Don't leave Polaroid cameras in your car

Especially when Perth's summer weather starts.

After wondering where my Polaroid 230 was, I spied it in the back shelf of my car where it had been (I'm guessing) for at least two weeks. Suffice to say the two shots of expired 669 in it were well rooted.

Coupled with the cold weather in New Zealand sending my SLR680 into "hibernation" in July (simply ejecting dead film pack and replacing it with a new one did the trick. Looks like it was just a case of weather being too cold for battery pack to work properly), 2009 hasn't been a good year for Polaroid photography versus the elements.
