Fo(u)r the Birds

Again from my Instagram feed – a quad of four favorite shots from Australia. For some reason my best photos always seem to have birds in them…

We recently had the pleasure of taking a wonderful Christmas vacation to Australia. Thousands of photos. Literally. Here are  just two of the many I’ve posted to Instagram:


Photography/Instagram

December 23, 2011

Soon after I wrote my last post about photography, I discovered Instagram. I am now completely addicted.

Instagram is Twitter, but with photos.

It’s amazing. Thousands of people submitting thousands of photos every minute. But it’s not overwhelming – you follow the people you want and their uploads get added to your Feed. Sound familiar? The interface is just like Facebook/Twitter, and is perfect for the iPhone. Want to try looking around a little? The Popular page and searchable hashtags make it very manageable.

And the photos? Wow. Astonishing. Take them with your iPhone or import them from photos uploaded from any camera. People are talented, you know? Amazingly talented. There’s some really stunning photography on here. I have ridiculed Twitter in the past, but with Instagram the social network revolution has hooked me. There’s a reason Apple recently named Instagram its 2011 App of the Year. Genius.

I’ve only uploaded/shared a few photos so far, but I’ll soon be uploading daily. A few my my recent uploads are below. If you’re on Instagram follow me – username is robblanum. See you there!
