Polaroid Odds and Ends

In case it's not already clear, for about the last year I've been carrying around one of my old Polaroid Land Cameras as my, um --please don't laugh --second camera body.  The analogue features of the Polaroid really force a serious slow-down in the approach to shooting and, as a result, lends itself to impromptu portraiture.  Like most of the long-term stuff I'm working on, the start and finish of the Polaroid project is a little bit grey and will probably only really end when the last box of pack film rolls off Fuji's assembly line.  Anyhow, these frames are all side-notes to the TIME shoot featured below, people that I met wandering around Arapahoe County, Colorado.
