Autumn Obsessed

Normandy autumn leaves

When our friends left to go back to the US in mid October they left something behind as a gift...an iPhone 4! 

I've never owned a smartphone before, but it sure as heck didn't take me long to dive right in to the wonderful world of Instagram. It has taken my obsession with capturing the light and colors of autumn to a whole new level. I'm having far too much fun!

I owe them. Big time.

Now THAT is a heck of a gift! And your photos are beautiful. We don't get autumn colors like that down here in the south so thank you so much for sharing your new toy with us.

Well, *someone* has been having a lot of fun with her new toy it looks like. :-) I have an iPhone 4 too - actually bought it when the iPhone 4s came out. Could not be bothered to "talk" to some machine named, of all things, SIRI :-) - Love that smart phone. I do so many things with it, and my favorite, like you, is to take pics with Instagram. Now I understand why I saw your name "pop up" on my Instagram account this week :-) Amuse-toi bien! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Beautiful! And, actually, I think it is your READERS who owe them :)

This is so funny! I just sent you a Twitter DM asking about how you got into Instagram -- obviously via a smartphone -- and then I scrolled down and saw the link to this post.

In other words, no need to answer my message! I'm sure you will LOVE Instagram...and already do!
