Today's Question(s): Yayyy!

Oops lol I have been so busy I actually forgot:
1. ~To put a little piece of jalapeno pepper in the center of my grilled cheese.
2. ~To clean the microwave.
3. ~To reply to a Rep from a dear friend, about Slim Jims.


Bonus Question: ~~Yayyyyyy, Yeehah!~~~Yippeeee! AAAAAGH!

Have you ever used a Polaroid Camera ? Well, to be truthful about it,
I was really great with a Polaroid camera. Especially the SX-70, but also the older "Swinger" model.
The things you can do with those cameras! You can make pictures that look like paintings! And - oh, they had this light sensor on them.
All you had to do was take a make a little black card and tape it tight to the camera to cover the light sensor - this would leave the shutter open, when depressed, indefinitely. To take awesome multiple exposures you just press the shutter and quickly remove and replace the black card; you can do that many times and not overexpose the shot.
And that 2000 speed B&W film! Wow, great stuff! I'd cover the light sensor, as above, then set the camera in a firm and steady position, facing the night sky. Press the shutter, with the card still covering the light sensor, and leave the camera there for however long you want, depending on moonlight & factors. I'd get wonderful star shots and circumpolar star trails.
I loved the Polaroid cameras and would love to have one now, but they don't make the film for them anymore.


If so did you "shake" the picture to "help" it develop faster ?
Not very often. That film (SX-70) had liquid inside of it that could be manipulated for artistic effects, too.

Today's Question(s):

Oops lol I have been so busy I actually forgot:
Since I have forgotten whatever it was I forgot, I have no idea what it was that I forgot.


Bonus Question:

Have you ever used a Polaroid Camera ?
I had a cheap one about 40 years ago. I maybe took 30 or 40 pictures with it. Being a kid I did not have the budget required to use it.

If so did you "shake" the picture to "help" it develop faster ?
My memory is a little fuzzy on this, but I seem to remember I had to leave the picture in the camera while it developed. When I pulled it from the camera the picture was there. I did have to wipe the picture with some solution. Not sure if that was to stop the developing or for some other reason

How many of you are saying "What's a Polaroid Camera" ?
I suppose the Polaroid Camera is right up with the Slide Rule on the list of things long since forgotten about.

Extra Credit Question:
in honor of "Cleaning For A Reason Day"

What was the last thing that had you cleaning more than usual ?
That would have been almost 4 years ago when I shut down our station in Alaska. Everyone but me quit. So I had to deep clean the place by myself. Took almost a month.

Inspired to go to a Disco ? Not a chance
I was 21 at the time.
