I fall in love with people over instagram.
I know that social media feeds like instagram get a bad rap for selfie overload, for encouraging narcissism, or envy and depression thanks to such inaccurate presentations of people’s lives.
But you don’t have to follow that stuff. And, I like seeing the world through someone else’s eyes. It makes my days feel a little more kaleidescopic.
So, I’m excited about this new project for the Wellness Almanac – apart from getting our instagram back on, we’re kicking off with weekly guestagrammers – an approach of passing the lens back and forth that I hope will deepen our sense of appreciation and connectedness with the people living amongst us and around us.
I knew of Amie Le Blanc because of her gorgeous photos of the Pemberton Downtown Barn, and a DSLR photography class she was teaching at the Community Centre. So I reached out to her, to kick things off.
The returned-back-home local just happens to be a professional photographer with a Bachelor of Design, majoring in Photography and Diploma in Studio Art.
So the journey is in good hands.
