Two Things I Really Don't Get
 The interest some folks show in polaroids.So that means I really don't get this essay in The Guardian by Geoff Dyer - "Gone in an Instant" - discussing lost/discarded polaroids that have been found and collected together. You can see some of the images, including the one I've lifted for this post, in the accompanying slide show. I know a number of famous, accomplished photographers (e.g., Andre Kertesz, Walker Evans, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, etc.) have monkeyed around with polaroids. The difference between any of that work and the photographs they made using other technologies seems to me massive. Although I wouldn''t go so far as to to say I welcome the impending extinction of polaroid technology, I surely do not regret it.
