I love Instagram. As far as social media goes, I'm pretty sure it's my favorite. (Shhhh... don't tell Facebook.)
You all know Instagram by now, right? It's a FREE app that you can download--on either an iPhone or a Droid now--and you upload photos (usually pretty random ones) to your feed. You can run different vintage effects on them to make them look more interesting.
I've been using Instagram ever since I got my iPhone, so I've been posting some of my Instagram photos to Twitter and Facebook for months now. You've even seen them here on the blog.
Here are a few recent ones:
Lately, I've been thinking about how I want to do a little project with Instagram. I'll often see these "Photo a Day" things circulating around on there, but I was thinking of something a little different.
I want to capture a day in my life via Instagram. To take photos of every single thing I do all day would be... well, ridiculous. But my goal is to pick a day (probably on a weekend--much more fun) and take a photo every hour.
Except when I'm sleeping. I'm not that dedicated.
When I succeed, I'll post all of the pics here on my blog. Sounds fun, but it could end up being supremely boring. Only time will tell.
Does anyone else want to participate with me? If so, pick a day (I'm picking Sunday). Start Instagramming when you wake up, and continue by taking and posting a photo every hour. Compile them all in a blog post or a Flickr album or something and come back to share the link here on Heather Drive on Monday. It's a fun way for me to get to know all of you a little bit, and hey, you can even get to know a little bit about each other, if you're so inclined.
Have a lovely, photogenic weekend. :)
