King Street, South Shields

Remember those Polaroids, waving them about to dry in the air, and the outrageous cost of new supplies? Oh what fun you could have showing your friends an instant print, now you just turn your digital camera about and let them view the display screen. How times have changed and technologies progressed.

This is a multi Polaroid view of a balloon seller in King Street, South Shields last weekend, looks like everyone found his balloons to be a big laugh.

It took me a while to create this look in Photoshop there are around 30 layers and one clipping mask, it’s not too difficult, I followed this tutorial. I’m just hoping that the .jpeg compression isn’t too heavy.

  1. It was sad to see the demise of Poloroid. Many of my acquaintances lost their jobs there over the last few years.
    Your display is “cool”. Would make for an intersting TV commercial.

  3. Cool! Did you know one man bought the poloroid factory and is paying the R&D staff for one year to attempt to recreate poloroid film…but they have to figure it out with different chemicals beacause some of the originals are no longer availabl? I listened to a radio broadcast about it recently. I hope he can do it…poloroids were so much fun!
