What’s become sort of a tradition, I’m starting coverage of my most recent trip via my Instagrams. As I organize, post-process and otherwise figure out what I took with my other cameras, the Instagrams are available, ready for consumption. I guess that’s the benefit of curating and post-processing on the fly. All photographs were captured and processed on an iPhone 5S.
My Instagrams have become my visual diary, always with me on my phone. They’ve become highlights of the more interesting parts of my life. I try to capture mundane, everyday events but inevitably the trips away from home become overweighted. I’ve learned that, when done correctly, these squares become little jewels. Markers that unequally divide up my life, used in the future to remember the past.
No great works of art here. As expected, there are tropical sunsets with palm tree silhouettes, glimpses of tasty food and other bits I care to remember. Ironically, even though I consider Instagram to be a casual social platform, I’ve become fairly selective. Perhaps if the iPhone was my only camera, I would post more. But as you expect, I have many other cameras that need care and feeding.
