This Week on Instagram: 6/9/17

So I kind of liked posting my pictures in the order that I like, so I think I’ll just do that from now on.  After all, I don’t really care about the likes (and I shouldn’t), so why focus on that?

This first image was from our trip to Washington’s Palouse region.  Those beautiful rolling hills don’t get old, and they go on forever!

This Week on Instagram: 6/2/17

I’ll be honest – this post was scheduled about a week ahead of time.  Usually, I do these the day of, but I couldn’t be sure of my connectivity, and I wanted to make sure you still got a post.

This Week on Instagram: 5/26/17

I’m always amazed by the actual reactions each week to my photos versus my expectations.  Most of the time, the Instaverse simply doesn’t like the same pictures I do.  It gives me some very interesting insight to my photography.  Am I viewing a picture better than it actually is?  Or was it simply poor timing, poor hashtags, poor algorithm?  Who can know, for sure?

Either way, I’ll continue to put my photos out there.  These are the ones I like, at least.

This Week on Instagram: 4/14/17

My efforts on Instagram haven’t been as successful as I would have thought, so it appears I need to experiment a little differently.  No new inductees to the 100 Club.  We’ll see what next week reveals.

Once again, I was surprised this first image didn’t get more love.  I absolutely couldn’t get enough of Landscape Arch.  I didn’t initially have this picture in monochrome, but I kind of like how it turned out.
