For better or for worse, I’m should admit that Instagram was integral to my summer holidays. Not only did it allow me to utterly show buy viagra now online off the fun I was having abroad but it also gave me the opportunity to experience what I could do with an unnecessary number of apps on my iPhone.
That said, it also gave me carte blanche to spy on others. Who looks great in a bikini? Who THINKS they look great in bikini? And is the grass greener/sun hotter on friends’ beaches?
Back in the London rain, I realise that all this sounds a little ridiculous. But when you’re laid back (on a deck chair), flicking between Instagram snaps – I can assure you that it feels perfectly sane.
But, as I flicked, I did wonder where these photos, some of which are breathtakingly beautiful*, will end up. Would they just live trapped in the ‘Instagram grid’? And so, when I was introduced to the company SnapBox, which recently launched in the UK, I was keen to try out their digital photography service. Setting two of my favourite #summermemories photos free, I zapped them over to SnapBox (by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org), and, as quick as a flash, received a preview of the image, chose the size of my canvas and waited (only 5 days!) for these stunningly high-quality framed images to arrive.
And now a chance for YOU to set one of your images free – FOR FREE!
