Surviving Mexico on Instagram

Did you know that for the past few years I’ve been posting the natural landscapes and colors of central Mexico on Instagram?  Really.  I have nearly 600 pictures uploaded to the site.

Recently I ordered prints of most of those snapshots and sent them to my mother to enjoy.  She doesn’t have an Instagram account.  She told me enjoy them she did!

I know the picture quality isn’t the best.  I’m using my phone after all and I am by no means a professional photographer. I did purchase my latest cell phone because of its improved quality photographs (it’s a Polaroid phone) But mostly, it helps that Mexico is breathtakingly beautiful.

I take pictures of things that catch my eye, which are not necessarily things that are commonly considered attractive.  For instance, I took a picture of this hillside because it looked like an alligator to me.

If you notice, there is not one single picture of me at Surviving Mexico on Instagram. Nope, I’m not a Selfie girl. Instead, what you will see, is Mexico through my eyes. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

    I’m not familiar with Polaroid phones, but if it operates on Android, I have a great free app. It’s called “open camera,” and allows you to make adjustments for light, shutter speed, white balance,etc., just like a good quality point & shoot camera. You just need to remember to take your photos through the app, not your phone’s native camera. Give it a try – it’s free! If you don’t like it, just uninstall.

    There is so much beauty all around us. It’s hard NOT to become a photographer while living in Mexico.
