Instagram Vacation

SO I'M BACK FROM MY ONE MONTH VACATION AND IT WAS GREAT. SUCKS TO BE BACK IN RAINY MELBOURNE BUT IT'S BACK TO REALITY AND BACK TO THE GRIND, WHICH I'M EXCITED ABOUT. 

I TRAVELLED TO HONOLULU, SAN FRANCISCO, LAS VEGAS, NEW YORK, SHANGHAI, TOKYO & 7HRS TRANSIT IN KUALA LUMPUR. I SHOT ALOT LESS PHOTOS THAN I THOUGHT I WOULD, WHICH WAS ONLY ABOUT 6 ROLLS..SO ONE PER CITY. I REALISED THAT BECAUSE IT WAS PURELY A VACATION, I SPENT MOST OF MY TIME CHILLING WITH FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES JUST GOING WITH THE FLOW RATHER THAN CONSTANTLY SHOOTING EVERYTHING I SAW. IT WAS GOOD TO JUST SOAK UP SOME SCENES AND LET THEM BECOME INTIMATE MEMORIES UNRECORDED. THAT BEING SAID, I DID RECORD ALOT AND I'LL UPLOAD THEM IN THE COMING WEEK AS SOON AS I GET THEM DEVELOPED!

WHAT I DO HAVE FOR YOU IN THE MEANTIME IS ALL MY PHOTOS I SHOT ON MY IPHONE5 FOR INSTAGRAM. INSTAGRAM IS FUNNY TOPIC WITH A LOT OF PHOTOGRAPHERS WHICH I WON'T REALLY GET IT INTO.

 BUT MY OPINION ON INSTAGRAM IS THAT IT'S A GOOD PROMOTION TOOL, IT'S ALOT LESS SPAMMY THAN FACEBOOK AND IF YOU AREN'T FRONTING LIKE YOUR PHOTOS ARE ALL TAKEN ON YOUR PHONE (BUT REALLY AN SLR) THEN FUCK IT, IT'S FUN. PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CAMERA PHONES WITH OUR SHOTS AND APP EDITING IS PART OF THE INSTAGRAM ENJOYMENT. OUR MOBILE PHONE HAS TRULY BECOME THE CAMERA THAT IS ALWAYS ON US, SO IT'S ALWAYS THERE TO CAPTURE THOSE MOMENTS WE DON'T EXPECT. THAT'S THE TYPE OF STUFF I LOVE SEEING AND APPRECIATE ON INSTAGRAM. ANYWAY, THESE ARE SOME OF THE PHOTOS I TOOK FOR INSTAGRAM DURING MY TRIP. AND FOLLOW ME AT @THIRDCULTURE IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY...

CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER...
