Instagram Inspiration

Being a bit old-fashioned I’m not very much into social media. I left Facebook some
years ago: too much private information about people I hardly knew (ex colleagues,
old class-mates, friends of friends) and too much advertising.
Well, when I settled down in the mountains my daughters convinced me to join
Instagram to stay in touch with them and with the friends I had left behind after
all my moves. Working with Instagram actually also brought me back to photography,
a hobby since my early teenage years. Mind you, always with extremely basic equipment:
first small automatic cameras, nowadays my cell phone. Too impatient for an SLR camera!
During these two years on Instagram I’ve gotten wonderful response from my audience,
and I think I’ve developed as a photographer too.
However, what keeps surprising me is the “human side” to Instagram. I’ve made “real life”
friends with people here in the area, and I also have a very inspirational contact with Instagrammers that live too far away to meet in person, but with whom there’s a really
nice exchange. They truly widen my horizon – for poetry, other countries and cultures, for
fairies, art and much more.
The simple Instagram format suits me well: a beautiful or interesting picture and only
very little text. And yet sometimes you get this nice, personal touch that cheers up
even the greyest of days.
