taken with my iPhone but here are a few shots taken with my Fuji Instax, similar to a Polaroid camera, outputting instant film.

Suzanna Climbs a Tree

It's not often I climb trees these days but a slightly chilly spring day came along and the tree was there.  20 feet up, Suzanna is in full swing, trying desperatley to match the playground equipment.
