I remember buying my last two boxes of Polaroid film. As the cashier rang them up, she remarked on how expensive each box was. "It's worth it," I replied, "They don't make this anymore." The last Polaroid film expires on September 30, 2009. It will be the end of an era. The website "My Last Polaroid" is collecting a gallery of the last Polaroid taken by photographers around the world in tribute.
Here's mine. I don't think it's the best Polaroid I've ever taken, but it is the last.

So, a moment of silence for Polaroid.
There is something to look forward to on the Polaroid front... The Impossible Dream plans to start producing film for vintage Polaroid cameras in 2010.
