It all began when I was in Santa Monica with Made U Look earlier this year. They did a shoot with a collection of vintage cameras and when I saw the outcomes from one of their Polaroids, it made me miss mine. Over my last few trips with Gala, she’s packed along her Fuji Instax (I like the Instax because the film is widely available)but every time I thought about getting one, I reminded myself that I was already carrying my iPhone and Nikon D40 everywhere in my purse…how many cameras did I really need to lug around?!
Well, that spark of the instant photo gratification struck again when I was at The Ace Palm Springs last month — the lobby had a photo booth and I went overboard putting it to use with some Design Life friends. I was still missing the aspect of having photos I could hold.
Over the weekend, I finally picked up an Instax for my New York trip. It’s been years since I’ve had an instant camera and I can’t wait to put it to use. Do any of you have one? What do you think?
