I’m really enjoying playing with Instagram, and thought I’d bring it home to Sophie’s World more. So here’s a new little series, a regular one this time, of popular Instagrams. Now, I could create posts with my personal favourite Instagram photos, but I’d much rather showcase the ones my friends like. Each month, we’ll pop in the 10 (or so) of the best-liked photos in our Instagram gallery the preceding month, all shot through the lens of an iPhone5.
Now, best liked is a relative term, depending, amongst other things, on timing. I’ve heard there are analytical tools (an app?) where you can see when your Insta-friends are online and likely to see your photo, but for now, it simply is what it is. Without further ado, here are Sophie’s World’s most popular ‘grams in September 2014.
1. Gdansk, Poland
Just a wee bit of Gdansk’s pretty Old Town
