May in an Instagram

Instagram is, hands down, my favorite social media creation ever. One might even say – rather uncharitably, I would argue – that I am ever so slightly obsessed with it.

In recent months, however, I haven’t been feeling very Instagram-inspired. Well, to be clear, I was still inspired by other people’s photographs on Instagram, but I didn’t feel I was snapping many Instagram-worthy moments of my own. The last few months of the school year were crazy busy, and it seemed like I was spending much more time in the library or hunched over my desk than I was doing anything remotely worth photographing.

Fast forward to this summer – now, I’m in NYC, and there are things to photograph everywhere. I might be stating the obvious, but this city is so inspiring, and I’m on an Instagram kick once again. Here are some highlights from May in NYC:
