As August draws to a close, it really feels like the nights are drawing in and that summer is on the way out. The people at Ocean Loans sent me a super Fujifilm instant camera to be able to document my summer in their summer polaroid pictures projects, so even though summer is almost over I’ve been able to snap some moments from great times!
Summer polaroid pictures
The theme of the project was in and around your home, and as I’ve made a home in Newcastle (for almost 12 years now!) I decided to take a few shots out and about. First stop was the quayside! Every year the Quayside Seaside makes an appearance and I love it. There are beach huts, deckchairs and places to chill out, or to play a bit of volleyball if you’re feeling a bit more energetic! I love the palm trees too – they look great agains the backdrop of the Millennium Bridge and the Baltic 🙂
Speaking of beach huts, how lovely would it be to make one of these your home for the summer?
Or why not go on an adventure and make a tall ship your home? We went along to the Tall Ships festival at the weekend and it was fantastic. The ships race from Blyth to Sweden this year, and they certainly would make an interesting home! I loved all the colours on the ships, and the people were so friendly too.
In our home, we’ve been making the most of the sweet peas. They took a while to come out, but the beauty of them is that the more you cut them, the more they grow! They smell amazing and are just so pretty – definitely one of my favourite summer flowers, and they’ll certainly last for a couple more weeks yet. Hooray!
Using this instant camera
I have never used a polaroid camera before this project. The Fujifilm instant camera is a great one to just pop in your bag and take out and about! A couple of the photos I took didn’t turn out that well, but that’s polaroids I guess. I really liked being able to have an instant print to hold in my hand. I’ll definitely be using this camera to record more memories! What have you been up to this summer? What’s your favourite memory?
