I joined Instagram a year ago when I got my iPhone (What, my true love and I have only been together that long?) and I never looked back. My very first Instagram was a cat photo, obviously. I took a little holiday time to review and go through all of my photos from the past year and I wanted to share some of the unsung heros of my Instagram feed that never made it around to the blog. These aren’t the most liked, or the most commented, or the most artistic, or have the best composition: these are just a few favorites that made me stop and smile as I scrolled through and felt a little pang of nostalgia for the moment that was captured. Feel free to click any of the photos and give ’em a heart for old times sake. Oy 2012, here’s to 2013. (In no particular order…)
My top 5 unsung snapshots of 2012 in Instagram
This was the morning after I gave my three weeks notice. Life was good, I was wearing multiple neons and patterns: the N train was on time.
Taken while on vacation in Iowa: this is my mothers cat Helen, taking a cat nap on a cat blanket. I won the Internet that day.
In celebration of the ‘Rooms being on the Tonys we all got together and ate tiny foods apparently: in an apartment decorated by my friends granny chic landlord/roommate.
I don’t remember taking this photo: a great night was had by all. Darn you Long Island City with your hip bars and easy proximity to public transportation.
Not my outfit though. My personal favorite outfit was the one I wore to my current job interview, but this is the best ‘gram. Hand-holding-man-friend looks like a damn JCrew ad: not bad for a boy from Queens.
What were your favorite Instagrams of the year? Share links in the comments, it’s fun!
