The story of the Polaroid Kidd is pretty cool/mysterious - in 2003, Mike Brodie, a self-taught photographer from Pensocola, FL, set out riding the rails of America, hanging with hobos, punks, and other young folk, hopping trains and living in squats and exploring a world not many of us get to see, all the while taking beautiful photos of the experience, exclusively with the classic SX-70 Polaroid camera a friend passed along to him.
It seems that, since 2007, he’s disappeared from view, deciding he was done with photography. After a ton of acclaim and shows, including showing work at the Paris International Photo Fair at the Louve, winning the Baum Award for American Emerging Artists, and a supposed photo book to be published by Steidl(that apparently never came to be), he stopped taking photos. In the four years he took photos though, he created an incredible body of work, capturing a group of people at a distinct time and place, with a great balance of curiosity and respect.
At last report, Brodie received his degree from the Nashville Auto Diesel College, and works as a Diesel Mechanic.
Re: where he went, and stopping photography cold turkey, someone on a message board had a nice way of looking at it: “ I’ve been wondering since 2007 where he has gone? no shows, no sites, no contact, no new works, nothing. Like a ghost. My guess is that since it was unintentional to be a “photographer” and exhibit his work in the first place, he sold his work, did some shows and just moved on to life’s next adventure minus a camera.”
Mike, great work. And here’s to the next adventure.

My agility and legs workout for those who only have space and agility ladders to work out with. (You also need something heavy like a dumbbell for one of the exercises but I have something else you can do if you don’t have anything heavy around). You also need an interval timer app!
I posted a short video documenting some of the moves and some of the names may be technically wrong but that is just what I call them! I had done 2 rounds before this video so you can see the sweat pouring down my shirt. My bad.
I believe this workout is about 20 minutes long but I usually do 2-3 rounds of it! Also I didn’t realize how bad my form was for the alternating lunges. Don’t have your knee go over your toes like me :P

Your legs felt like jelly when you crossed the threshold. You were almost tempted to collapse on the floor as soon as you entered the house, but Tate stood right in front of you, preventing you from being a puddle in the ground.
“How was your day- Oh. You look like shit.” He looked you over, his eager expression turning to one of playful pity. “That bad, huh?”
“I can’t move.” you groaned, extending your arms pathetically.
“Well then!” Tate exclaimed, turning around and squatting. “Hop on!”
You smiled and all but slumped over his back, allowing him to readjust you before he stood up again. “Here we go!” He yelled, running off into the house as you squealed and held tight.
