What Instagram taught me about my city

Scotland is a very Instagrammable place. Looking at my everyday life through the lens of a camera helps me to appreciate the subtleties – and the not-so-subtleties; I’m looking at you, castle – that I have grown used to.
Thanks to Sara‘s free 7-Day Insta-Retreat, I’ve been more mindful about my photography – posting only the best and upping my Insta-game. Appreciating my surroundings was an extra bonus.

    Xandra, your blog is so great. Your colorful, vibrant, not-black-and-white minimalism is refreshing and delightful. Can I ask when the next Letters from Jane Austen will be available?
