I’ve become a big Instagram fan over the past year or so. It was only a year ago that I got my first smartphone — up until then, I’d been traveling without any phone at all, let alone one that you could take photographs with.
I still despise talking on the phone, a remnant from my law years, but I have to say that my phone is a godsend for some things I need to do for my blog and work now. Part of that is Instagram, but that part doesn’t feel like work at all. It is just simply fun, and the photo quality on these phones these days.
In the past, I’ve done a few year-end wrap up posts that I liked, with a humorous edge that I need to get back to. 2011 saw Good People, Bad People, Dead People. And last year was You Should, You Shouldn’t, and It Must Go Away.
This year, I am ending the year on vacation. A fairly complete vacation. Sri Lanka for a bit, then the Philippines. So instead of doing up a big end-of-year post… I’m going to go scuba diving.
In the meantime, I thought I’d end the year with some of my favorite Instagram photographs from the past three or so months. As you can tell, I’m trying to do more black and white stuff lately, but the sunsets here deserve full color. Please feel free to click through any of these and follow my Instagram feed, if you aren’t already. I’d certainly appreciate it.
