I’ve wanted to blog all week, but “crazy-busy” wouldn’t let me, so after photographing flowers Thursday morning, I opened the Instagram app to post a photo with a few hashtags. Then, I remembered “stories.” I’d never posted a story before, but I discovered immediately that they are perfect for sharing “in the moment” photos or thoughts when a blog post is out of the question:
Like when you’re driving along and the flowers on the side of the road require some time with them.
Or when, at some point during the morning drive, you look up and the sky deserves more than a glance.
Or while you’re sitting in your car waiting for a meeting to start and you notice dogwood blossoms not too far from you, when everywhere else (as far as you know) the blossoms took leave weeks ago.
Moments like these often sit in my camera or on my phone unshared. There are thousands of them (literally). I’ll do better.
I plan to “flesh out” these particular experiences some time soon with more photos (and words), so stay tuned.
Enjoy your weekend!
