    This was a wel-done vidblog and I appreciate it. Although I’ve been making images for decades and using my iPhone as a camera for years, I only recently discovered Instagram and am learning my way around it. So, all the help I can get is a good thing!

    Instagram is my favorite social network. I love how others see their world. Thanks for doing this video.
