Over the summer I downloaded the Instagram app for my iPhone, an app that I would never be without now.
Instagram is a revelation to my photo taking. I have often thought I took a pretty good pic but I've never been able to afford a fancy camera and I don't have the knowledge to produce photos with filters and effects.
Instagram has helped me to do that and it's so easy to do. I now have a whole album of instagram pics. Here's a selection of my favourites.
I'm partial to a lovely sunset...
|Oldham town centre|
|The hills above Oldham|
|Outside our house|
|Manorbier beach, Pembrokshire|
...and I like a good beach shot too.
|Driftwood at Newgale Beach|
Beverages must ALWAYS be included.
|No description needed here|
|Anyone for tea?|
The architecture of Wembley Stadium always makes for a good photo.
Rainbows are always inspirational
|A rainbow in a cloud - beautiful|
And then there are some random pictures...
|Sonny Boy Blue|
|The canal at Uppermill|
