Photos, Instagrams and Mosaic Monday

My friend Amisha from Gorgeous and Fun Things, introduced me to Instagram.  You can follow people's photos from all over the world if you choose.

I woke Samantha up from a nap to capture this one.

Instagram is an App that enables your iphone to take photos and use the coolest enhancements.

Here are Instagram layouts, especially designed for Instagram size photos.  Instagram Albumn is another app, which allows you to share your photoss and send them to flickr, facebook and other places.

Amisha, also told me about Tumbler, which gives me a blog to add my photos, and pin things if I would like.

I also love Pinterest.  I have so many pins, have a peek of my pretty Pinterest pins of inspiration.

Here is sweet Cocoa.  She hates having her picture taken.  She always blinks when I try to take her photo when she sees my camera.  I caught her off-guard with my cell phone.

Photography today has so many options.  No matter what our sense of design or camera choice..there's a place for us.

Today is Mosaic Monday, and if you love photography Mary from Little Red House has so many wonderful participants sharing their photos and mosaics.

This song was introduced to me by the lovely Anita.  Her blog Castles, Crowns and Cottages is always filled with gorgeous photos.

Happy photography

What fun you are having with your iPhone. I don't have one and am holding out! Think I spend too much time on the internet and would be even more with an iPhone! I'll have to stick with the 5 cameras I have (5???!!!!!). I still haven't learned everything I need to about them. Beautiful, fun post, Karen. Thank you!

Oh my heavens! Are you speaking English? Then I must have just been born yesterday because this is like Greek to me. Ackkk. I don't need one more thing to get me sidetracked so off I go...

Lovely images! Beautiful thoughts!

Beautiful, Karen, but your posts always are. Loved every snapshot. Just lovely.

It's been a rough summer, but I think I'm starting to see daylight which is a good thing. Hope yours has been better and that you've gotten to enjoy the New England weather. It's been beastly hot in Florida, but I honestly think it is hotter in other places in the South and across the country. At least we have a breeze off the Atlantic for which I am SO grateful.

Love you...


Sheila :-)

Hi Karen! Thank you for this round up on the Instagram apps – I'm just getting started and afraid it will be another addiction!

Thanks so much also for your visit and comment – it was great to hear from you and I really appreciate it.

Still catching up from being away, so it's taken me awhile to answer.

Wishing you a great week!
