This Building in Ohio Has a Polaroid ‘Security Camera’

Comment

David Hollenack was in an alley southeast of Columbus, Ohio, when he noticed that one of the garages had this unusual Polaroid “security camera” installed.

The 21-year-old Ohio State civil engineering student was in a low-income neighborhood working as an inspector for an engineering firm.

“I was sitting in my truck in an alley doing paper work and I looked up and saw the sign,” Hollenack tells PetaPixel. It read, “Stop littering your on my camera,” with an arrow pointing up to a Polaroid camera aimed at the ground.

Yes, the flash is closed and covering the lens, but perhaps this “security camera” actually works as a deterrent — like a scarecrow in a garden — for people who don’t know what Polaroid cameras are supposed to look like (or what they do).
