The Instant

I haven't taken many photos in Indiana or Kansas throughout my trip so far but I have managed to photograph the people I've met, and those who have been kind enough to house/feed/hang with me. It's been a humbling experience knowing that some of them could have said "no" as easily as they said "yes." The generosity I've experienced from friends and strangers has left an indelible impression on me and I can only hope to give back as much as I've received. 

Here are some photos from my Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic. Still learning to shoot with it proficiently and, although I think I'm embarrassed to say it, I think instant film is my favorite type of film to shoot. A physical artifact straight from your life, the way you see it, in an instant.
