pittindiefreak My friend @wesleygrim started this hashtag called #igrambecause. I absolutely loved the idea and I have found myself in the past few weeks wondering why exactly was I using Instagram. Well last night it finally came to me. .
Two things that I absolutely love in life are: 1. Meeting new people 2. Having new experiences. Instagram has offered me both. Take this picture for instance. I was surrounded by over 10 people who just a few months ago (and in some cases a few weeks ago) were complete strangers. And I was in an area of town that I never would have thought of visiting doing something (spinning wool) that I had never even heard of until Instagram. All of this is exactly what I thrive on so this is my #igrambecause friends. What's yours?
.
This photo was taken by someone who has blown my mind away with their talent; Chris @daitokei. If you are not following him then you are really missing out on some amazing work. I hate putting up photos of myself but this picture just blows my mind. I'm almost positive that my jaw was down to the ground watching this happen. I will never forget this night and thanks to all of you shared it with me.

pittindiefreak Had the opportunity to spin wool last night thanks to @beachvacation143 and @steelergrl_79. I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out considering I took the shot on my iPhone. But I think it's officially time to buy a camera... 1d

pittindiefreak One of my favorite things to do is to give tours to people who are new to Pittsburgh. So yesterday I spent the day with some people doing just that. This is @timbo_louer_photo. Tim just moved here one week ago from Syracuse, NY to study photography at the Art Institute. He is a self made man who owns his own photography company (you guessed it, Timbo Louer Photography). He has shot a few weddings before so if anyone is looking, this is your man! He also really loves EDM and would likely tear up your dance floor and who doesn't need an amazing dancing photographer at a wedding? (I don't know if the dancing part is true, I just felt it might be lol). Please give this talented man a big Pittsburgh welcome! 3d

pittindiefreak Had a nice turnout of close to 35 people for the #scg_sstrails Instameet yesterday! What I love most about these is the part of meeting people! I'm constantly fascinated by people! Take this guy for example, @mulrats. Ryan is new to Pittsburgh having somewhat recently moved here from a city that is considered up and coming and also a great place to live, Buffalo. He is a Graphic Designer who owns a shop where he sells the embroidery that he personally makes. He even runs contests on his page where you can win some of his work! He's one of those guys that you will see riding his bike all over the city (with or without hands as you can see in this photo) and what for me is maybe the most interesting part of him? He is a raccoon whisperer! (Check out his page to see what I'm talking about). It was great meeting you, Ryan! 4d
