Instant gratification

Another hiatus, another excuse. Well, the same excuse. So, moving on, you may have noted the recent preponderance of square-format pictures on MyNewShy, a reflection of a predilection for Instagram where one can photograph, edit and post images using a mobile phone camera or similar.

I now have a large number of these and shall therefore be posting them, and future ones, on this photoblog. If you’d rather, you can access these directly from my Instagram account under the by-line calmgrove.

If not, I shall be scheduling a selection of Instagram posts, some recent but some from the archives, here — hopefully on a more regular basis. Soon I won’t have the same old excuse for the same old hiatus.
