My Father's Polaroids

My father went to Mexico, just after Christmas. He brought his new Polaroid SX-70 camera with him. I'm really in love with what he brought back. More images on my flickr.

Polaroid Display

I bought the book Apartment Therapy Presents: Real People, etc. at the Westsider sometime ago and am slowly making my way through it. I was struck today by Shannon and Emmett's cool digs in Chicago. They converted an old factory into a home and art studio. I love the entire place but am really excited about how they displayed Emmet's 4 x 5 artwork slides. They placed the slides in light boxes above their bed giving the whole room a romantic glow: I'd love to do something similar - which got me thinking about Polaroid display ideas. Here are a few:
