So goes the process of gathering my favorite 12 Instagram photographs at the end of every month. As with the previous one, I'll be candid to say that I'm completely out of content to share regarding the service and my extensive usage of it without sounding trite month after month.
The one issue I will bring up is of the all-powerful Hurricane Sandy and the devastating consequences of it's arrival. As with Hurricane Katrina back in 2005, I can tell you that it's a completely different surreal experience assessing what's transpired based off what's being shown to you on TV as oppose to witnessing the horrible effects of such a storm in person.
What makes the entire tragedy even more dreamlike is that I've been to places like Rockaway Beach and having quickly visited today, I had to close my eyes for a few seconds while standing in front of the Sand Bar reminiscing on how we were just frolicking over the summer like most families were not thinking that it would probably be the last time for a long time.
As much as the over usage of hashtags can become incessantly annoying at times, I must say that it's been an incredible attribute on Instagram to seamlessly navigate through other people's feed to see what they see being as how some are coming from actual residents or photographers who've ventured out to explore the scene.
I'm a huge fan of the Instagram Blog which I've been following lately even more because they do a tremendous work in publishing current news being capture through the eyes of people who are using the service to shed light on prevalent issues. So much is the case that Instagram has proven to me that it's become as dominant and influential as Twitter in terms of making us aware of events that we would have otherwise overlooked.
