Mmm travel. Distracted already. Where was I?

#Instagram.
Can’t help but feel kind of ripped off that all these cool camera filter and grading apps once took me ages to set up on Quantel gear [the original ultra expensive Television graphics boxes] and then later Photoshop and After Effects.

Now even my children’s Kid Pix program blows me away with automatic animations, effects and audio. At the click of a single button. And now it’s 3D!

Anyway, whatever. Moving on…
The Interiors Addict recently did a 7 Day Instagram Challenge  which was so fun and v. inspiring.
#7Vignettes judged by Kara Rosenlund, super-stylist with her own vintage caravan of travelling wares. Swoon.

I used my iPhone, to be quick, to not take it too seriously

* On my first trip to Europe my then-boyfriend-now-husband and I hired a car from London and drove it onto the Chunnel Train to France. When we got to Calais we were to exchange it for a Left Hand drive vehicle. The French attendant could see the look of disapproval on our faces at the much smaller car we were exchanging for our Opel Astra. It was a mouse on wheels but as our French was tres rubbishe we didn’t have much to say. He looked at us again and announced enthusiastically: Automatique!

Still not convinced but ‘automatique’ has been quoted by one of us ever since whenever we are trying to do a bit of an up-sell.
