I don’t know what I’m enjoying more – taking photos with the Instax Mini 8 or taking photos of the Instax photos. Finding the doors also makes me happy and seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they see the photos is just such a nice feeling.

When I first started thinking about doing the project I had a vague memory of my parents’ old Instamatic camera – and a few photos from my childhood. Then I got the Instax Mini 8 and it just gelled. The camera attracts attention and I get to take unique photos.

First there was the mosque in Midrand…

Then there was a wonderful pink door at Sherbet Angel Spa.

This was followed by 2 doors from Limpopo – Big Baobab Pub door and green door from the Pioneer House.

…and this was followed by the door of the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria.

I think I have finally mastered the Instax Mini 8 camera 🙂

I am going into Joburg city soon to capture some of the historic doors that make up this vibrant city. It is going to be epic!
