Photos by @carissa_burton
Everybody is on their phone. Thousands of people everyday wear out their thumbs scrolling through photos, deciding which ones to post on Instagram. It’s so easy to do whether you’re a photographer or not; just point, shoot, choose a filter and post whatever you created. From funny duck face selfies, to breathtaking landscapes, to gritty city streets. Some use it as visual journal giving glimpses of their lives, while others have taken it to another level by creating works of art. All of us at Ruby Hornet are fans of the social media platform and decided to do a weekly series highlighting people whose Instagrams stand above the rest. Let us know in the comments section if you’d like to be featured, or let us know about some other cool Instagrams. Be sure to follow Ruby Hornet Instagram, too.
This week’s featured Instagram comes from @carissa_burton. There’s just something about New York and the environment that provides so many photo opportunities, which is a reason I like this gallery. You get a mix of the nitty gritty of New York, and she also is able to capture its beauty through her lens. I really enjoy this Instagram account for the mix of photos that she takes as she hits the streets of NY. Take a look at a few of her shots, and be sure to head on over to her Instagram for more great photos.
