I also took some photos on my camera as you can see below

I need you to tell me whether I should be emailing myself and then uploading and then posting the Instagram photos here on my blog or whether that is stupid

 photo IMG_2356_zps7f8202fe.jpg
You tell me and I promise to do what you say

 photo IMG_2361_zpsf5fcee72.jpg

  1. Blog are frozen pictures for days in your camera and it’s pain to load them into the blog,but it’s visually nicer and the slices are served larger!
    Instagram are ‘real time’ stamp size lil’ snaps served fresh daily (like in McDonald’s)…. Can we enjoy ‘Gourmet pictures’ once a week and ‘junk snaps’ everyday ?(or the way around) = ¥€$ !

  2. Please don’t stop this blog.
    It is how you reach the largest most diverse group of people.
    I have an i phone 5 and will gladly follow you there too.
    Blog for reflection instagram for stream of consciousness.
    I like it when you process and we get to see it.

  3. BLOG
    Danish Pavillion party coat, most beautiful.
    last day just suffering suffering i cant emphasize that aspect enough.
    most hilarious! sorry.

    Also, wanted to say you are a great photographer. have been following on Instagram, but love the images on a bigger screen.
    Thank You!

  4. really dont want to install instagram on my phone to see your stuff.
    i follow this blog religiously
    i like the intern idea

  5. Long time blog stalker, first time commenter (?) Please keep the blog, I really like it, way better than Instagram. Maybe is better for you, but maybe the blog is better for most others

  6. you should continue your blog as well as use instagram but dont give away all your photos on instagram. You should create a “pheed” channel. its a great social netwrking app/site that allows you to copyright photos, take up to 4 hours of video, you can upload like a hundred photos for one post. its great with great people and you would fit right in plus everyone on their needs to enjoy your insight and love for art
