Why I love my Instax

It is magical.

 It looks like a spaceship.  And spaceships are very, very cool.

I can take it out of my pocket, wallet, notebook, or ID sleeve anytime I want to reminisce the good ol' times!

Sadly, I don't get to use my Instax as much as I want to, as the film packs are kinda expensive (each photo costs around mmm...thirty-five pesos?).  I bring it with me on very special occasions though, and I usually give the prints away.  Yup, of all the prints I've done, I kept only these two that you see in this blog post.  The others are with friends and grandmothers.  It's my way of giving them something photographically special! :)

*This is my entry for Instax Manila's Summer Giveaway! If you would like to join (well I hope you don't, because it lessens my chance of winning, haha just kidding, let's spread the analogue love!), do visit Instax Manila's site right here.  :)

I also want an Instax. But still assessing its reasonableness (price, etc.), but I'm really tempted to get one.

good luck on winning instax film with this contest entry! :)

when i took my instax to the philippines last year, i found myself delighting kids with instant photos i took of them. i think part of the joy of this camera is seeing others' eyes light up with enchantment upon seeing the instax photo pop up from the camera! i gave away the photos i took of them, naturally.
