A few weeks ago I picked up a Fuji Instax Wide 300 instant camera from Photojojo. I have a few vintage Polaroid cameras, and love playing around with them, but oftentimes would get inconsistent results. So I thought I’d give a newer version of an instant-print camera a try.

Soon after, Brian and I traveled to Hawaii and I decided to take the camera along on the trip. It’s large, but pretty light-weight, so it wasn’t much of a burden have in my camera-bag. And then I had an idea: I would photograph a scene with the Fuji, wait a few minutes for it to develop, and then hold up the print and photograph it in my hand so that it was somehow aligned with the original scene. The first few turned out nicely, so I kept at it!

So far, all of my “nicolesygram” images take place in Hawaii, but I expect this to be a regular thing. I’ll be traveling to Thailand next month and plan on bringing it along for the ride, and I’m sure you’ll see some “nicolesygrams” in Portland, too. :)
