Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform. It can either be a passive social network where you post snapshots or behind-the-scenes pictures of your life or it can challenge, inspire and motivate you to work harder, whether that be on your photography, or, increasingly, as a form of motivation for others on a similar path as you.
I love Instagram because it’s a way to explore the world through other peoples eyes.
As the new year begins I want to share my most popular Instagram photos of 2014. Most of them surprised me – I mean, who’d have thought that a (very tasty) burger would be in the top 5?!
I hope you’ll join my travel adventures in 2015
and share your Instagram handles in the comments below so I can follow you!
The Most Popular Instagram Photos of 2014
Location: Times Square, New York
Story: Before January 2014, neither my Dad nor sister had ever encountered snow. After a quick visit to Sephora, we walked out into Times Square to the place covered in snow and more falling fast.
Location: Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka
Story: Escaping from my blogger friends I was travelling with, I was looking for different angles and playing with light to try to capture a different shot while visiting the Ancient City of Polonnaruwa in central Sri Lanka.
Location: Above Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Story: Flying home to Australia via. Dubai with Qantas I was able to capture this photo from the airplane window of the magnificent skyscrapers rising up out of the desert. I can’t wait to stop and experience the city myself!
Location: Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Story: I thought I’d found the bar with the best view of KL’s Petronas Towers when I dined at Marini’s on 57 but I was proven wrong when I was taken to the Sky Bar inside Trader’s Hotel. What a view…
Location: Dubai International Airport, United Arab Emirates
Story: I was surprised by how many people LOVE burger photos and my Shake Shack pitstop enroute to Paris proved well liked on Instagram. Delicious to eat AND photograph!
My Shack Burger picture, taken at the new Shake Shack Covent Gardens store, was also among my top Insta-pics.
