It’s quite amazing to find out that it was already the 9th instalment of the worldwide instameet on the 17th March 2014. This is a day where instagramers meet up and explore and shoot an area near them using the hashtag #wwim9. It was lovely looking through the hashtag to see the entries from all over the world.
While I’ve been an instagramer for a couple of years, I only knew about the event quite by chance through a mailer in Meetup.com. I’m a casual ‘grammer who normally post pictures of food through my account, but I was intrigued enough to check out the instagram community in Rome.
The event was held in front of the monumental Castel St Angelo, which was a weaponry stronghold with a long bridge connecting directly to San Pietro. We were lucky that we had a ridiculously gorgeous day with amazing blue skies and bright, fluffy clouds, making each shot practically postcard perfect.
For our task that day, we were to complete several challenges using the following tags :
And here are a few of the shots I took on my phone, most of them edited through Snapseed :
I didn’t manage to complete all my tasks, nevertheless I had a lovely time hanging out at my first ever Rome Instagram meet. 🙂
