Wow, I can’t believe the organizers of the NYU Violet Ball, our annual university-wide dance, still have a Polaroid picture booth (as evidenced above). While Polaroids do add a vintage feel to any dance, I feel that students would really love to have higher quality photos that they can easily access and tag online, possibly via Facebook. Perhaps our future Violet Ball committees will realize that we live in the 21st century and start using digital photography at some future point. Until then, I guess students will continue to be amazed by the wonders of low-quality, slow-developing Polaroids. Yeah for the past!
