PX No. 65
CAMERA: Polaroid Colorpack II
FILM: Polaroid ID-UV (expired)
LOCATION: Vacant Storefront
PX No. 65 (CP No. 3)
I'd been wanting to shoot this boarded-up building for quite a while and finally took the time to stop and make some prints. This long-vacant building looks like it used to be a K-Mart or Wal-Mart but obviously hasn't been occupied for several years. It is located in the 2400 block of Commercial Way, (US Hwy 19) in Spring Hill, Florida. I stood on the back bumper of my Suzuki Samurai to try and line it up correctly. There are a few other shots of this bldg. CP No. 5, and PX No. 66, which as of this posting has not been left anywhere yet.
PX No. 65 was left on August 1, 2008 just below the elevator buttons of the 37th floor of the Sheraton Hotel in downtown New Orleans, LA. My mother, Karen Rothstein, left it there while staying there on a train trip while volunteering for the National Parks Service. She won $5.00 at the casino that night...
I got an email from Kat Painter on 8/8/08 saying they found it and would "send it somewhere interesting." I hope they'll add a comment here about their thoughts... Let's see where it ends up...
