Impossible Project Fade to Black film personal project

Well I finally got a Polaroid SX-70 and could use the awesome Fade to Black film I had bought in NYC when I visited the newly opened Impossible Project space.

I decided to enjoy the beautifully sunny, warm day (Thursday, Sept 2, 2010) by working on this personal project and using the film by walking around my neighborhood, the Mission, and finding random folks to take portraits of at some of my favorite spots.  I also asked them to write down one word that they could relate to currently. Here’s what I got!
