first adventure with the instax

undefinedundefinedundefined Fuji Instax 210 | Fuji Instax Wide Instant Film A few shots from my first adventure with the Fuji Instax, which was a lot of fun!  I knew that this camera was big, but I have to admit that I was shocked by HOW big!  It's definitely bigger than my daughter's toy camera - but it feels good in my hands.  It's definitely a conversation piece - I was stopped by the lady who owns this tree because she was so curious about what I was shooting with!  We ended up talking for almost an hour....

There's nothing quite like polaroids, but it felt good to go for a photo walk and return with a stack of pictures!  I think I'm going to like this camera.....

a few thoughts on photography

undefinedundefinedundefined Polaroid 660 Land Camera| Polaroid 600 film (oh how I miss my 600 film!) One of the things I love the most about photography is the ability to forever capture an instant in time.  And knowing that these pictures will live on much longer than me.  Capturing not what's there, but what I see - My perspective, my spin, my vision.  The funny looks I get in public when I am composing, focusing, and clicking away (most times with a baby on my hip) don't bother me at all.

In fact, sometimes I feel sorry for those people who don't see.  And I feel that if I could just put a camera in their hands, maybe, just maybe - they will be able to notice the beauty in their lives.
