I use Instagram in waves. Like a tsunami, more exactly. I barge in out of nowhere, leave a mess and then disappear like I had nothing to do with it. I post pictures in big batches always when I’m travelling somewhere. Sitting on public transport is boring. I scroll through the feed always when I’m on the phone with my parents. Shoot me, but my parents bore me too. They have a stream-of-consciousness approach to conversation which doesn’t particularly grab my attention. Also, it is not uncommon for them to rant for an hour—a social call with my father today, 53.16 mins. So, out of nowhere, here comes nothing. I mean, a few of my recent Instagram snaps. (Note how they are not square but iconoclastically round.)

    1. I love the blue nail polish too! Not a colour I’d normally buy, but I did and it turned out lovely 😀

    I finally dropped my Instagram account, yesterday. Decided that I don’t take any really good pictures with my telephone, and since I seldom travel, except for riding along to the grocery with Al and getting to the mall for a haircut… ::sigh::

    1. Actually, the same is true for me: I rarely travel and I don’t take good pictures, but that can’t stop me from having an Instagram account 🙂

  3. Your pictures are so pretty it makes instagram sound tempting! I never jumped on the train, but I did recently obtain a phone that has a MUCH higher quality camera than the one I had previously, so… perhaps. I like the idea of recording my experiences with pictures.

    1. Instagram is fun and you don’t need to take good photos or photos of interesting things either. There are very powerful editing options and the filters offered can transform a boring snap into a work of art! Thank you for your kind words, and do give Instagram a try! (And let me know if you do so I could follow you!)
