I kind of owe this post to my buddy Aidan (writer/author/mama to three girls). For months, she would tell me she was in loveloveLOVE with Instagram. You know, the app that allows you to create cool photos you take on your phone and then post them for fellow Instagram peeps to see...and you can tweet them and post them to Facebook, all at the same time.
I was pretty reluctant, as Aidan is a great photographer, and I just thought, "Well, what am I going to take pics of anyway?" But I gave it a shot (no pun intended)...and now, yes, I am in loveloveLOVE with Instagram too.
It really makes sharing little bits of my day supereasy. Point, click, make it look jazzy and then add a caption. Done and done. It's obviously great to share photos of the kiddo or cool things I spot roaming the city. And the great part is, you can pick and choose how much you share, where you share it, and which pics you pass along.
Even Kiddo has gotten into it. She knows we can take a picture and then "add the stuff to it"...meaning add a frame and cool coloring or switch it to black and white, what have you. All pretty fun for us to do together. I have to admit, she's got a pretty good eye...check out this shot she took and we created together:
And I nabbed this one on the subway:
Are you on Instagram? Do you take pictures with your phone?
