Instagram recently celebrated it’s 5th birthday and has managed to grow to over 400 million global users. I’m one of them and the app has become the most important social media channel to me.
Behind the beautiful pictures on Instagram there are wonderful people. Last weekend I got to meet some of the photographers I follow and got to know also many new faces as I attended the worldwide instameet. This was the 12th event and it was held in over 2600 different places at the same time.
This is the groupshot of us standing next to that epic tree silhouette by Julia Kivelä! I’m wawing in the picture 8th from the left.
Big thanks to Joonas Linkola for arranging this instameet!
