Instagram NJ and NYC Photowalk March 11th

Ok I am WAY behind on posting updates.  I've just been exhausted lately - so I am finally catching up on some things!

Over a year ago I downloaded a free App on my phone called Instagram.  It's amazing what the iPhone camera can do.  I don't know how many times I get asked if I took the picture with my digital SLR camera and I say 'nope - that was taken with the old trusty iPhone".  Along with downloading instagram - I've added a whole list of other photo editing apps.  I typically end up with my favorite camera + app but its' fun to see what you can do with the photos.

One of the other positives of sharing photos with folks is that I've managed to meet some great people along the way.  There are instagram groups all over the world!  One of the largest is in NYC but I also created a group for Northern New Jersey.  We had a our first photowalk on Sunday March 11th.  The NJ group was a small gathering (I'm blaming day light savings time and an early start time) but we then joined the folks for the InstagramNYC walk in Central Park which had over 100 people!

Below are some of the photos that were taken along the way!  Hope you enjoy!

On to Central Park - Street Performers

I'm going to go out on a limb and say you can take these signs down...

Love Central Park!

    Also your photos of NYC and NJ are just beautiful. I intend to be in NYC next year in May. I await a reply.
