Sure, Instagram had a rough end to 2012 with those TOS changes and subsequent retractions.
But the mobile app has also been one of my favorite discoveries of 2012 (other photography app suggestions: Pixlromatic, Camera+, Diptic, Snapseed, Flickr). While I can’t realistically bring my DSLR camera everywhere, I always have my iPhone with me. What’s more is that the Instagram community is an awesome place. Interacting with other mobile photographers through Instagramers Seattle and Josh Johnson’s #jj forums takes Instagram to a different level entirely. Here are some of my favorite personal mobile shots from 2012.
This is my second post in a series on my recent trip to Peru. In my first post, I talked about hiking Huayna Picchu at Machu Picchu. Stay tuned for thoughts on Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Lima, and more.
When my girlfriend and I were planning our trip to Peru, we had a big decision to make: Spend our final three days at Lake Titicaca or spend them in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. We chose the latter.
Why? We thought it might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and the reviews of the Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion lodge were stellar. I’m hoping to go into more detail about the wonderful lodge, its employees and our other excursions in the Amazon in another post. But for now, I wanted to detail our experiences on a day-hike inside Tambopata National Reserve to Lake Sandoval.
That awkward moment when you win fantasy because you started Golden Tate.
