Back in November my hip, young niece told me I had to start a gallery on Instagam. I did and then I panicked – I had no idea what I wanted to put in it.  I didn’t want to post personal stuff – my life isn’t that interesting. I did want it to hold together in some way photographically but I wasn’t sure how. So it sat there empty until I decided to shoot the same scene every morning and see what came of it.

I had a few ‘conditions’ for taking on a new Social Media site.
1. It had to be fun  2. It couldn’t take longer than the time it takes to drink my morning coffee  3. I wouldn’t leave my backyard. I happen to be blessed in several ways – I love coffee, I’m fairly competent at operating my Samsung Galaxy S4 and my backyard has unrestricted coastal views over tidal marsh.

When I started with Instagram, I was shooting with my phone camera and doing some rudimentary processing. In December I bought a new camera, the Olympus OMD EM1, which has wifi capabilities. This, combined with of a few phone apps like SnapSeed, PhotoShopExpress and SquareDroid – is the perfect combination for an easy, fun filled morning photo shoot!

Thanks for taking a look and if you like,  follow me on Instagram!

    • Hi Lianne ~ thanks for the RB :-) Instagram is mobil. By that, I mean that images are taken, processed and uploaded from your phone be it an i-phone or android (and a tablet I suppose). It’s meant to be ‘instant’ thus the name ‘instagram’. It’s a visual site – as you can see from my screen-shot. Clicking on the Instagram link I provided, will take you to my entire gallery but I can’t upload to that gallery from my computer. Hope this helps with your on-going SM immersion – lol!


    • Elisabeth, I am so grateful to you for introducing me to Instagram, this gallery would not exist if it weren’t for you! I hope you know that every image in this gallery represents my gratitude & love for you ~ here’s to sunrise and you!!
