Gentlemen take Polaroids


Jack and I were being total hipsters this morning and taking photos of eachother taking photos. We're stuck in the house today, as the poor wee man is suffering with a chesty cough. Even still, he's in good form. I attribute this to the 'magic' vintage turtle neck he's wearing. (Thanks Lauren!) It has kind of become known as the 'sick jumper'. At the first sign of a sore throat or cough, we layer Jack up and pop this on top, and it seems to keep further symptoms at bay. I think it was the retro vibe of the jumper that inspired me to hand him my Nans old polaroid camera. Snap!

It also gave me a chance to try out my new camera indoors. I upgraded from a Nikon D200 to a D700. An early Christmas present to myself. Worth every penny.
