Sunset in Galveston and quitting social media

I’ve realized I haven’t posted sunset images for quite some time. This past weekend I visited Galveston, a coastal city not far away from Houston, Texas, located on the Galveston Island and I endured being eaten alive by mosquitos to take these pictures. 🙂 Lesson learnt: take mosquito spray everywhere.

In other news, this past week was quite special, as I decided to quit Facebook and Instagram, which I was very much into. So much I was spending few hours of my day checking my accounts and always being obsessed with what I should share next. Not normal, I decided, so I closed them and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I want a life that is more curated, and through Facebook and Instagram we are being force-fed so much junk. I believe in the added value of the Internet, but I still want to put a little bit of effort into finding the information I want and need. Plus, I don’t want the act of sharing to take over the creative process. There are many things I considered and I won’t start detailing here, but I would like to share this article with anyone who is considering quitting social media, as it has been of a great help to me: Why I deleted my social media accounts by Daniel Milnor.

And now the Galveston sunset, taken handheld, with my Fuji x100S.
