Reader photo: Tommy's

A Polaroid from a digital photo? It's all in the process.

Toby Hancock made this image of Tommy's Original World Famous Hamburgers by first taking a picture with a Canon S90. Then, he imported the photo into Instagram, where it was cropped and filtered, then emailed the image to Impossible Project NYC, which used an Impossible Project Instant Lab to make a Polaroid of the digital.

The resulting Polaroid was then mailed back to Hancock, a scan of which can be seen above.
