The Polaroid camera that belongs to me is immensely important for me. I’m not a materialistic person but since the time my mother gifted me this camera, I am totally obsessed with it. On my birthday this year, I got a Fujifilm Polaroid camera in a clunky pastel pink color as a present and it has been a crucial part of my life from that day. As a kid, instant photographs that were shown in the movies fascinated me and I always dreamt of owning a device that develops pictures within minutes.
It has been two months since I turned 23 and my parents presented me with this camera when I got my university results. It holds a special place in my heart as I was rewarded for performing exceptionally well in my exams. As I have always been fond of photography, I used it to click my friends and loved ones pictures and it is the best way to make memories with them. The photograph that develops gives a vintage effect and captures memories admirably.
The reasons why it is significant in my life is that primarily, it is gifted to me by my mother. In addition, it captures the present moment in a perfect way making it more memorable. I have also reserved a space in my room where I have a collection of all the unforgettable and momentous moments by sticking Polaroid pictures on the wall and this corner of my room has to be my personal favorite space.
