”Instax Printing” Cedar Park, 2017

こんばんは!How’s it going?

This evening I printed out several photos that I took in December and earlier this month. I love using my Instax printer! Not only does it make the photos cooler, but it makes me examine my photo library in a different way. When I am making my selections, I ask myself why this photo over that photo, and how come this one is good for sharing online, but it’s not good for printing.

Most of the time it’s because the prints are mostly for myself to look at, while online photos are less personal, less sentimental. I don’t think strangers care about holiday photos so much, do they?

I also use the Instax printer to make prints of my favorite actors and movie posters. I use them as bookmarks or just because I like to look at beautiful faces sometimes. It’s a little odd to be printing those kinds of photos out, but whatever. I love my movie/tv poster prints!

We’ve gotten so used to taking photos to share on Instagram or Facebook that it seems odd to create them simply for our own personal joy.

I hope you had a nice Wednesday.
