the summer of instagram


These are some of the pictures I have taken over the last few weeks with my iPhone, because while I dearly love my camera, this little gadget can do a pretty good job of catching those fun summer moments too. As you can see from my mosaic, summer for me so far would appear to be all about eating yummy food, cuddling cute pets and going places. All sounds like fun to me! All these pictures have been shared with my friends on Instagram, which is both a camera app and a social network. The magic of Instagram is that as well as processing your pictures, it's also a lovely place to connect with others to see how they've been enjoying their summer too, one picture at a time and all shared instantly. If you haven't already downloaded Instagram (for iPhone only, I'm afraid), you should give it a try...and it's still square format. Yay! If you're also using Instagram, why not leave your user name/handle in the comments, so we can connect up and share the summer fun?

Wow, those are all so great! I think the fair one at the bottom is my fave, but then I love the shoe one... I also LOVE the baby hand/light shot... I just love them all.
