Before Instagram became a steaming pile of marketing bile and got infected with cheating insta-fame “influencers”, it was fun and simple. This was back in 2011 when I first started, which was a VERY different time. It’s what kept me going out and shooting more and what first got me looking at my city in a different way, mostly up. Now, I try to push myself to get out and shoot something other than food. It’s difficult not to criticize myself for going out and adding more to the architectural photo cliches that flood social media, but I just remember… I’ll get fat if I just sit around taking pictures of food.
