Weekend Wildlife

chillwildlife2

Thanks for all the support and the funny photos you’ve been sending me! @chillwildlife Instagram is 3 weeks old but it already has more than 5,000 followers! I have to admit uploading photos on there is the highlight of my day because animals are the best. If you have chill animal photos use #chillwildlife on Instagram, I’d love to see them.

Have a chill weekend everyone!

Instagram of the Day: @ChillWildlife

chillwildlife-instagram

Today I’m headed to Costa Rica for a little vacation, and so as a sort of “vacation project” I’ve started a new Instagram account @chillwildlife for my true passion, chill photos of animals. Follow it if you want at least one laugh per day (and if that’s all you want you’re setting the bar quite low, my friend).

Now I’m feeling weird about featuring my own account – actually, no I’m not. I’ve only been working on @chillwildlife for two days and it’s already my favourite thing to work on. I laughed pretty hard all day yesterday just thinking about it. If you want to submit funny images to it please @ me or use #chillwildlife but please for the love of God no meme pics with text on them. Thanks!

There will continue to be new posts on Booooooom while I’m away, and I’ll be back in a week or so.

This wins two awards: Video of the Day and Best of Instagram. I can’t believe I didn’t know about Adam Carpenter’s Instagram @adamscarpenters until now – hands down my new favourite person to follow! The video he just made for Shake It Little Tina’s “Low Cut Connie” is officially my way of life, and I would like to request that it be projected onto the ceiling above my casket at my wake, thank you.

We’ve been getting so many great submissions to our Instagram project this month. In case you missed it, it’s called “Portraits and Songs” and the instructions are simple: Share a portrait you took of someone, pair it with a song title/artist, and tag it #portraitsandsongs. I will be re-gramming submissions to @booooooom all month long!

Best of Instagram: Week 22

Here’s this week’s Best of Instagram post, a selection of 5 photographers worth following. I’m making a conscious effort here to highlight work that challenges or completely disregards what is usually popular on Instagram.

Guest posters often take over the @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. Please, for the love of God, do not tag or @ me in a million photos in a row (one is good enough).

You can, and should, also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!
