Sad news from Fuji
Fujifilm has just announced that they are discontinuing my favorite instant film, their excellent FP-3000B high speed black & white film.
Even if you aren’t an Polaroid user, please take a minute to sign this petition on change.org to let Fuji know that there is still demand for this wonderful product.
In honor of Oxford declaring ‘selfie’ the word of the year for 2013, I present to you this instant photochemical selfie. Shot with a Polaroid 250 using Fuji FP-3000B film.

Yesterday I took an impromptu day off of work and hiked Mt. Waternomee. It’s the crash site of a B-18 bomber from WWII (story here, if you’re into history). The trail is not well-maintained and tough to pick out at parts, especially with the forest floor covered in a deep layer of dead leaves. The actual crash site feels like you’re walking on to a film set. There were airplane pieces scattered all up the trail; an engine propped against a cluster of birch trees, an airplane wing standing against a silhouette of mountains, chunks of aluminum sprinkled among the autumn leaves. It all felt out of place and a little eerie, but also crazy that over 70 years later and these pieces of tangled metal are still there and fairly well preserved.
