Nouveau Polaroids

My daughter's weekly child-rearing Polaroids now and hereafter will be brought into existence using the new clone film which pops out of the camera with variously colored borders rather than traditional white and this is a good thing from a practical viewpoint because in the future it will be easy to tell where the break came in the Polaroid archive of the Life of Mabel who was born AFTER Polaroid film had already gone out of production but whose first few years were documented anyway using dead-stock film until it became unobtainable and chemically degraded but by that time Mabel was already a little child and no longer the baby who populated all those white-bordered pictures.
