I love taking photographs and if you follow me on Twitter you will see that my feed is peppered with photographs published through Instagram, a really fun iPhone app.
“Snap a photo with your iPhone, choose a filter to transform the look and feel, send to Facebook, Twitter or Flickr – it’s all as easy as pie. It’s photo sharing, reinvented.”
As much as I would love to carry my big camera around all the time, it’s not always practical or convenient and it’s fun to shoot in a different way. When I use my phone all I can do is point and shoot, no other options are available to me.
Instagram photos are shared in a simple photo stream for friends to see and you can follow your friends’ photos too. My Instagram name is @_marina, a name given to me by a little girl when I was taking her photo. Instagram seemed the perfect place to adopt a different persona and the photos here are different from my blog photos. They are recording moments from my personal life, capturing things I see that interest me and also creating images that have special meaning, all shared in an instant.
You are welcome to follow me on Instagram and as with all the best things in life, Instagram is free x
