiny European car, which made everything better.
Thank you for taking a trip down Parisian memory lane with me!

The Louvre was incredible. Just it's sheer size was amazing. I was, again, a little overwhelmed by how many people were viewing everything through their iPads or camera phones, but it was gorgeous and fun to walk around in. Wish we would have spent a little more time there, but was happy to see the hi lights!

The Museum D'Orsay was gorgeous. Their cafe is amazing, it is quite in there, there is no photography allowed so people are actually taking the art in, instead of trying to get a selfie with it. We also made time to visit The Impossible Project space which was small but very cute. I was elated to find a VW bus in Paris! I have been collecting Polaroids of them lately. That was a masterful find for me!

Our lunch date at Laduree was a dream. It was so fancy and cute and Parisian! It was interesting to read about their history and how and why they were established! The Arc was beautiful, we enjoyed it from below because both my Mom and I were too afraid to go to the top of it. It was insane watching the cars wiz by it. We also had the very best ice cream I have ever tasted in all of my life at a Hagaan Dazs nearby. I definitely prefer baked sweets to cold sweets, but oh my goodness- this ice cream was unreal.
