139/365 I went hunting for rhododendron in bloom but discovered the hills still needed some time to come around (or maybe we're already done?), so instead we took a picture by a waterfall... (Don't our bodies look photoshopped?! There not though, it's just a weird perspective) #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #thisissorad #tucquanglen #tucquanglennaturepreserve #noflowers #everyotherrhododendronisblooming
138/365 I kinda forgot my camera at home this afternoon (and by kinda, I mean I did...which was super frustrating to realize), so shooting at night was my only option. Thankfully, since Gap is a town that prides itself on late night activities (that's sarcasm by the way..), I went over to the local park and got a few long exposures of the Amish guys playing softball. That's probably not too exciting for people who live around here, but it was definitely fun to explore the park at night and see what its like after hours. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #amishsoftball #lancastercounty #amishcountry #amish #gappark #softball
137/365 Just hangin' with an awesome girl in her tiny house. Thank you Chester County for gems like this! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #tinyhouse #chestercounty #chestercountypa #wheresandrewwyeth
136/365 Looking back at the handful of photos I snapped today - which consisted of a shot of Noah covering his face, two shots of the sunset (I waited by the side of the road for for 5 minutes as a local farmer plowed his field and casually rolled into the frame), and a blurry accidental push of the shutter release - I came to this conclusion: one thing that is at the heart of this project is capturing memories. And choosing this image out of the others is a stab a remembering that in 2017 the Stikes lived close to me. And, while that may not always be the case, I'm glad I'll get to look back and know the influence they've had on my life. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #churchfam #wednesdaynightshenanigans #finallygotapictureofnoah #sneakyshot
135/365 So glad that I could spend time with @captbilmer this morning. He is both high energy and peaceful relaxation all wrapped up into one, so our conversation usually leads to much contemplation afterwards. * Thought of the morning: from C.S. Lewis, "Nothing that you have not given away will be really yours.." #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #breakfast #climbtothepinnacle #dadbodhangout
133/365 Happy Mother's Day to an awful special woman! Thank you for loving Kelsey and I through all of our ridiculousness. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #mothersday #mom #loveyoumom @kjmiller163
132/365 This is the facial expression @blinc32 makes when you surprise him by hiding around the side of the house and setting a flash off in his face. Oh, and he is now also beard-less..?! A day of surprises, indeed! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #surprise #instantfilm #flashintheface #wheredyourbeardgo #candid #madethecut
131/365 What an enjoyable night! It's not often you get to see an old high school friend play music live (and do it well, at that! - @_timweaverpa_ ), while getting to enjoy a nice meal out with a pretty lady - @ellharts A classy evening out. Thank you Tim ( and @speckledhencoffee for the food) for sharing your talent with us and enhancing the room with your sweet tunes. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #speckledhencoffee #livemusic #cafe #coffeeshop
130/365 All about that baked ziti life!! (And leftovers for days!) #productplacement But really, taking a photo like this is just part of the process of exploring what instant film has the capabilities of capturing. Everyday something happens. So one of my roles in this process is selecting what gets placed in the frame. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #bakedziti #dinner #pastasauce #actionsshot
129/365 Today was another day of failure at the Smiley Boulder. This is now the 3rd time (this year) that I've been shut down on this problem, and though it's challenging, this past weekend I climbed problems of an equal grade and harder - making the lack of success that much more frustrating. Guess it's going to come down to perseverance if I'm ever going to send this thing (and maybe a little more rest of the forearms...). P.S. Despite the frustration, it was a beautiful day to be outside - and that I wasn't upset about! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #rockclimbing #bouldering #gretna #gretnabouldering #climbing #climbpa
128/365 Discovered a Chinese Lilac at my parents house today - and it smells incredible! (unless you have allergies...) It's been pretty enjoyable viewing spring through the lens of this camera. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #flowers #spring #springblooms #chineselilac
126/365 So, after going into a weekend where everyday was forecasted rain, it turned out to be a beautiful time in the Gorge. Climbing everyday with gorgeous, sunny weather two of the three days (and there was always something dry even though it rained at night). Couldn't ask for much more. Pictured is the large arch bridge across the New River; had to see it at least once before we headed out of town! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #visittheville #visitwv #visitfayetteville #newrivergorge #newriverbridge #findyourpark #nps
125/365 A little damp on the trail but the rocks were pretty dry (at least the ones with good rock cover on top 😉)! Spent the day at The Rico Suave Buttress and had a good day out at the Gorge climbing some sandstone. Pictured is the crew of diehards (minus one - @kelseygold10 ) willing to trek in and out on the old muddy miners' trail to get to the crag. Day 2 = soggy but successful! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #rockclimbing #visittheville #waterfalls #kaymoorcrag #kaymoorminerstrail #sportclimbing #dependswhoyouask
124/365 So all the talk about rain...well...you can see from the photo; turned out a little different than expected! We had a beautiful day at Summersville Lake, with mostly dry conditions. @mattysmiller is pictured, cruising to the anchors on Souled Out - 5.9. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #isitcrispyorcrunchy #visittheville #climbingtrip #rockclimbing #sportclimbing #BAS #dependswhoyouask #summersvillelakeclimbing #summersvillelake
