I have Instagram now. It’s my joy and my bane.
Now in my head I have this dialogue going: “Oh this is the perfect moment. Do I take a picture? Do I savor the moment? Do I share it with the whole world?”
So I try to choose my pictures wisely. To share enough, but not too much. And to not let taking the photos get in the way of what the photos are of.
It’s been fun to share little pieces of what brings me joy, or what I’m up to, etc.
Also, because I’m going to be away from my family and friends here in Texas for the good part of a year, sharing my life with them is important to me.
It’s said that the best camera is the one that you have with you. My iTouch is almost always in my pocket, and it’s made possible many of the photos I’ve taken recently. So Instagram, you’re troublesome, but thank you.
