Instant Instagram Art

Ok. It's eleven o'clock at night and I realized I miss my blog! I'm in bed and too tired to go to my laptop so I'll try a quick iPhone post about my favorite iPhone app: Instagram.

Have you tried it yet? It's a photography social media app that lets you take pictures, modify them with filters and frames, and share them with your followers.

I've been using it for a couple months and absolutely love it for several reasons.

First, it lets me make art in an instant. Second, it lets me share my art with others easily. And third, through it I am learning a lot about how I see the world.

Here's a selection of some of the photos I've taken and posted. I've learned that I look for patterns and compositions in unexpected places. I love to look for beauty in odd little corners of the world.

I'm especially inspired by gritty urban scenes, which is funny because I live in such a rural area. Parking garages are some of my favorite places to look for compositions. I think it's because they are so graphic, with such strong lines and shapes.

I'm kimberly_paints and you can see my work on the app. Just download the app and join in the instant art fun. I follow everyone that follows me. Hope to see you there!
