Social media is a fantastic way to share your experiences with your friends and family. It’s also a great way to romanticize moments. So here is a behind the scenes look of what was really happening behind these perfect Insta-moments:
Tony wasn’t home, so I had my phone on a tripod attached to the deck railing. There’s actually no coffee in the mug…
Tony held up traffic from both directions while taking this picture, as I sat in my car waiting until he gave the “OK” so I could quickly drive off.
I was sitting alone, adjusting my coffee approximately 8 times before it was in line with the buildings. It was cold by the time I drank it.
I went to Starbucks for the sole reason of taking this picture, and bought a coffee I don’t even like. Then put on a sweater and stood on our porch trying to get the perfect angle without a cat tail in it.
I was so drunk, there was a kid running in front of me trying to ruin the picture, and I still have no idea how also-drunk-Tony managed to capture this on an iPhone.
My entire family watched me carefully arrange these items on a pool floaty, and I wouldn’t let anyone outside for fear they would cast a shadow.
That’s a background into just some of the pictures I’ve taken. What have you done “for the gram”?
