Photos of the Day, and Instagram

The photo of the day–one of them, anyway–was taken by me, in November 2003 when I was in London on business. Which reminds me–things have been dull lately, I could use some more business trips like that one. It is a beautiful photo, I think, taken on the bank of the Thames. The lighting is entirely fortuitous: I couldn’t do this on purpose in a million years. Click to enlarge:


I posted that photo on Instagram a little while ago, with #tbt–Throwback Thursday. If you are not on Instagram, you should consider it. Instagram is my favorite social media network. Not a lot of boring commentary or endless yammering, just pictures. You can follow people–like your siblings or, say, Bar Refaeli–or institutions, like the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the country of Australia, which has an awesome Instagram feed. If you are not familiar with Instagram, you may want to check it out. And you can follow me, if you want: johnhinderaker.

For those who want something a little more historically significant than my 2003 business trip to London, here is a shot of Mulberry Street, Manhattan, around the turn of the 20th century. Traffic hasn’t gotten much better since then, but probably no worse, either. Once again, click to enlarge:
