How to be an Instagram Photo Floozy

I have a problem.

I may need to have my camera surgically attached to my hip.  I’m in love with photography.

If I could marry it, I would.

I’m not fussy.  It can be a camera, an iPhone, an ‘anything’.

If it takes a photo…. it’s my BFF.

Then I discovered INSTAGRAM.

Instagram is a perfect place to be a photography floozy.

It is a place where tawdry trollops of photography flooziness meet.

Want to come and meet me there?

I’m a self confessed instagram hussy.  And you?

You can see my instagram photos here : Pinstagram

Come and see me and we can be instagram trollops together.

Photo booth funnies

Obviously, I am not the only trollop in town. :)

 I like to hang out with other photography harlots.

Something about PHOTOGRAPHY, not just instagram photography, but ANY PHOTOGRAPHY…

It’s eye candy.

Delicious eye candy.

I have a friend. Yes. That’s right. I have one friend. :)

She suggested a photo album for the blog.

A place to go and just flip through photos.

Like the old days.

Photo albums. Remember those?

If not, you are not ancient like me.

Never mind.

Those are not wrinkles, they are laugh lines.

So I took the advice of my ONE FRIEND.

~ Thank you Donna, I luuurves you ~

…and I gathered a street corner place for all the photos to hang out.

In the upper header of the blog you will see a tab called PHOTO ALBUMS.

Fancy name, huh?

I’m as smart as a third grader.  So shut it.

This is for your photographic flooziness.

This first ‘virgin’ photo album is called


Instagram photo using FotoRus Photo app

A COW traffic jam in my hood.

Now that I have taken the leap to post one album, LOOK OUT NELLY…cause I am going to go nutty with more, more more photo albums in that fancy dancy header.

Because you folks are demanding. LOL.

I give you an inch, and you take a mile.


Percolator Photo App combined with instagram

Are you ready to check out the first group of photos in the photo album?



P.s. Click on the FS green/grey button on the bottom right of this gallery to see it in full screen.   It’s so cool ! ….

Remember, you can also see these albums in the PHOTO ALBUM header at the top of the blog as well.   So there, I must be smarter than a third grader.  I put photographs in TWO PLACES. Tahhhdahhh !!

Want to see more photo albums added ?

Tell me what you want, what you really really want. LOL.

Leave your suggestions in the comment section.  Puuurty please with a cherry on top.

Let me guess….tree house photo album added next? Hmmm….

Send me presents.

Not squirrels.

I have enough of those.

    I just gave into iPhone after being a blackberry user for a decade. It’s like discovering a whole new universe. Instagram is going to take over FB. It’s addicting for sure!

  2. Donna says:

    Loving your Twitter Background with InstaBG – so much fun isn’t it? And so easy to keep all your current pics there – every visit to your account we see something new!

    Hope you’re having a fab ‘Road Trip’ and taking photos all the way!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      So True DONNA!!
      I love it. If I could kiss ya, I would. It is so cool, how the background changes based on instagram pix, and what is most popular. LOVE LOVE.

  3. Pamela says:

    I love photography too. Instagram is fun and quite addictive! Have a great weekend!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      So true Pamela!
      Crazy how enjoyable it is, isn’t it? I find it relaxing and challenging too… create photos that are so unique. How about you? Crazy FUN ?! :)

      • Pamela says:

        Yes, Instagram is crazy fun! I am always thinking of ideas on photos to share. It is nice to present a mix of everything. I was actually a Blackberry loyalist before. But now, I totally switched to IPhone because of the Instagram app. Love it!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      P.s. Pamela, I ADORE following you on instagram too !!! You have such great travel inspired photos. You d’best. Lynne !

  4. You know I love photography, said the professional photographer/blogger…so I’ll be a photography floozy with ya. I love this idea :-) MORE photos please. Instagram is the BEST!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Hi Stephanie!
      Oh my oh my….I just discovered a new way to display photos in the blog in a new style of gallery. You will love it !! Look again at the photo album header in my blog. P.s. I added more pix too!
      If you need the plugin name, let me know. My web geniuses at Waylay Design found it for me. I could KISS THEM !!
      Have a FAB-U-BLISS day.

    Us Blackberry users hate you Instragram Lover….but I still love your photos and I might catch red squirrels on my property collect them in a box somehow figure out where you live (im sure I can google map treeshouses and yours would come up. lol ) because google maps rock and then release all of my red squirrels on your property since they are eating all of my veggie oil.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      LOL ! Danica
      You taught me something new today. I thought Blackberry users could use apps like instagram. Dang.
      Those squirrels…I have an idea !! I think you should come to the treehouse, sit on the front porch with me, and we should come up with a squirrel plan-of-attack. What should we start with ? Should we throw water balloons at them? That could be entertaining. We could Vlog our fun! :) LOL !

      • Danica says:

        HAHA! just the the thought of VLOGGING that made me laugh out loud. I would need some serious strawberry lemonade “refresher” to get me through that!

        We could lure the squirrels with veggie oil bucket just outside the treehouse and then make a trail of it going into a trap…..then dump water on them!

        Wait a second I went way too into detail with that which means I am slacking far too much at work. 😉

  6. Val says:

    Oh my gosh – – please please show me how to do instagram! I just LOVE the photo album that I just scrolled through. You have my email address, so please tell me how to do this and how I can insert one of these photo albums on my blog. Much appreciated for the help and I love your site and want to be a photo floozie too! (Val from

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Hi Val
      You can sign up for Instagram at It is so awesome and easy to do, but you can only use instagram from your cell phone or iPad. It is for mobile devices only. It is BLISS.
      You can learn a lot about it by googling info on it, or watching YouTube vids. So exciting ! It would be great to put in your blog.
      The photo gallery is a plugin called FIAGallery for wordpress blogs, but it must be a not a
      big hugs..and happy blogging…

  7. Considering, (and notwithstanding) your strong distaste for camera manuals, you take a mighty fine photo, Mrs Knowlton :)))

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Why thank ya sista! P.s. The photo gallery is now working like a charm, and I used a new plugin called FIAGallery. You would LOVE LOVE LOVE it for your blog…miss brilliant photographer.

  9. Terri Betz says:

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

    Confessions of a wannabe photographer, I couldn’t purposely take a good photo if my life depends on it. I use my iphone, not a camera., that said I adore a beautiful photo and so admire those with a photographic green thumb. You take a mighty fine picture, love the idea of a photo album and yes the tree house would be a great subject, include the squirrels. You might get lucky and they could be camera shy, and the;y will leave and never come back. Have yet to explore instagram I must do that, love the cows, it looks like an impressionist painting.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Hey Suzanne,
      You will look like a BRILLIANT photographer by taking photos with your iPhone and instagramming them. I promise. It is dead easy and it makes photos look so sexy!
      The cow photo in this blog post is a photo that I took with my iPhone, and then I edited it on my iPhone in an app called FotoRus in the PAINT mode. So simple. Give it a try. Let me know how it goes!
      And…yes…I added the treehouse to the photo albums! Woooohooooo
