I like to take pictures, but I am by no means a professional. I like to photograph moments and things to help me tell a story. It's also a sort of meditation practice. It helps me train my eyes to see things I normally wouldn't pay attention too. Plus it's just dang fun.
Sometimes I do a daily photo journal. This year I'm taking a picture of myself everyday. You can see those here in my 365 Day Project.
I am just like you in that I love to Instagram
All the other photos end up in my Flickr feed.
