Beyond the book...

Goodmorning fellow ArmChair BEA-ers!

I hope to read up today on all of your writing adventures outside of the book blogging world! Writing has definitely always been an interest of mine, but I have yet to really run with it. Maybe some of your posts will prove inspiring! Honestly, I think that if I had a hot pink old school typewriter at a pretty little nook in my house I would be MUCH more apt to write! Pretty little things inspire me....

...which leads me to my topic: beyond the blog.

Something that I have always been drawn to is photography. My mind seems to be wired to look for interesting images. I've had a beautiful Nikon DSLR for a few years now- but with the wonderful invention of good camera phones, instagram, and social media, I have been changing my photography style.  While I still look for beautiful images, I also photograph a lot of the daily bits and pieces of life. My instagram has become my new photo-journal. I am a bit obsessed with instagram- it is my visual representation of my daily goings-on. I imagine as time wears on, I will continue to incorporate more instagramed images on Little Bird Reads as well.
 Those of you with instagram accounts, I would LOVE you connect with you.  Click on my instagram icon (leads to my Gramfeed) and follow me- leave me a note and let me know who you are!


Here are a few of my favorites from recent weeks- these were all taken with  my camera phone... I'm at work, so I don't have access to my images I've taken with my Nikon.
Hope you like them!

  3. Gorgeous pictures! It's interesting how Instagram and the like are changing your style. I wasn't a big picture taker myself, before, but now I feel like taking pictures and sharing them. Then when I look back, it helps me remember those moments more than my random tweets do.

    Farley looks like he needs a big hug!
