8 fun Instagram accounts I follow

I don’t know about you, but I very rarely follow accounts on Instagram just to see “pretty pictures”. Instagram is a platform for me where I connect, so I usually follow people that I “know” (personally or through the Internet ;)) and where I have an invested interest in that person and or their art/business.

However, there are a couple of Instagram accounts that I randomly came across and which I solely follow because of their beautifully curated photo streams. Today I want to share a few of those with you. I have no personal connection to these Instagrammers (ok, except for the first one!), and yet, I love to see their photos pop up in my stream every day.

@wehandstand This is my (not-so)“little” cousin’s project. I participated too. Just not as graciously as the other people who submitted their awesome handstand photos. At least, I had location going for me (Horseshoe Bend, AZ – lower right).


@dailyoverview The geography nerd in me likes the bird’s-eye views from above. I mean, isn’t this cool?!


@Wrightkitchen Beautiful color schemes with food. So pretty to look at.


@Cocolavine Because I secretly always wanted to be a ballerina, but I am not sure I would have had the discipline and I am glad I didn’t ruin my feet with these pointe shoes.


@weareknitters If you’re a knitter, you want to check this one out. They have a website with knitting kits as well. Really awesome.


@coffeenclothes Can you tell I have a thing for flat lay photography? Is this coincidence or ‘a thing’ right now?  


@stumptowncoffee Duh! Coffee. What else?


@valgardenadolomites You know that one already. Beautiful photography from the Southern Alps that make me nostalgic for my childhood. 

Recommend one of your favorite Instagram feeds in the comments!

  1. Adding that Dolomites one to my feed! Gorgeous!


  2. I’m going to add a few of your recommendations to my feed. Cool handstand!

  3. Just started following a handful of these. Great recs!

  4. I follow Stumptown too! But you likely already knew that. :) I also follow a bunch of photographers whose style of photography I admire and like a lot. Do you follow Nat Geo? I think you’d like them too.

  5. Stumptown Yeahhh! Portland Yeahhhh! :)

  6. I started following the dailyoverview because I secretly always wanted to be a national geography photographer. I recently discovered “this.patterned.life” and its soon inspiring. You need to check it out.
    Happy Easter Weekend, Tobia

  7. I too end up following a lot of people I know, mixed in with a handful of celebrities, some fun fashion accounts, and admittedly, cute babies and pets. These are some good suggestions and also, they are making me want a yummy latte!

  8. Oh love these, thanks for sharing!

  9. Some of these are really gorgeous, I really like the dailyoverview. Will look into following some of them.
    As a recommendation I would say check out blackfuel (blackfuel.com). The Black Fuel Trading Co. is a project started by Shannon Leto, Jareds Brother and Drummer of 30 Seconds to Mars. They are selling Specialty Coffee. Their Instagram contains a lot of Vintage Pics and Coffee.
