falling stars

It is truly  a miracle, any way you look at it. Light falls on a photo sensor, or on film, be it instant or not. An image is created firstly in the mind of the photographer, and then on pixels, negative, positive or polaroid.

Sometimes it comes out just how you planned.

Sometimes it’s completely different to how you imagined it and you are delighted and surprised.

However it comes out, it’s magic, fairy dust and falling stars, from light and imagination and a sprinkling of hard work, mixed with a pinch of good luck.

(There are more wonderful photos from Lisa and others taking part in Polaroid week in the Utata pool. Do check them out.)
