I is for Instagram

This week I'm joining in Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday meme.
I've just started back at work after a lovely three week summer break.
During this time I rediscovered my Instagram account.
I'd forgotten how much I enjoy using it - Instagram makes me view the world through a different lens (so to speak!)
When taking an Instagram photo I focus on details, colours and specifics in a way that I don't when taking photos with our regular camera.
(Except for the times I go on a flower photo frenzy with the flower zoom!)
I also love the special effects options that turn my ordinary photos into something a little bit special!


Leichhardt Swimming Pool, Sydney...reading after doing my laps!



The next 4 were taken on my morning walk along Mills Beach, Mornington, Victoria.

Home again - Sydney sunset (last night).

P.S. Although this may read like a blatant brand endorsement, it's not!
I've received no payment, reward or encouragement to post this post.
I just wanted to share some of my holiday pics and join a meme at the same time :-)

  5. Have seen some instagram photos before, and they were all too dark to my taste, but these I like, so I'm going to investigate some:)

  12. That top reading photo with the hunky guy in the background made me laugh.
