If you follow me on Twitter, you will have noticed over the last year or so that I have been suffering from a massive case of Instagram envy. My smart phone was so unsmart it was not compatible with Instagram.
So, I watched as you all uploaded amazingly wonderful photos that you'd taken with Instagram and I sat and sighed.
Sometimes I even threw a little virtual hissy fit and stamped my virtual feet in temper because I couldn't join in the fun.
Jump forward a year and I have joined the Instagram masses.
Now my virtual feet stamp in frustration.
I'm having a love/hate relationship with it.
|Bradley Wiggins making history....I loved this photo of him and his son doing a lap of honour at the end of The Tour de France|
|My toes went skinny dipping|
|Picking, podding and cooking broad beans that we grew|
|One of the perks of going to work at 5.30am is you get to see amazing things without anyone else around.|
|I actually started riding my bike to work....at 5.15am!|
|Making cheese and ham muffins|
|The finished muffins....didn't turn out that bad even though I added 700ml of milk rather than 200ml and then had to add more flour in complete guesstimation|
|Summer on a plate|
|S'cuse the chips.......but hey there's a flippin dinosaur trying to eat my breakfast!!|
|Crafting in the sun with my pal|
|Crafting in the sun with my pal UNDER this!|
|Bumper haul of potatoes.....it was hot work digging these up!|
OK, here's the thing..........quite often I just cannot upload my pictures......even when I have full wifi strength.
Why oh why can't they link this to the internet so that you can view your pictures and friends pictures and likes on your computer?
Why can't I use the pictures I like....for instance.....my sister has uploaded a couple photos of me, which for once are semi decent, and I'd like to use one as my profile pic?
I though as well, that there were going to be loads of filter and frame options, I was mildly surprised to find it's very limited.
And lastly, everytime I have a failed upload why do you have to add another photo to my phones gallery....it means I end up with numerous pics of the same image.
I'm sure you all laughing your socks off at me now, saying she's so silly, why doesn't she just do this...........
If any of you Instagram Legends want to impart any of your Instagram Wisdom please please please feel free to comment leaving me it.
That said, when it's uploading properly it is fun, and I'm enjoying finding people to follow. It's making me into a camera freak though, I'm suddenly taking really random pictures all the time.
Right you lot, I want to follow more people so let me know how I can find you and I'll come and follow.
Have a great day
