May 2012: My last Polaroid :(

I'm not that active lately, but every now and then an idea pops into my head, like this self-project with frames. After having spent more than half an hour building a tripod made from a ladder and a huge stack of books, framing and re-framing, and making my boyfriend release the shutter for lack of a cable release, I got this little Polaroid- unfortunately, this might have been my last because my camera died right afterwards.

    @all: thanks so much!!! @bloomchen: danke! von ebay hatte ich meine kamera auch, aber gerade bin ich sowas von pleite (und hab deswegen noch nicht mal die lc-a ersetzen können, die seit über 6 monaten kaputt ist), da ist nix drin- aber ich hoffe auf den sofort-bildshop in mitte irgendwo und dass die irgendeinen tollen geheimkniff kennen, die alte ganz einfach zurück zum laufen zu bringen. ich bring sie demnächst mal dahin...

    Looking back on this, were you able to repair your SX or you got a new one ?

    @mikahsupageek: Well, both actually. I wasn't able to repair it at first. So I got a new one, and then, while I was yet again procrastinating from my studies, I managed to repair it. So I have 2 SX now, which is rather cool to be honest :)
