Camera: Polaroid: SX-70 Land Camera - Sonar OneStep
Film: T-600
Location: Hapuna Beach, Hawai'i

Ohh for the love of the ocean I have. It's strange, most of the time when I'm in the water I lose myself. I break down and focus. I do open ocean swimming. Hah, don't take me to be a person that swims too long of distances. But I do enjoy a good work out. Anyway, I think in a past life I was a fish.

Beautiful :) The colours are great in this one, and I have a huge love for the beach too so I can relate to it.
I love this, it has a dreamlike feel to it to me. Which is enhanced by the colours and the fact that it's a polaroid.

Why thank you. I like to refer to my work as having a "lucid" toneality. I take that approach when I'm in the zone.

Oh yeah, I :heart: this!

How are you finding using the T-600 film on the SX-70?

Thanks man.

In really bright conditions out in the open it's almost unusable. But in the shade on a sunny day you can get away with alot. I happen to like it, even whey they over expose. I want to order the ND filter they make for it. Just when I have the money! :)

Of course, you need an ND filter to use that film with the SX70. Is it's installation something that will alter the camera meaning that you can only use that film with it?

Well, I've gotten mixxed reports. I'm thinking there are two types. One that clips in and another that you glue in. You could use time zero, you'd just have to turn up the brightness level. But it dosen't really matter anyway, I don't even want to get a pack of time zero, for fear that I'd love it too much. :P

Trying to chill for the most part. I took a month off when my sis and her boyfriend were here from sweden. I was working too much, didn't really have much of a life there for a few months. But now I'm getting things together, slowly but surely.

Are you still at your brothers place or did you find an apartment?
