Confessions of a former instagram addict!

In 2010 when Instagram was one of the fledgling companies offering photo-sharing via iPhones and smartphones generally, I jumped onboard. Like so many others, I thought that I might to gain some traction in the online arm of the photo world. How naive. In retrospect I had been using several platforms to post Phone camera… Continue reading Confessions of a former instagram addict!
