[dropcap]I[/dropcap]nstagram is really bothering me at the moment. Not for the usual reasons: the algorithm hasn’t seemed to affect me, I’m really not bothered by spam comments or whatever, I actually really like Insta-stories. I’m a bit pissed off at Instagram because I’ve run out of steam. I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing anymore, and that’s bloody annoying.
Thankfully, Marrakech helped out a little. A change of scenery, a change of subject matter, and a change of general colour schemes and vibes. Overall, it was pretty successful for the whole Instagram thing, and continues to be. Don’t think I’m going to be calming down on the Marrakech photos any time soon. I have a lot to post.
Aside from the Moroccan posts, I’ve run out of juice. I’m bored of taking photos of brown Durham, and of the rubbish lighting in my uni room, and of taking photos of cups of tea because that’s literally all I do with my life, between writing essays. It’s not a very inspiring time. I’m not fussed with taking photos of makeup, mainly because my lighting is just so bad, and yeah. Basically I’m just lacking any sort of creativity.
In truth, I’m bored. I want to do exciting, fun things, and take nice photos of it. Durham this year has been such a letdown after Paris last year. In Paris there was always something new to do and see, but after almost four years in Durham, I’m pretty bored of the same cafés and places. Maybe I should head to Newcastle a bit more. It’s just finding the time along side work and revision and other commitments.
Lol, this sounds like I hate Durham. I love Durham. Durham is beautiful. This is like that time I said I didn’t like Paris, all over again. To clarify, I love both Durham and Paris. Love them.
On top of having really uninspiring subject matter, I can’t seem to edit right. The filters I’ve been using forever suddenly look wrong, my photo quality is rubbish, and I just can’t. I legit can’t take or edit photos to save my life. How can I screw up taking a photo of a cup of tea? Stressssss!
It was nice to have a Marrakech break. It was perfect to just be somewhere completely different. Now I’m back home, however, and I’m a little bit anxious for when the Marrakech photos run out and I’m back to cups of tea and brown buildings.
Does anyone have any tips on how to keep my photos fresh?
