I know what you’re thinking - “oh yippie-dee-doo-da, another kid with an Instax and a scanner”.
You know how people are more mindful of things they know are limited or have a shelf life? That’s what I’m trying to do. I’m trying to be mindful of moments and memories… by spending on film to take shitty photos with HAHA because iPhones and digital cameras have (somewhat) trivialized the human experience.
It’s working, though. Going into the world, camera in hand, with the mindset "I’m going to take a photo of what stands out today, what moves me the most" actually allows you to see your life in a different perspective - it forces you to pay more attention to detail, to things that matter and things that you don’t normally notice.
Took these with my sister's 5 (or 6?) year-old Fujifilm Choco Instax Mini 7s. I chanced upon the camera while I was packing for a trip. She was kind enough to lend it to me to practice with before getting my own. Neo Classic, come to me!
It’s nice to finally have something to blog about. Or maybe the lack of sleep is getting to me.
Oh how I’ve missed you, Tumblr.
