great idea! can't wait to see them all online
great concept Bob
nice! it looks awesome!
Polaroids are awesome... aren't they quitting making it for the U.S.? If so this is like a time capsule of the good 'ol days.
dude you must be super rich
I was going to mention how much money must be tied up in the film on this project...
Awesome idea, oh and Nomad, I heard that some people are trying to get some other company to make them. Here is their website www.savepolaroid.com.
this show was great!!
very neat.. I really like how it connects all these seemingly random people together with Bob as the common factor among them all.
awesome! can't wait to see them.
hey im in it!
cripes, I just noticed two blunders and it's not easy to see the close up roid pans.
that's a lot of pictures! great job of making them all straight on the wall.
that is a pretty cool idea.
what's the song in the background?
are the polaroids in order of being taken? like, is the main person in the polaroid the one who shows up in the mini polaroid in the next picture...?
Such a wonderful idea, everyone you meet being looped together in a never-ending chain. Brilliant
yeah julia, its pretty cool going through all the pictures
That's really cool. We are thinking of bringing this concept to our youth department, everytime we have someone new come in, we can add them to the wall. Very cool idea Bob.
Thanks everybody! I took 7 more this past weekend at the cake party. I wanted to take more but... you're right, Polaroid has discontinued this film that I use. Hopefully someone else will start making this higher quality instant film... or else I'll just have to figure out another way to keep this thing going...
bob, you should look on ebay for the film
you can get it at target...
what's the song playing?
you can get it at target? the same kind that bob uses?
looks awesome and yay hey mercedes song!
coolsy. Polaroids are like a buck each.
That's like...a lot of money.
omg that so fucking cool.
no thats like.. A SHETLOAD OF MONEY. |:
Well, spread over 7 years, it lessens the monetary blow.
Sucks that now the film is even MORE expensive. Just bought 100 exposures on ebay so this'll go on a little while longer!
thats pretty awesome.
Love your project. Yeah, there's something special about a polaroid and I think you've captured it in your work. Good luck!
There's a childrens book called "Flotsam" based on that idea...awesome book even for adults. It won the Caldecott medal too.
hella wickedly sweetly sick.
Bob - you could buy a really small portable photo printer and snap using digital from now on...slightly slower but almost instant!
You should look into something called Deep Zoom that Microsoft is creating - it could be perfect for the website.
Heya! I finally started scanning and posting all of the Polaroids! Woohoo! Check em out! Expect about 2 or so a day. At that rate, they should all be up by Dec 31 2009.
awesomeeeee!!! keep it rolling!!!!bob
Wow, never saw this until I found the link on That's Dope. Awesome project.
