I have been hooked on taking photos daily with Instagram ever since I got the 4s 2 weeks ago.

Did some blog visiting this evening and realised that there are fellow mommy bloggers who are also having tremendous fun snapping photos with the app, namely, PC, Evelyn and Janie.

I am quite thrilled by the resolution of the photos that are taken from the phone and I have so much fun with this app. If you are on Instagram and want to join in the fun of participating in the photo a day meme, just add the hash tags of #photoaday right behind your photo description.

I didn’t participate in this meme, as I take too many photos a day with Instagram :)

Instagram is a fabulous way to train your eye for photo-taking and improve photo composition. For more tips on taking better photos with Instagram, Evelyn has featured a really useful post on it.

So what are the kind of photos that I take? Here’s my Instagram photos for the past 2 weeks.


















It is usually the boy, his stuff, nature, food and occasionally things that I encounter daily which I think are visually interesting for me.

If you don’t post all your Instagram photos to Facebook, and wonder how you might be able to retrieve all your Instagram feed of photos, there is a site online that helps you to retrieve all the photos. Do check out Webstagram for all your photos.

Oh, and do add me as a friend on Instagram, my profile is @catchfortywinks. Would really love to see and LIKE or Comment on your photos too 😉

  1. Your pictures rock! And thanks for sharing Webstagram (how come I don’t about this?!;p) and linking up. Btw, I notice that Janice and you using the same template, how or where to get the template of 5 (pix) in a frame?

    I guess my life very much tied up with your ladies (and all the kids) now, but I love how sometime I get to ease my self by reading some sharing or seeing some beautiful pictures. Will share my Instagram, after I do some cleanup in my accoutnt ;).

  2. Hey Rachel, thanks for the links! :) I also like your shoe pics, tried doing those before but I have really wrinkly feet! Instagram really is loads of fun; I’ve had an account for a long time but didn’t add anyone… it’s nice to discover community there as well!

  9. You’ve got a talent there! :) The IG app shows us that we don’t necessarily need an expensive camera to take nice photos – it’s about composition, finding an interesting angle, and developing a creative eye – and I see that in what you captured and I like them!

    Thanks Ruth. I am still learning the finer points of composition and I still make major mistakes from time to time. Dying to explore a photography class to improve my existing skills of photography though.
