Instagram and me

WORDMEDIACO founder and director David Boyes loves photo-sharing app Instagram, primarily as a hobby and occasionally for business purposes.

He writes: “I have a longstanding love of photography, whether recreational for my own pleasure or viewing the works of professionals. Despite all the advances in picture-taking, I am fascinated more by black and white images than by colour ones. All these shots were taken by me, only ever on an iPhone 4s. My pictures are available in my gallery at:”
