Snapshots

"A good snapshot stops a moment from running away"

The iPhone and the app, Instagram, have made it easier to stop those moments from running away


Until recently, I had been using Instagram primarily as a camera...taking snapshots here and there, experimenting with their digital filters.  Even using it for my blog header


But, I was slow to realize that it's more than just a utility...it's a social media hub for inspiration.  I've started following some of the same individuals I follow in the blogosphere and on Pinterest...getting another peek into their creative worlds

Social Print Studio has developed Instagrid...a web gallery of your Instagram photos.  Those not using Instagram can subscribe and follow users' photos via this site

Follow me here on Instagrid or via Instagram...user name jcasewebb


And in this age of social media, if all of this "sharing" isn't enough...Social Print Studio even offers SuperEgo

"It grabs all the Facebook photos tagged with your name, and displays them gloriously on your own personal superego page.  It's a fun (& critical?) acknowledgement of social media's tendency to push us all towards self-obsession"
-from their website

Perhaps all of this technology is creating super-egos...these clever apps are definitely creating the super-wealthy.  Read more about that here

Hope you catch some snapshots before they run away...whether you share them or not

Lovely snaps, Jennifer! And how interesting to know that Eudora Welty was a photographer, too! I had no idea. I need to get myself "connected" to Instagram to see what you and others are sharing!
Happy Weekend, XO
