As a consequence I know I haven’t really had the time to write posts here as usual in recent weeks. But no writer should ever cut him/herself off entirely. I always find some time (mornings especially) to read blogs and check social media – especially Instagram.

I like Instagram because it’s fun. And it’s a necessary distraction at times. I can’t get over the stuff some people post.

A “professional” photographer I am not. And I have no overarching “theme” to my Instagram. The photo service for me is about sharing quirky things others might relate to, perhaps to make them smile, and maybe to distract THEM for a few moments, too.

Or I share photos of landscapes:

Or – for some reason – signage:

Or of famous landmarks:

Or I have a laugh about going through photo memories and our changing technology:

Or – even if I don’t look like Rob Lowe – I decide to attempt a selfie:

Just a few social media thoughts. For myself, it’s back to “1794” once more. Have a good day, wherever you are. ๐Ÿ™‚
