Instagram It!

1 Aug

Back in December 2013 I opened an Instagram account for my blog.
It’s not every day I get inspired to write but, I do see things, daily, that catch my eyes and/or emotions and I try to capture them, as best as I can, in pictures.

As I said on my blog post from December, I think this is the magic of pictures. They show a piece of you because even when you’re not in the picture it is of something that “spoke” to you and Instagram lets you share it with everyone else. With this incredible social media tool we realize how some things are universally beautiful or appealing, how an inanimate object can turn into art immediately, how a flower, and it’s color, comes alive when in our routine life we might have just passed it by, and how marvelous and unique sunrises and sunsets are, even though they happen every day. We learn a little about each person by the style and subject of their photographs and when we find things in common we follow them, and see how we’re all so different but similar at the same time.

I invite you to follow my Instagram feed @throughapurplelens and see a little bit more of me. I will keep looking at yours and admiring how beautiful our world is.
