Sweet floral mosaic ~ Instagram style


Okay, I know Pioneer Woman is doing it, and Lisa Leonard is doing it too, but I really didn't pay much attention until my daughter mentioned it.

Instagram

And now I'm mildly addicted.





Above are a few images I've Instagrammed over the past couple days. It's just so much fun!

Unfortunately it's also an iTunes app so if you don't have an Apple product you're pretty much out of luck. At least for now anyways. Instagram is working on an app for Droids, as well as a desktop version.

The good news is that you don't have to have an app to see someones photos! Here is a link to my images, here are PW's images, and finally these are Lisa Leonards!


Linking up with Mary's Little Red House for Mosaic Monday

A visit to your blog is always a quiet, pleasant retreat! Beautiful!

dAwN said...

Very cool..

Not quite sure I understand Instagram...I did install it on my itouch..then what do I do with it?
Do you use photos you have taken with your camera or with the iphone?
then how do you get them in a mosaic like that?
Did i ask enough questions?

Carol said...

Great shots! Such pretty blooms, but those pups are adorable!

Dawn said...

So beautiful.....all your lovely shots put together!
I've never seen this before. Or if I have...not really understood how/what you do.
Thanks for sharing. I may try my "hand" at it.

Country Girl said...

They might be doing it too, but I love your images most of all. Plus, it's wonderful hearing the happy in your voice. Isn't it fun playing with something new? It's like having a new toy ~ !

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Beautiful pics! I love Instragram...is your app the same as Hipstamatic? My photos come out with cool effects but they are not as clear as yours. Maybe I need to see if there is an Instagram specific app :)

Vee said...

Oh good. I'm so glad that I can't do this. I do not need one more thing to become addicted to and I can tell from your wonderful pictures that I would get royally addicted for sure.

Char said...

i need to get on the instagram bandwagon - these are great

Naturegirl said...

Lynn said...

I like your photos the better than Lisa'a and PW's. Did I ever tell you I went to a book signing for PW when she was in Columbus. I bought the book and stood in line for hours and then finally gave up and went home since I had my grandpuppy for the weekend and wasn't looking forward to puppy accidents. The other girls I was with were there probably about 4 hours total and finally got their books signed.

These are great and beautiful pictures as always. I think I'm going to have to try this out for myself! x

Oh yes, I had found Instagram for my iPhone just a few weeks ago...from Ally over at From the Right Bank. It is so much fun!

Kerri said...

Nice captures :)

Ok. That's it. I'm officially downloading it and not putting it off anymore. lol

I don't have "i" anything! LOL!! Hopefully soon. Love the pics!

Anu@My Dream Canvas said...

This looks lovely. Hope to see you at My Dream Canvas! Have a great week ahead.

Carolynn said...

I still don't know what an instagram is....

I was, however, extremely relieved to find that it only worked with Apple products and that effectively put me out of the loop. Now I don't have to feel pressured to learn something else new at a time when I'm barely keeping up with the old stuff.

Like what you've done, though.

Carol Mattingly said...

Absolutely beautiful. I simply must look into this Instagram thing. Carol

Aleida said...

I've never heard of Instagram. Did it also provide the cool effects?

Mary Lou said...

Oh boy! You have me trying it now!
Two questions when you can.
Is Listagram the same as instagram and how did you get them onto your blog?
Love yours.

A New England Life said...

Hi Alaida, yes it did! I think there's over 12 different options when editing your photos. Here is a link to the actual app itself:

Wow, really cool. I love this. The pug made my day!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Thanks so much for stopping by recently!! I'll be scrolling around here on your gorgeous blog and discover more of New England! I was once very much into photography..., before digital..., painted black and white pictures. I'm so not up to date what's going on now, so it's great to learn a little here, haha. Beautiful photography!!!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

What a beautiful blog you have here! I'm so happy to have just come across it.

Gentle hugs...

Jesse said...

I'm addicted too! So much fun!

The Curious Cat said...

Is it sort of like flickr? I'm confused...looks pretty though! xxx

Jan's camera said...

Sharon, these photos are all so wonderful. I don't have an iPhone. Would it be wrong of me to get one just so that I can use Instagram?

Jan's camera said...

Hi again, how did you get that great depth-of-field with an iPhone? Is there a special app for that?

A New England Life said...

No, it would definitely not be wrong, Jan. LOL!

I confess I don't take many pictures with my iphone because I almost always have my camera with me. So for most of the photos in the mosaic I used regular photos I had taken with my camera. I emailed them to my iPad (or you could send them to your iPhone), saved them, and used them with the Instagram app.

Georgianna said...

Oh, I've resisted Instagram as I'm sure I would play too much but wow – I LOVE your mosaic! Fantastic images, Sharon. :) xo – g

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Hope you don't mind that I used you fabulous shot of your friend Ann here.

Hula Girl at Heart said...

Hmmm...I best not go anywhere near that. It looks addictive.

missing moments said...

I love instagram photos and yours particularly. Unfortunately, instagram is not yet available for droids, but soon, I hope. Beautiful images!
