Christmas 1969, the photo is identified as “Alice’s new hair.” The photo itself is a Polaroid, the type before the instant print that fed out of the front of the camera. The photo was snapped, then pulled out of the side of the camera. The protective sleeve was removed, then the photo developed as the photographer waited. It was then mounted onto a firm card, where the photographer could write notes about the image, and the card made the photo inflexible and not very bendable. The photos have amazing resiliency of color and do not appear to fade much over time. I have others like this one and the color and depth of image are still lovely 40 years on. This is what I love about film versus digital.
It is Christmas Eve today, so hopefully you are too busy with your family and looking at this retroactively. (Honestly I am pre-writing this, heh.)
