193 Uncommon

A 1935 All-Brass fan from the Italian electromechanical firm "Marelli" photographed with a 1992 Polaroid Image System camera on instant paper. Quite uncommon, I dare say!
Haha uncommon indeed! That is a very cool looking fan actually, it's beautifully designed. You know we don't make things like that anymore...

I like this and the way you processed it to - it goes well together. I can see it on a book cover.

@kerosene thank you! nor we do, actually, this is 82 years old...

@LaLa thank you! too kind of you. No processing at all, however: straight out of (instant) camera...

@domenicododaro That is really good ---- it think it goes well with the Polaroid frame and how you composed it. Yes indeed quite uncommon but beautiful.

We have an old brass fan very similar to this. I'm also a fan of this shot.

@graemestevens thank you kindly! As a fan, be careful not to let your head spin... 😉

The Polaroid treatment suits this beautiful art-deco fan perfectly.

@vignouse I'm so happy of having retrieved this relatively new Pola at a second hand shop. Thank you

I love the metallic sheen of this old fan xx

Yes almost an antique and processed in an almost antique method. Cool! Does it still work?

@psychographer Thank you Lisa!

@joysabin They both work, the fan (I think the tension has been somehow changed from 125 to 220) and the Polaroid! The main difference is that if you put a finger too close to the Polaroid it shoots and you waste some money, if you put a finger too close to the fan you lose the finger ;-)

LOL and no fingers, please
