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.

The real Seattle
This short blog post brought to you by the Yeah, It Rains Here but Really I’m Posting This to Keep Others from Falling in Love with Seattle So They Stay Away Association.
Trying to organize my photos, so here’s a post of landscapes I’ve taken in the past year. You can also view the set on Flickr.
Make no mistake about it – the Pacific Northwest of the US has long been a frontrunner in the green movement. Then again, this isn’t a huge surprise. The area features majestic mountain ranges, lush forests and continually evolving eco-friendly towns and cities. Many residents make sustainability a priority, and the following demonstrates five ways the Pacific Northwest keeps pushing green forward… To keep reading, just follow this link to Sustainablog.
Went out looking for a spot the other night to experiment taking photos of traffic trails. I’d always been fascinated by the view of Seattle from the Lakeview Boulevard East overpass, so I thought it would be a decent location to setup. These types of photos have always entertained me, so I’m happy I’ve taught myself how to capture them (not that it’s overly difficult or anything). Still lots to improve upon.
