tuesday's instax: american gothic and the nubble lighthouse


Growing up, I spent a lot of time at this lighthouse.  

Brooding, dreaming, plotting, fretting.  

Thinking.

I never thought that I would be back there, as an "adult", five years after moving away from Maine, doing the American Gothic pose with the man I love.

  1. what would the maine equivalent be of a pitchfork, i wonder... heh! :)

    completely off-topic, but does the instax have a self-timer? that is a fantastic feature, if so. i'm really running out of polaroid film+am thinking i should switch at some point...

  2. the instax does not have a self timer unfortunately. it's also humongous. much larger than you'd think. so it's not exactly practical, but i really love the photos it takes.

  3. "Brooding, dreaming, plotting, fretting." -- all beautiful in their own way.

    (although i am sad there is no self-timer. siiiigh.)
