Default Old Polaroids From New Mexico Road Trip (Pic Heavy)

Went on a road trip through ghost towns in New Mexico a number of years ago to shoot with my 4x5 (Look up what a 4x5 is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_format_(photography) ) and took a bunch of polaroids to check my exposure before actually exposing the negative. They had been in a box somewhere for a long, long time...Well, they've been found, scanned, and I thought you guys might like to see them. They've got a very "vintage" feel to them. In no particular order:

You're way too kind. Thank you. I had such an awesome time on this trip. I came away with 8 very good prints from this trip, the rest were just "so-so" negatives and polaroids. Hauling that 4x5 and tripod all over was a feat, haha. I'll get those 8 prints up in this thread soon for you to see, they trump these polaroids

Here's the 8 good ones. Sorry, they're only pictures of the pictures, not scans, so they may look a bit "skewed" due to the angle I had to take them at to reduce the glare. They're mounted on 16x20 matte board so they're a bit harder to scan.

No trouble at all I love doing this kind of stuff. It's my passion. I ordered a film/slide scanner that should be here this week, so you guys better watch out, haha. I'll be super busy and you'll be seeing a lot of things!
