my month with Instagram
I have just celebrated my first month of playing with Instagram. What a delightful social media platform that is - just seems lighter, natural, happy & engaging - with just a snap shot, apply an amazing filter effect & a comment. I was thrilled to discover by day 30 i had taken 150 photos & attracted 415 followers too, so friendly & supportive of a new player like me.
I have had one of the busiest days of the year today - half hour run, Farmer's Market, Little Athletics, Book Reading (with Mem Fox no less, more on that later, with an autographed giveaway), Puppy Shampoo & Blow Dry, taking twins to a Halloween party, hardware & grocery shopping . . . you can see why we had to skip an Engagement Party!! Now it's time to cuddle up with my husband & enjoy a movie.
Here are some of my favourite Instagram shots so far . . . ok, they are Instagram cliches . . .
the cute playful puppy . . .
what i ate for dinner. . .
a contented child . . .
market flowers . . .
pineapple themed decor . . .
the good/ simple/ natural/ good/ healthy life . . . my love for our chickens, their eggs & quirks. Like Trombone here, our Australian x Indian Game bird, who looks like a scary pterodactyl yet is the sweetest chicken ever!! Often my outdoors shots in full sun, i can't see what i'm shooting, so i hope for the best & check them indoors. I was so happy with this action shot while hand feeding her.
So there you go, i've had a smart phone & have been playing with Instagram for a whole month & i really love it, especially the cliche shots. Oh i didn't include any of the sky, shoes, cakes, car window, pedicure or fashion shopping cliche images here, but they're all on Instagram. It's such a fun place. So many great restaurant, shopping & hair tips too. I've found nieces & nephews on there, cousins, clients & celebrities too. Check out Posie Shoots, love Posie
