Polaroids by Elizabeth Soule

Photographer Elizabeth Soule still uses the old Polaroid 600 film, which was completely discontinued two years ago to take most of her pictures. Given its limited supply, you can imagine the careful planning that goes into each and every single one of her Polaroid photographs, which are whimsical vignettes involving plastic toys, flowers, found objects and - occasionally - human beings: "I will sometimes wait a couple of days, or even a couple weeks, before photographing, thinking through what it is I want to create. I will take quite a bit of time setting up my lighting and composing the scene before I'm ready to take the picture." But when she does take the snap, the results are timeless, adorable and perfectly unusual. Visit her blog for more.
