I'm No Photographer

I'll be the first to admit that my strongest gift, ok, I have no gift really of it at all--I am awful at taking pictures. I'm so not good that I'm not even cool enough to call them PHOTOS. I still call them pictures! BUT for the last year I really have been trying; it's OK I've accepted it's not one of my stronger suits. 

My husband gave me his old iphone 3 and I am using it for the CAMERA, and INSTAGRAM. Instagram and I have a love affair I swear. It is a match made in HEAVEN. I LOVE it! It has been so good to me......turning my mediocre pictures into PHOTOS I actually WANT to share. Photos I can be proud of! I just adore Insta gram and what it can do for a picture. I'm in love with all things old--so the way Insta gram looks, agrees with me so well. SO does the way it WORKS! It's super easy.

Below are a slew of pictures, photos rather, LOL.......that I'm super proud of and wanted to share with you all. I hope you like them.
