The Polaroid Project Update #1


If you were around at the beginning of the month, you may have seen that I was starting a little project with my Polaroid camera, something fun for, to keep and look back on. Every day this year I will take one photo, and by the end I'll have a box of 365 of them. Today, we are on day 23, and it just felt like a nice to time update you on things. I didn't want to do anything as structured as weekly or monthly updates, I think sporadic ones throughout the year will be much nicer.

First of all, I'm pleased to say that I haven't missed one day, not one! I'm getting so used to carrying my little Instax camera around with me everywhere I go, that I can already feel myself missing it when this year is over. Some days if I know what I'm doing, I'll have an idea of when I want to take the picture, or who with. Others, I'll just find myself in a situation that would be perfect for one.


Currently, their home is a small Dior box that originally housed a very pretty highlighter. That suits them fine just now, and I think it will be another couple of months before I have to look for something bigger. I've had a look at a few boxes already, but I'm having trouble imagining just how big the pile of picture will be at the end of the year. I don't want to get a box that come September will be too small, or, end up with one that's far too big for them.

When I first started, I wasn't sure how to mark them, I went back and forth between number or date, but eventually I decided that doing both would be the best way to go. Mainly because picking up picture 192, and thinking 'what date was that?', would honestly drive me crazy. This way, I can know what number it is between 1 and 365, and know what date it was too. I'm also colour coordinating them by season with my Sharpies. Just now, because it's all cold and wintery, I'm using icy blues and grey's. I can't wait to see how the colours change through the year.

I can't tell you the number of times I've sat and flicked through what is still a fairly small pile of photos, they are already bringing me so much joy -and it's only day 23! I'm honestly enjoying it so much, I'll be sad when it finishes, but that's still a long way off at the moment.

  1. I love that this is coming along so well! The way you are organizing everything is wonderful, numbering them both ways. I can't wait to see more!
