The Examined Life

"Yesterday I came across a slightly mysterious website — a collection of Polaroids, one per day, from March 31, 1979 through October 25, 1997. There’s no author listed, no contact info, and no other indication as to where these came from. So, naturally, I started looking through the photos. I was stunned by what I found."

Sound interesting? It is. One Polaroid a day every day for eighteen years.

If you want a synopsis of what the above poster discovered in looking through those eighteen years' worth of photos you can read the rest of the above post from mental_floss.

Or just head straight to the site and discover for yourself. But I highly recommend you go through the whole collection in chronological order – though not necessarily in one sitting.

BTW: Almost forgot. Polaroid announced on February 8, 2008 that they are ceasing production of Polaroid film. So, if you want future generations to know what all the fuss [You'll have to click the preceding link – it won't allow embeding. – Ed.] was about – stock up or join the effort to save the format.
