taking out the polaroid 250 and expired film

March 17, 2011

With the beautiful barn down the street at 2335 McCoy Road, Bear, DE, soon to be restored (thankfully) I have been out as often as I can to photograph it. In the last few weeks the crazy strong winds have blown out the south-western wall resulting in the roof curving inward. The possibility of it falling any day has also expedited my desire to capture it on film. Plus, I’ve met the soon-to-be owners and they are quite happy with me photographing it. So, I’ve felt free to really take my time, wander all around it, and get to know it even more. My goal is to get as many photos on film as I can and use as many cameras as time allows. Along with my trusty Holgas I’ve taken out the Polaroid 250 I bought on eBay in May, 2010, along with Polaroid 100 Chocolate Giambarba Expired and Polaroid 664 Twin Giambarba Expired. My ultimate goal is for the photographs of the barn to make up my show at Colourworks in October. Here are six unedited samples with the Chocolate.

    Hi Bill!

    my name is Paul Kaiser and i am a photographer and I a sample of my work is below – I have reached out to you in the past and hope i am not intrusive. I am in the middle of a Polaroid shoot using the Chocolate type 100 and the last batch i found was sold to me and was bad. I am in the middle of a shoot and am desperately looking for any box of Chocolate Type 100 i can find. I have Polaroid Sepia film i will trade if it helps. I will of course pay for the film.

    If you have any for sale of may know of any leads i would be very grateful and would even give a “finders” fee to show appreciation.

    In gratitude

    Paul Kaiser
