I’m old-fashioned. I’m also a techy. And I’ve found Instagram to be the perfect blend of the two. Here’s what I mean:
I’m a mild geek married to an ultra-geeky web designer living in the 21st century. So I’m doomed to be a techy. And quite frankly I love being a techno-goon (please don’t google that phrase lest you discover that I’m also quite a weirdo). So how do I claim to be equally appreciative of old-fashioned charms? Simple. I’m easily delighted and inspired by everyday simplicity - the kind that’s been around for ages. Blonde-haired little girls playing with invisible playmates. Furry friends sticking their wet noses into the wind. Summertime all wrapped up in a sunflower. Those simple pleasures are wonderful, they’re no different than they were years ago, and they’re just the moments of time I love to snatch with my lens. And since I’m a techy, my iPhone is always handy to do just that.
If you share my love of the beauty of the everyday, you might enjoy coming along for the ride on Instagram. Hang on…it’s a wonderful life.
