A little while ago I downloaded instagram, a free iphone app for taking, formatting and sharing photographs. I thought it would be yet another free app that would take up space on my phone but which I would rarely use. Needless to say that hasn’t been the case. Instagram tags along with my iphone, making visual creative expression accessible to me at all times. The additional bonus is the sharing, the comments you receive, the new connections, and being exposed to amazing creativity and talent from around the world.
It has also encouraged me to pay attention to details at yet another level. I challenge myself every day on our usual walk to find a new perspective, a new visual expression that I could share with my instagram community. This attention has brought along with it much delight.
Witnessing the explosion of so much creativity on instagram has been an inspiring and humbling experience.
