Instant photography at Magnuson Park, Seattle

Right after Cassidy and I moved here to Seattle we took a bus ride up to Magnuson Park on a sunny September weekend. I remember it being really hot because I wore a hoodie the whole time. I wanted to use my Polaroid camera with Impossible film in it and at the time Impossible film was still very sensitive to sunlight, especially right as it came out of the cartridge. The best defense against this was to install a frog tongue on your camera to act as s shield for when the film first comes out. Or as I found out, one could also snap the photo and then quickly sneak the camera inside a jacket and let the film eject in darkness there. I went with the latter approach, but this meant wearing a hoodie when it is in the low 70s (Fahrenheit) outside. I got a little sweaty, but we still had a fun time walking around the park and exploring as much as we could.
