Instagram – Photography

When I was a teen photography was a great and primary love of mine.  While I have found myself pursuing different paths, I still greatly enjoy capturing the world around me in photographs and something about the beauty of Thailand and Muay Thai is conducive to this medium.  Originally, I’d planned to share some of these images via Flickr but it just wasn’t happening. I have a great Facebook community through my page so I thought I’d like to give Instagram a try, now that it is available for Android phones. I’ve already taken to it, more so than I thought I would. It allows really easy cross sharing to Facebook, and the Instagram stream is very simple and stripped down. It almost creates a photo essay format, which is great.

And that seems to be the way I’d like to use the format, as a photo essay. There will be photos that I share to Instagram that won’t be shared on Facebook (because Facebook is a more casual and informal share whereas Instragram collectively appears more artistically abstract). And there will be photos I share on Facebook that won’t be on Instagram for the same reason. I’m experimenting with the different forms of expression.

So if you aren’t on Instagram yet, do join, it’s pretty easy. And you can follow my Instagram stream here. I’d like to make that stream its own special expression of my experiences. A nice example of someone using Instagram as if a photo essay is this cyclist roblutter who is documenting his cycling around the world. I’m new to the platform so if you’ve discovered other really good photography follows, please do let me know.

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
