Village of Kasol – Instagram Expat / Travel Photography Linkup


Welcome to our 3rd week of the NEW Instagram Expat / Travel Photography Linkup! The first week we had seven links and the second week we had four links. I hope these numbers improve! I am trying to be patient and give the linkup time to grow but if it doesn’t prosper soon I will need to discontinue it. The extra work of a photography linkup may not be worth the time and effort. I had a few blogging friends tell me that linkups are dying. I guess we will know soon enough! If you want the linkup to continue please share :-) On a positive note let’s move on to my favorite image from the last linkup…

Street Art in San Miguel De Allende - Photography Linkup

My favorite photo from last week’s linkup was Kasol, Himachal Pradesh, India by Instagrammer @eat_travel_live_repeat. The image made me want to visit some of the small villages of India. It reminds me of a time long ago when things were simpler and slower. Maybe it’s deceiving but a girl can dream!

Kasol has got a unique charm in itself, surrounded by greenery and mountains ,which keeps calling everyone back. Kasol is a quaint little hamlet in Himachal Pradesh, northern India.It is situated in Parvati Valley, on the banks of the Parvati River, on the way between Bhuntar to Manikaran. It is located 42 km east of Kullu at the height of 1640 meters.It is also known as Mini Israel and very popular with the bagpacking and hippie crowd. #EatTravelLiveRepeat #traveldiaries2016 #wanderlust #wraveler #justwravel #mountainlife #HimachalPradesh #himalayasarecalling #insta #indiaphotosociety #igs_asia #ig_masterpiece #igtravel #instatravel #followforfollow #naturephotography #kasol ️ #kheerganga #parvativalley #manali

Last week I was on vacation with my family and I shot mostly with my Sony Nex 3N and my Sony a77. I only have one Instagram that I want to share with you. I snapped it quickly on the way out of San Miguel De Allende. This is one of my favorite cities to visit in Mexico because of how pretty it is. This shot gives you a little idea of why I enjoy our visits to San Miguel. Show us your favorites Instagrams below :-) Signing off, Tina

    Oh my gosh, absolutely STUNNING! What type of camera do you have?

      Thank you. For my Instagram images I simply use my Samsung tablet or phone. Usually, my phone which is a S4 mini. Many times I find good phone images involve proper lighting and focus. Instagrams filters can also help an okay picture become something more ;-)

      Thanks Jordan. Linkups are a blogger thing ;-) This one isn’t going so great so I am putting it on hold for the time being.
