Happy Accidents

I finished my first "roll" of Instax Mini film after a nice photography walk downtown this afternoon. Lots of great pictures, lots of happy accidents! I'm really enjoying instant photography and how little control I have over the process. And it's so much more than just snapping a picture. One must be somewhat thoughtful and careful, as each photograph costs about $1. Then, after you've taken the picture, you watch the lines, colors, and patterns slowly appear. It's rather magical and you can't help but reflect as you watch each image appear. Then laugh at the blurriness and effect of the flash, or marvel at "how well that one turned out!" Yeah, I think I am in love.

I love all of your pictures! There's such a romantic quality to instant photographs and not having much control over the process.

This makes me want an instant camera so bad! I love these pictures - so sweet and artistic.

Gah! You're so great at photography! I wish I had half as much talent as you do Natalie!
