205/365 Just to provide a little context, those are big, fat, plump steaks in the foreground surrounded by lots of smiling people who are about to dine. 🍴🍽 Maybe their smiling because of the steaks, or maybe it's just because of the picture - that much is up for debate. Either way, we had a nice dinner, and I'm glad I could try out the wide angle lens! Day two of the new camera still has me psyched for all of it's capabilities. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #lomoinstantautomat #fujifilm #instax #lomography #lomoinstant #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #summer #grilling #dinner #passthecobbler #bowtietuesday

203/365 Surprise visit to the Goeller house this afternoon. As always, delicious food, warm conversations and lots of cackling/laughter (it's a Goeller thing...😆😂). I guess after a decade and some change of knowing them, dinners like these sort of feel like family meals - and I'm always glad for the invite. @cat_mum2 is in the photo doing work on the ivories. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini7s #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #monochrome #bw #monochromatic #dinner #summer #youngchang #ohheywhatsupdogg
200/365!!!!!! Out of the darkness, light has emerged!! A gigantic THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make taking a photo today (and keeping the challenge going) a possibility! I had three different people offer their cameras, and randomly a coworker brought one into the office! (And a special shoutout to @howfry for going through the extra leg work to get me one, only to not need it - I so appreciated your generosity and graciousness!) Well, today is day 200, and even though I had no idea how to use the camera, this is still a special shot for me - both because of the adversity in making it as well as the shadows of the men that are pictured. I'm grateful for these guys (Brandon S., Brandon R., and Chuck T.) and the role they've played in my life. They're honest, authentic, and have some majors struggles, but they're all dudes who are but a shadow of what they used to be - because they've been redeemed by Christ and are continually being transformed by the Gospel. I'm certainly going to miss this group getting together, but it was good to spend one last night with you all. Until next time fellas. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini7s #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #summer #shadows #hope #wheresjosh #newcameraisonitsway
199/365 I don't think failing will ever be easy, but sharing that failure on social media feels really odd. Today my camera broke - it had some "error" on the back screen which caused the lens not to function correctly, and due to that, no photo could be taken. What does this mean for my year long challenge..?! I really don't know at this point. Getting a new camera could take a couple days so we'll see what shakes out. Either way I'm left with two thoughts: 1)if anyone owns an instant camera that takes Fujifilm Instax Mini film, can I borrow it for a couple days? 2)It's a dark day in the instax world for this photographer. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #blackout #needhelpasap #noshakeneeded @fujifilm_instax_northamerica @fujifilm_northamerica
197/365 I think we both genuinely had as much fun as is pictured, mainly because we were taking one of the goofiest photos ever - out in a storm, getting drenched, but laying on the hood of my car just to smile and get the photo! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #summerstorm #summer #rain #shemustbeakeeper #dashesnotslashes #tootired
196/365 After over a year of planning, we finally had dinner together! Good thing the staff at Taqueria Moroleon knows how to handle a big rowdy group like us.... Missed everyone who couldn't join tonight too! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #dinner #sundayafternoonfun #summer #juansrestaurant
193/365 Frenchfries and flights to Cali. Good things seem to take place when I visit that McDonalds (minus the food I ingested). That might sound odd - because really a restaurant can't make things happen - but tonight was the third time I've sat in a booth at that particular Mickey D's and planned a climbing/hiking trip. Hey there @micahmalinics , looks like I'm coming to see you and the wild mountains to the north! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #mcdonalds #frenchfries #summer #roadtrip #wanderlust #GLOONJ
192/365 This has been Ginny's element for the past few years: in her house with the teddy bears and the TV. The TV isn't pictured, but the teddy bears sure are (not to mention a blurry Ginny who wasn't too keen on getting a picture today, so she kind of jerked her head when she saw I had the camera aimed at her). I'm not quite sure why teddy bears were of such interest to her later in life, but this has been a familiar scene to the entire Miller family through the years - a picture of their old home, teddy bears lining the couch and Nana sitting there to welcome her guests. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #grandma #grandmother #nanashouse #summer #family
190/365 Work, prep a lesson, take a 15min nap, then head to Lancaster city for time with the CARE group; it seemed like a pretty good Monday to me! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #6thwardcaregroup #churchfam #lancaster #lancastercity @mattysmiller @kgood21 @tklehman @rindy_roo12 @tori_stoltzfus
189/365 Reppin' the Gap Dutch-Way location at the company picnic. We were a little outnumbered, but our frisbee game was stronnng! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #summer #dutchway #companypicnic #reubensdrill
188/365 Spent the afternoon doing a little climbing out at the river; such a peaceful place in the summer. In the photo Dave Good is leading "Mental As Anything" (5.9+) with our group watching from the ground. #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #rockclimbing #sportclimbing #safeharbor #safeharborclimbing #summer #imtheone #despacito #mattysclubmix
187/365 I thought I was going to mow tonight, but a summer storm stopped me in my tracks. Thankfully there was a great sunset with clouds after the stormed passed! #instaxchallenge365 #fujifilminstax #instaxmini90 #fujifilm #instax #filmisnotdead #photoaday #365project #instantfilm #summer #sunset #summerstorm #clouds
