Phodographer David Lee near Lake Kivu, Rwanda, March 2010

Travel blogger Dave of Go Backpacking took Foto and a little printer. He said “In my past travels, I’ve taken lots of photos of kids and adults alike, and have seen how much they enjoy seeing themselves in the display of my digital camera. I think it’s a great idea to be in a position to offer them a photo they can hold onto and I enjoyed the experience with Dog Meets World in Rwanda.

NEW Phodographer Dave Lee near Lake Kivu, Rwanda, March 2010

Dave Lee just returned from Rwanda after seeing the gorillas in the wild and trying out the new hand-held mini-printer for Dog Meets World. Foto, the dog, and the printer created a bit of a wild scene too and he retreated to the car to print out the kids’ pictures. See the parents studying these first pictures. Anyone can carry this small printer when space is ultra limited and have fun sharing photos in the field. Follow Dave’s adventures in Rwanda at GoBackpacking.com.
