So I did it. Yet another silly, fun, addictive “social media” outlet. All my friends are doing it, so ….
I got myself a moniker. Opened an account. Took photos. Applied filters. And posted. Here I am, joining the tom-foolery. With my not-phone. My glorified solitaire game (true story: Big Dude got a little exasperated with me using up his phone battery playing solitaire. So he found me a broken Droid on Ebay. Fixed it. And told me to play solitaire on that. Not kidding. And I’ve been happily wasting time playing solitaire on it ever since). My sometime dinky camera. My trail tracker. My new Instagram toy. But never my phone.
I must admit. Those Instagram filters are quick, painless and fun. And just like any new photographer who applies way too much contrast to every single photo, I think I’m going to be a little out of control with tilt shift for awhile. It’s just the way of things.
Anywhoo, we’ll see how long I stick it out with IG. I’m way less married to my not-phone than I am to my computer, but gosh those tilt shift filters are fun… Feel free to look me up and say "hi"; I'm shortonwords there, too.
