You can imagine how the noise of the train began to crescendo as it drew near. For The Daily Post’s Weekly Prompt: Crescendo.
A little over a month ago, I decided that Offshoots Photography should join the world of Instagram. I have a personal account already for friends and family pics, but I wanted a place to share portraits as I one day build up the business side of Offshoots.
In the meantime, I am using it to share creative works on the go and as a chance to use some of the awesome mobile photo-editing apps out there. Moreover, like WordPress, it is a great way to connect with other photographers and artists in order to learn from and enjoy their work, as well as to connect with potential clients in my area. I am also using it as a medium to share long forgotten images I may fine tune or completely revamp into photo art.
I am having a lot of fun with it because I can sit anywhere with my phone and create versus being tied to my laptop. Also, pulling up old images brings back lots of good memories.
Do you have an Instagram account for your creative photography? If so, feel free to leave your @accountname or link in the comments.
We are in Gatlinburg, Tennessee right now on family vacation and believe it or not, while in America’s heartland, one of the first places we chose to eat dinner was a full-on Mexican cantina called, “No Way Jose.” Since I am prone to saying this phrase to my children a lot, I thought it was quite appropriate to include them in some of the photos. 😉
The fam and I went to Costco last weekend. For those of you who don’t know what Costco is, it is a huge warehouse with lots of stuff, everything from electronics to clothing to groceries to you name it.
How it differs from your typical mega-super store is that you can get mass quantities for a greatly reduced price. Think toilet paper. 😀
We also got a fabulous deal on my new laptop last month. This week our purchase included a 100-count box of granola bars and a six-pack of deodorant.
We grabbed some lunch from the snack bar to keep up our energy for the long check out lines.
I took all of these photos with my smart phone, which doesn’t have a great camera, but I am snap-happy, and also taking the advice of some fellow photographers, who told me recently to just “point and click.” 🙂
I took this image a year or two ago of my daughter and have been holding on to it to post for the “perfect challenge.” Today, I thought, Who cares! What am I waiting for? Life is too short and we are never guaranteed tomorrow.
