Captured (Part II)
One thing I really love about Instagram is that you are able to see so much more than you would be able to on a regular day. You can take little visual trip to a city or visit the countryside, you can oversee the skyline at night or watch the waves crash during a sunny day, you can get to know someone’s favourite coffeeshop or take a walk in the woods. Seeing all those different kind of things is first of all a lovely pastime and more often than not, it feels like taking a little break. It also is a good mean to discover new places, meals…well, things in general. And maybe we should go even further than that: it is nourishing our minds.
When I came back from a holiday in September, I left the most beautiful place behind me. A place where the sky was so blue, that it almost seemed unreal. Coming back to a city which was basically grey and to the prospect of chilly temperatures, was not particularly enticing. Luckily there were a few sunny days left and we still managed to sit outside, to take long strolls and enjoy the golden hues of autumn. That helped a lot, for sure. Surprisingly taking a look at some IG feeds turned out to be a good cure as well. Looking at the place you seem to know oh so well through the eyes of others means rediscovering details you missed and with that, its beauty.
