California on Instant Film

I am currently obsessed with instant images.  It all started when someone suggested we do a 365 on instant mini film... then I watched the Time Zero documentary, got a very old SX-70 sonar camera, and an instant back for my Mamiya RZ67.  Honestly it was love at first sight.  My first images were rough, it was winter, I didn't understand how to keep them in the shade.  Nothing came out.  But I kept trying, and now I have a collection of 7 or so vintage Polaroid cameras found at Savers or Tag Sales, I also now have a Mint Camera, a Spectra Camera and I won an I-1... These images were taken with my vintage Spectra Camera, or my Mint camera with the Time Machine.  I am trying to use my phone less, and wanted to try to do my normal, photo a day, on instant instead of using my Iphone.  So here it is....
