If you could say something in one Instagram caption, one time, to a half a million people, what would it be?
With your permission of course, maybe I'll share your message/thought as a caption for one of my photos.
Photo: I went to Patagonia for the first time last April. I had 2 weeks to visit and before I went I was told that with two weeks I should go visit a bunch of different places to really experience Patagonia right. Although I agree that there are many places to see and visit in Patagonia, I know myself and how I like to experience a place, so decide that instead of traveling all over the place seeing ”the sights” (aka the Instagram spots) id just base myself in El Chalten for the full 2 weeks and experience the ”sights” and going beyond to get a better sense for the area. I wasn't traveling with anyone. I was hiking solo. Amongst the many special memories I took in from my time there is the one this photo shows. This day I got out of bed earlier. I had no plans beyond watching the sunrise that morning. After sunrise, I looked over and saw a hill and was curious, so walked in that direction. After walking for good distance I saw a rock, sat down and enjoyed the vast silence with only the wind blowing through my hair and drying my sweat while the clouds and confirms passed above. I took this photo during the 2 hours I sat there. It's probably one of my favorite I've ever taken. I was told about the crowds of hikers in Patagonia but that day I spent around 10 hours without seeing another human. It's worth taking it slow sometimes, not running everywhere for a photo checklist and instead soaking in the what is nature.
