Instant Photography

Try again

Sunsets by the seaside – what’s not to love? I thought I’d risk a Polaroid even though the light was very low (and instant film needs lots and lots of light to be happy).

The first attempt was, frankly, bizzare – nothing to do with the light, just a hitch with the chemicals… kinda cool in a way though.

The bit of the photo in the middle that wasn’t splodgy looked OK though so I tried again and everything was fine and I managed to capture the scene. I am a great believer in just trying something again and again until it fixes itself.

I am writing this as I wait for the parsnip and butterbean soup I’ve made to cook. A very autumnal recipe for a very chilly day. It really feels like I’ve left the summer behind me 180 miles west in Cornwall and returned to a different country!
