#Chicago: Stylish strangers. On my way out of Starbucks, feeling jealous that my coffee-break-mate @cmykchicago is in NYC and I’m not. :)

Instagram Weekend Hashtag Challenge  |  #WHPfirstphotoredo

On October 29th, 2010, I posted my first photo to Instagram. I actually had downloaded the app a couple weeks prior but didn’t really get the point: why would I want other people to see pictures I take with my phone? Well in those two weeks of just having an account, I gained a few random followers, so I figured might as well give them something to look at. As I was on my way to work and waiting for the train, I took a picture of my view and applied my then favorite, now no longer, filter Gotham. And low and behold - people started liking and commenting… Chicagoans from the same neighborhood, people from across the states with the same interests, foreigners from around the world who loved my city. I checked out their streams, got inspired to take more photos, learned about places I’ve never been, and gained a few friends along the way. Social media at it’s finest. Thanks to Instagram, I became reacquainted with an art that I once loved but had forgotten about and am given a great outlet to grow some of my photographic skills.

Did you all have a great weekend? We’d love to see your photos, so share them with us by using our hashtag, #igerschicago!

TODAY IS THE DAY! #igerschicago this is @relaxocat on behalf of the entire IGers Chicago team, we look forward to meeting everyone!
🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻🔻
▪️Meet us and @ChiArchitecure PROMTLY at 11am in the Great Hall of Union Station. Please be sure to pick up a name-tag from @relaxocat, @mcquake01 or @elbow_macaroni! Tags have a secret purpose so don’t lose yours! Meet @city_in_a_garden, @mollypg, or @cmykchicago for other goodies!
▪️We’re all excited about today’s #WWIM10_CHICAGO festivities, and I know some of you are worried about the weather. Fear not, over the last 3+ years we’ve seen you all in rain, snow, and subzero degree temperatures, so today will be a piece o’ cake. We’ll be inside most of the time, and the @ChicagoWaterTaxi has interior space. Dress warmly and bring an umbrella.
▪️$2 cash and a 15 minute ride gets us over to our next destination via the Chicago Water Taxi! If you wander from the group, be sure to meet us by 12:15 at the Chicago Water Taxi stop along the river, beside Union Station. Look for their signs along the riverfront.
▪️We’ll land near Michigan Ave. and take a short walk over to @SPACEbyDoejo where we’ll mingle & warm up with some hot @BowTruss coffee!
▪️Due to the weather, we will NOT be accessing the roof of SPACE, but we’re hoping to be invited back during a sunny day!
▪️After we’re all warmed up, we’ll head out by invitation of @ChooseChicago and @RedMoonTheater to the Great Chicago Fire Festival @ChicagoFireFest taking place along the river. We’ll conclude our instameet at the Neighborhood Bazaar!
