24 Tower 4 am - Time exposure

24 tower 4 am

My old Polaroid could easily be tricked into doing stuff it was never designed to do. Among these was the ability to take very long time exposures and to make double exposures. To make a time exposure all that was needed was to block any light from hitting the photo cell at the front of the camera. You could do this easily with a finger. Hold the camera steady, block the sensor, and you can get pictures like this.
