Local Lens: Collecting Everyday Scenes in Chile

To see more of Chile through the lens of a local, follow @valentinagreene on Instagram.

Valentina Greene (@valentinagreene) is always going beyond the surface when she’s photographing a scene. “I enjoy looking beyond the things people usually see—like backyards or barns,” she says. “Behind facades and behind the scenes for the real deal. It’s my way of trying to get to know people and their stories.” Among Valentina’s favorite local places in Chile are the tiny towns near Lago Vichuquen. She says, “I am inspired by traces or clues that reflect people’s daily lives. Things that seem unimportant are precious to me.” Valentina also loves photographing the beach in Maitencillo, “I like its minimal scenario.” In her hometown of Santiago, Valentina recommends La Vega, a street market “full of color, noise, smells, dogs and the best characters.”


Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPballoons

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

The Instagram community celebrated its fourth birthday this week, and we’ve decided to celebrate with balloons. The goal this weekend is to capture creative photos and videos that feature balloons. Some tips to get you started:

  • From a giant, multicolored balloon bouquet to a word made of silver inflated letters or even balloon animals, if you can dream it up, there are balloons for it. Let your creativity run wild.
  • Think about the effect of a single balloon compared to a group and what they’ll look in like in different places. A lone balloon in an unexpected location tells a very different story that large groupings assembled for a party.
  • Finally, from the process of inflation, a struggle against the wind to the final pop, balloons move in interesting ways. Keep these in mind for video—and don’t forget the balloons can be filled with more than just air.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPballoons hashtag to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs and videos to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged image or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday morning.


Collecting ‘Battle Art’ from Young Illustrators with @secretwalls

For more disruptive art from Secret Walls battles at TEDxTeen, New York Comic-Con and other events around the world, follow @secretwalls and browse the #secretwalls hashtag on Instagram.

Terry Guy (@secretwalls) felt frustrated by the lack of opportunities for young artists in London, UK, so he decided to create a better, cooler way to showcase their work: illustration battles. Eight years later, the competitions—where artists draw against each other in front of a live audience—are part of an international movement called “Secret Walls.”

“The concept was inspired by some of my interests: comics, movies like ‘Fight Club,’ live art and graffiti,” says Terry. “It started out as 16 street artists. We never intended for the event to go global, but it did, quickly, because of social media.”

Participants are encouraged to experiment with different themes and styles, with only two restrictions: the piece must be completed during a 90-minute time frame, and the illustrator must use a monochromatic palette. Photos of the finished products are shared on the Secret Walls Instagram account, where credits range from amateurs to well-known artists from over 25 countries.

“Some artists end up battling aggressively with visual attacks on each other, while others just do their own thing and paint a beautiful mural,” says Terry. “At the end of the day, the mission of Secret Walls is to paint the whole world black and white, one pot of paint at a time.”

A Picture Perfect Love Story with @elizabeth_wisdom and @Denislafargue

For more photos from Elizabeth and Denis’s wedding as it unfolds, follow @elizabeth_wisdom and @denislafargue on Instagram.

What started with small conversations through Instagram photo comments, became a fairy-tale love story for Elizabeth Wisdom (@elizabeth_wisdom) and Denis Lafargue (@denislafargue). After months of texting and eventually speaking on the phone, Elizabeth finally drove from Mineola, Texas to visit Denis in New Orleans, Louisiana. “I had seven hours to think about the fact that I was about to stay with the family of a man I had never met in person,” Elizabeth recalls of the nerve-wracking trip. But all fear vanished when they finally met. “Within moments of being together we both secretly knew that we were meant to be together,” Denis remembers, and in less than a year he proposed to the woman of his dreams. Denis printed out Instagram pictures from the trips to visit each other and formed a trail on the floor. “The trail of photos led me to the barn where Denis was standing with his guitar. He sang the most beautiful song he had written for this occasion and got down on one knee to propose to me,” Elizabeth recalls the romantic moment.

The couple now counts down the days to October 18 when they will finally tie the knot—and as they go they’re excited to continue sharing their story with the community. “There will be lots of moments shared on Instagram from the wedding day,” Elizabeth says. “I’m thankful for the people who have followed our relationship from the very beginning up to this point.”

K ata sahabat aku, yang jadi masalah bukan cuma jadwal yang ogah diajak kompakan. tapi juga masalah duit. yaaaaahhh, sebenernya beberapa dari kita mau urunan buat bayarin, tapi yang dibayari malah nolak jeee -__________- #sokjaimsangatininamanya

l agian, film ini juga bisa jadi inspirasi koks guys… adegannya aja bikin dagdigdug dan kita-kita yang nonton bakal ketawa mulu sepanjang film.

M OVE ON. di film ini kita yang belum bisa move on bisa ketarik dan sadar bahwa move on itu harus dilakukan, lalu akan tiba saatnya kita dapet pengganti mantan yang lebih WAW…

m akanyaaa, yang belum sempat nonton, disempat-sempatin yaahh:) film nya dijamin bagus banget! apalagi ini kan karya Monty Tiwa ya kan, penggarapnya Operation Wedding, Get Married 3, and Get Married 4! pasti bakal seru, unik, dan selalu dikenang kayak film-film tema pernikahan lainnya. *ceritanya lagi promosi* #hahahaapabangetsihakuini <3

n onton secepatnya yaa kalau nggak mau mati penasaran kayak aku gini… terutama kalau artis yang diidolain main di film @AkuKauDanKUA_, bakal heboh-atau lebih parah lagi dibilang stress-persis aku.. #sedihsekalidiriku

P asti aku bakal ngakak sepanjang film. dijamin. ga perlu di ramal dehh, yakin 100% ;)

p erkataan demi perkataan atau yang lebih kita kenal dengan kata ‘dialog’ dari para pemain yang ditulis di #tabloidbintangedisi1213 kayak ujaran DEON, “Gue udah ngejar lo seumur hidup gue,” atau ucapan RICO, “Setiap orang punya masa lalu. Gue yakin dengan pengalaman yang lo lewatin, lo bisa jadi ibu yang luar biasa.”

Q iqiqi… nulis apalagi yaa? bingung deh.. malah jadi kayak cacing kebelet kawin deh (?) whaaa, gasabar pengen nonton. apalagi ngeliat tweet manusia-manusia di luar sana yang udah nonton di hari pertama, tambah pengen pake banget.

R asanya tiap detik; tiap menit; tiap jam; tiap hari; menuju hari yang ditentukan untuk nonton bareng, aku kayak takut bakal delay lagi atau lebih parah batal ><

“r andom hari okelah, tapi jangan lama-lama juga keles. ntar tambah busy lagiii kita. apalagi anak sekolah formal kan UTS nya minggu besok, sedangkan anak homskul udah minggu lalu..” komen begini pengennya, tapi kalau komennya gini dan temen-temen malah ilfill gimane? siapa yang tanggung jawab?hayoooo? :(
