life through a different filter

like many shutter-happy people, i've fallen into instagramming this summer. i love the colors, the filters, the tinge of age that makes the event look like a thing long past, and mostly, the instant gratification. (how did i survive before immediate photographic feedback?)

This might sound stupid, but I don't get how to use instagram. I want to use it to take pictures, but not to post on their site. You'll have to advise me when we see each other. Also, LOVE LOVE LOVE that bus. Anywhere around here?

i have to confess -- i'm kind of cheating at instagram for the moment. my brain can't handle any more social networking sites so i've made all my photos on the site private. but i will post them here!

Cool photos. I don't know what instagram is, and I think I don't want to know. Is it a time sink???

I'm intrigued by that Gaslight place. I'd like to go and have a little drink, but I'm concerned about the crime scene tape.

happy belated 4th to you too - and yes, thank you for your artwork and for gracing my blog yesterday :)

guess what one of my birthday wishes is - an iphone so I can start instagraming too :)

I LOVE your doodle recipe book - yum! When are we going to get more than just peeks :)

A toast to you and birthday greetings to your beautiful girly :)
