My Trip to Vienna: An Instax Travel Diary

14

I recently took a trip to Vienna to visit my friends at the Lomography office. I decided to take along the trusty "Instax Cheki 55i":http://www.lomography.com/instant/cameras/cheki55 camera and keep a journal of my trip. The credit card-sized photos are perfectly portable, and each memory is instantly captured and shared in real-time. Each photo has space for a description, and now the pictures can tell a complete story.

Thank you to everyone at the Vienna office for your incredible hospitality and for making this such a memorable trip!

I hope you enjoy.
