Many years ago my sister gave me her Polaroid One Step camera and I decided I would use it to take at least one picture every day for a year. I'm not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but I am a sap, and I like to have pictures of my friends and in the days before good digital cameras it seemed like a easy, fun, talent-proof way to document boring, everyday nonsense that only I a few others would care about. In retrospect, I documented a pretty great year - I was in a band I loved with people I loved (and still do), making a record I loved (and now have mixed feelings about), I was in love with an amazing girl, and I met and fell in love with a large lovable family of people known as The DFA. And I have 400+ pictures that document it all.
Since then I have owned two digital cameras that I have hardly used at all. It seems that unless I have a big clunky thing on my shoulder I don't take pictures which is a shame because I've done some shit in the past couple of years that I really wish I had more pictures of. So, the Polaroid is back. It's not convenient, and it's not cheap, but it is fun. So, I will do by best to scan and upload them regularly. Here are some randoms from the past month...Nick
