Everyone needs a bit of inspiration and mine came from my friend Emma. Her and her boyfriend, Peter, have started a new blog Snapshots from 2012 and it sums them up completely – witty, intelligent, quirky and creative. Their photos are very fun and it’s nice to see a different perspective of London and of someone that you know well.
So here’s a pic from me – it’s the view from our window at work.
I’m addicted to Instagram. The world looks better through Instagram. I look better through Instagram. You can give your photo any feel that you like – want a bit more mystery (who’s that girl?), or the vintage feel (1920s yes please) or perhaps a little more warmth (anything for a bit more sunshine). Instagram can do, well, pretty much everything.
I had a lot of fun this week but what I struggled with the most was actually including myself in the pictures. Yes, this week was supposed to be about vanity and ME but all I was taking photos of was the scenery. Once I addressed my inner critic there was no going back – as you’ve probably seen from the pictures in my flickr feed. They are all me. me. me.
While after this week I’ll cut back on taking photos of myself everywhere I’ll remember that being in a photo or two isn’t the worst thing in the world. And if nothing else my mum likes to see them.
