Polaroid Lightmixer 630 Camera:
Another great shoot for a birthday present by one of my sisters is this great Polaroid Lightmixer 630 Camera. It´s in absolute mint condition with the manual and two films by the Impossible Project. The manual was printend in 1982 so I guess the Polaroid Camera is from around the same age.

Im really exited about taking the first images with this camera. With the price of each image of about 2,5 Euro you carefully choose what images you take and it adds to the joy when the result turns out as imagined. Probably the best mix of taking images. Not to have them instantly and too quick as with a digital camera.  And not so slow to develop and unpredictable results as with a traditional 35mm film camera. The time to wait for the images to show on a polaroid was always fun and special – if not magic to me, and probably still will be.

My alarm clock collection – just give me 5 more minutes!
Tomorrow I have to get out earlier than I´m used to, so I guess to post some images of my “friends” who will wake me up is more than appropriate. No honestly only the yellow Remington Rperry does his job right now.
Why?
– The Mebus alarm clock works fine, the tick-tack isn´t a real problem. More the task to wind him up once a day is a difficult one for me.
– The Krups would have been my choice, he is cool has a well done snooze trigger (just hit him). But he gets somehow quite noisy after a while a real “brrrrrrmmmm”.
– The Remington Sperry has got a illumination and an absolute annoying ring tone, and he will not stop to ring until you hit him. He wont stop until he dies so better you switch him off before you go on holiday.  The bad thing is the snooze and the stop button are next to each other. No way I would hit the right one, so I always make sure I hit both.
He is compared to the Krups ultra silent. The Instruction of the backside is amazing, they even tell you to hit him in case of a malfunction. A great detail.

To backup all of them for sure there is the mobile phone also doing his service.
