I had posted some images earlier of ” The Trumpet Player “, it might have been several years ago I am not really sure.  I ran across several more that I thought that I might work up and post.  Shot on 4×5 Polaroid Type 55 film.  These are scans of the processed negatives.  I did not bother trying to clean-up the sides. as I just left them as they are.  The only problem with this Polaroid film is that it scratches very easily and has to be carefully stored, which is something that I very seldom do.  Here is one more image …

One thing that I will say about Polaroid Type 55 film is that it was very sharp … you can see all types of scratches and marks on the horn.  It is a shame that a company like Polaroid closed down completely after they had been such a creative and dominate force in the photography industry for so long.  If you have any comments about either of these images, please feel free to comment.  Also, if you want to say anything about Polaroid, feel free,  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank
