Instagram, I freaking love you! It's true, I do! I knew about Instagram before I owned my beloved iPhone and wanted that app so bad that it was the first app I downloaded when I got my iPhone up and running. It's simple (and fun!) to use and connects you to a whole world of wannabe photographers from all over the wold and allows you to share beautiful photos with each other.. and this, I adore!
It's similar to other social media platforms in that you sign up, create an account and end up with friends or in this case 'followers'. It's easy to get addicted and is usually the reason behind my high phone bills. Oh dear.
I've also been known to dabble in and experience Instagram envy. That moment when someone, somewhere (for me, its usually someone from a lovely hot country like Australia) casually uploads a picture of their view from their workplace or home and I'm like "Dam, I want a beach right outside my door...not, er....rain!"
However in saying that, there is many an Instagrammer out there who appreciates a fine view of an Irish landscape on a day when the rain is lashing down and this service I'm happy to provide!
Below a few snapshots of my Instagram life lately and if like me, you're an avid Instagrammer, be sure to jump on the luckyrainbow follow wagon.
