For the love of Instagram

Like many people with an interest in photography and an iPhone, I have a bit of a love affair with Instagram.  The combination of easy photo editing and easy socialising is a great combination - especially when you're walking around with such a good camera in your pocket 24/7.  Of course, Instagram has had a tendency recently to become overrun with 'celebrities' getting thousands of likes for very average photos and soft porn but it is still possible to avoid such nonsense and find a great number of very normal people across the world taking and sharing some very cool and innovative photos.

The issue of editing photos is an interesting one, as I've never been one to overly doctor my images.  However, the fun thing about Instagram is that pretty much EVERY image is edited to some degree and everyone knows it, so its a chance to have a bit of fun and create some photo based art without feeling like you're conning anyone.

So, as its not too easy to see Instagram images on the web, I thought I'd post a selection of my favourite Instagram images here, in no particular order.
