This summer, traveling around with my Fujifilm Instax, I absolutely fell in love. There’s something to be said about waiting for the right moment. And the film’s pretty expensive so you don’t want to waste it on just anything. Here’s the first of a photo diary series I’m doing with just my photos from my Fujifilm Instax camera from my trip to Kaua’i & Oahu, Hawaii.
