Colorshade Still Lifes (or, Instant Photography Still Lives!)

I keep shooting and shooting, but I haven't had a lot of time to scan photos lately. However, I do hope you'll enjoy these still life photos I've taken with the beautiful, new Impossible Project PX70 Colorshade film for Sx-70 cameras.

St. George's Absinthe Verte
I love this wonderful California-made Absinthe by St. George's Spirits.

A Basil Bouquet
I have a massive (as in, over a yard tall!) basil plant on my walkway. I took some cuttings and made this impromptu bouquet. After a couple of weeks, I noticed that it was not only still ultra-fresh, but it has grown roots, so I gave it to a friend to start her own plant.

I love the delicate pink color that appeared on this photo. It lends a new life to this familiar orchid, I think!

I'm so grateful to the Impossible Project for all that they are doing to make it possible for us all to shoot beautiful instant photos! It's an exciting adventure to be shooting these first-generation films, and I am doubly-excited to share them with you!
