A PolaWalk around Klyde Warren Park, the Arts District & the M-Line Trolley

On February 24th, the Instant Film Society hosted its largest walk yet. Almost 100 instant fanatics joined up with us and we took to the streets of Dallas wielding our analog film cameras.

This photo walk was definitely unique. Besides it being the largest yet, we had a couple of people who trekked a long way to join up with us. Toby Hancock, an uber-talented instant photographer from Los Angeles, decided on a whim the Friday before to come to Dallas! He kept it a surprise until the day of the walk, but when I found out, I was so stoked.  How cool is that? Another notable journey was from Lisa Harris; a talented instant/film lover who drove up from Houston (~5 hours away). She runs a lomography group down there and also owns I Heart Cameras, an online camera shop. The fact that these two, and many others from around the north Texas area joined up with us, reinforces the daily efforts we’re making to push this medium back to the public.

The day ended up being perfect.  71 degrees, sunny and slightly windy.

We strolled around Klyde Warren Park, the Dallas Arts District and eventually made our way up McKinney Ave. on the M-Line Trolley.  It was a fantastic day.

These are some of my favorite images from the walk.  We shot a mix of expired & new Impossible Project film, expired Polaroid, and Fuji peel-apart and Instax film.

The ones who stayed until the end!

The ones who stayed until the end!

 

All in all, an incredible day!

PolaWalks were started in this area last Fall as a way to simply hook up with other like-minded shooters around the area. As this has grown, it has sparked an instant movement that has evolved into something larger.  I’m really excited about all that we have planned for this next year.  There is some cool stuff up ahead.
