Up till now, picking up a Fuji X-Series camera — in the literal sense — usually meant making your way to the local camera store… assuming it’s still in business.

There’s an intensity on Hawkeye Huey‘s face as he looks out from Salvation Mountain in California, Fujifilm Instax 210 in hand, goggles askew on his forehead, eyes searching the horizon for the next exposure.
