daily photogram

When Claude Chappe invented the visual, non-electric telegraph in 1794, I wonder if he ever even dreamed of where we'd one day be on the front of viewable messages. 

Now, thanks to the creators of Instagram, we have an online photo-sharing service at our fingertips. And as of yesterday, only two and a half years after its inception, Instagram announced 100 million active users!

I love a nice handwritten postcard and a well-thought-out blog post, but it's really quite exciting to have a way to send an instant photogram--a simple square look at life. I'm a believer in the theory that the best camera is the one you have with you. Many times, this is the camera in my phone. It keeps me looking, thinking and creating daily. And sometimes it just works as a visual journal as well.

If you'd like to follow along on this journey and process, visit my Instagram page. I'd love to get to know ya!
