McMurdo Station, Antarctica

I'm only passing through McMurdo Station but was lucky to have one day here with warm and windless weather so I was able to get out & about to take a few photos. 

I first tried shooting some Impossible Project films on my Polaroid camera but this is proving a little trickier than I thought it would be. A DIY engineered solution for keeping the whole system warm while outdoors is in order and it's top on my list of personal projects when I arrive at South Pole, which will hopefully be sometime this week.

These are just a few shots from around town. The station has all of the amenities and activities that you would find in a normal stateside town.

What do you think they do in the Spot Shop?
