A new toy . . .

Something called Poladroid, which changes your crisp, sharp digital photos into something reminiscent of a Polaroid. You even have to wait while a small version of it develops slowly on the screen. And you can only do ten at a time, just as if you had bought a cartridge of film. It tries to reproduce the nostalgic badness of a genuine one-of-a-kind-never-can-be-exactly-duplicated stiff item to hold in your hand, complete with a greenish-yellowy color shift, some vignetting and some fuzz-out. This is one of my favorites of the forty I did today, showing two of the grandkids in their tender years, a mere four years ago, instead of forty. It's a free download!
