Tags I’ve never been one for tag following–see aforementioned pickiness–purely because you cannot control the content you’re seeing, leading to a flood of posts from the same five profiles who use the same five semi-relevant tags on every one of their posts.

In all honestly, I have been slacking in the content production game. My photography framing skills are little to none and I don’t do much worthy of sharing on the ‘gram.

Naturally, I’ve also read an exorbitant number… Continue reading Welcome Back (to you & me!)
