Are you playing on Instagram?
I know what you are thinking… No more social media… not another application to worry about or think about or squeeze into the day… And I agree… there is so much, often too much… but I have to admit that Instagram has got me… it’s just a snap.. a few filters.. a hash tag if you so desire and that’s it. The places you have been and what you have seen are preserved in thumbnails … a record, a visual diary. When I look at my shots above I am immediately transported… to Saint Rémy de Provence… to London… to the English countryside… and I am reminded in little ways of what has been going on in life… There is no rhyme nor reason to my shots… no themes.. no message.. just a dose of the pretty.
Not only can you see what is happening in your friends lives but also you can follow people from all over the world… I enjoy the work of several photographers and in the space of a few minutes I have been transported to Africa, South America… Australia, Japan and the United States… to places I might otherwise never get to see.
If you would like to play along download the app onto your phone… If you would like to see what I am up to… click here… and follow me… I would love to see you there… xv
