Instagram: My New Love

by Stacey

I think about my relationship with the internet nearly every day. I wonder if I spend too much time in this virtual world, missing out perhaps on what is going on in the real one.

Lately, though, I have found one place on-line that makes me consistently happy.

Instagram.

Every time I visit Instagram, I smile.

There is a lot to love on Instagram. What I am loving the most right now, though are daily prompts. I follow daily prompts that inspire me to take simple pictures of our lives that I would not capture without this motivation.

If you are on Instagram please come visit me there and if not, I thought I would share some of my current favorites here.

 

1. My_365 which is self described as “an interactive photo-a-day challenge with an awesome community of creatives.”

Here are some of my favorite pictures that have been inspired by My_365 daily prompts.

2.Susannah Conway’s August Break. Susannah describes her project this way, “This is a community project that has no real rules –  the idea is to simply take a photograph every day for the whole of August. That’s it. Pause, look around you and shoot what you see. Live inside each moment. Pay attention to what’s there.”

Here are a few of my favorite pictures so far this August.

  1. I love instagram too! (Definitely my preferred way to waste time on social media.) I haven’t participated in any of these prompts, but maybe I will now!
