Have I mentioned that I love Instagram? I really do. In seconds, you can see falling snow in St. Petersburg, Russia, a sunset in Indonesia and a cool vintage Fiat on a London street. There are some incredible photographers there and I enjoy seeing how they adapt to the square format. Some put up photos taken with “real” cameras, but most use a smart phone. I mostly use my iPhone and occasionally, the iPad.
Anyway, there’s a group on Instagram called “Nothing is Ordinary,” and they ask for photos fitting a different theme each week. Last Friday the theme was “mint.” I have a vintage teacup and saucer in that hue, so I brewed a cup of tea, added a slice of lemon and took a few shots. This is the one I submitted to #MINTFRIDAY_NIO:
To my surprise, it was selected, along with three others in a lovely grid:
The administrator of the group did such a nice job combining photos, didn’t she? I really enjoyed being a part of it.
OK, great weekend, everyone!
I love Instagram too, for very much the same reasons. I may have to go check out “Nothing is Oridinary” because it looks fantastic from what I can tell!
The thing I like the most about Nothing is Ordinary is getting to look at some really great photos. Enjoy!
What an honor to have your shot selected !
It was a nice little boost. 🙂
I’m not surprised that yours was selected – you have the ‘eye’
Thanks, MB. I try. 🙂
I agree — that collage is lovely — as is your photo.
I haven’t yet gotten hooked on Instagram. I’m not good at photography, but I’ve been interested in learning more about Instagram. I know many people really enjoy it.
Thanks, Jackie. I think your photos are definitely good enough. It is just so fun to see shots from all around the world.
I love the collage and your photo. They go together so well. I’m not surprised thye chose yours.
I will have to check out Instagram.
I’ve just discovered a wonderful instagram account by an Australian family restoring a gorgeous château in France. Will share it next week.
Great. I’m looking forward to that.
