To me one of the coolest things I visited in Las Vegas was the Polaroid Museum. The museum featured a time line of Polaroid cameras as well as artifacts including every day items from Edwin Land's office. Land was a big thinker and way ahead of his time, he thought wistfully about capturing pictures instantly and tucking them away in a pocket. He kind of wished for a camera phone forty-some years before its widespread use. Land invented a polarized film when he was 19 and received contracts from the military for its use. With that he founded what would become the Polaroid Corp. We pretty much know the rest of the story, constant improvements brought the price down to where regular people could afford it and then Warhol popularized it and it blew up from there. Cool stuff, pictures have lost the glamour they once had but to photo buffs the picture taking process will always hold a little mystery.
