Just as I did when Pinterest came out all hot and heavy on the scene, I resisted joining Instagram*. Who needs it? thought I. Who needs yet another way to obsess over acquiring Friends and Followers – to connect socially – to share more? Not me, no way. So it was only a matter of time, right? Caving in, I recently added Instagram to my iPhone and true to probably every other Instagram user, I immediately starting snapping everything that moved and also everything that didn’t move. Much to my surprise, my not-so-high-quality iPhone photos looked…really cool. I share a few below (and one above).
Incidentally, I also came late – very late – to the Mac party. A couple of days ago, my hard-working HP laptop died an unceremonious death. Stuttering, freezing, faltering, its hard disk had apparently suffered irreparable damage from too many trips through airports; it finally balked at being crammed into overhead bins and possibly revolted over having to store too many food photos for the blog. Like a person dashing out of a burning house, I grabbed what files I could and then retreated. To the Apple Store. I’ve been toying with the idea of becoming a Mac owner for years. Now seemed like the perfect time to jump in.
*If you are an Android user, I recommend Vignette. It has way more tweaking options than does Instagram. I’m hoping to see Vignette create an app for the iPhone.
