I’d like to add a little wonder and inspiration to my Instagram feed!
Does anyone have any recommendations for Instagram accounts to follow that have a hint of the wondrous, or share the mission of looking at looking at the ordinary in a different way?
I’ll share some of my favorites!
@ irishmarianshrines : This is an account devoted to surveying the shrines to Mary all throughout Ireland. Seeing the diversity of the shrines and how religion meshes with the landscape is really cool!
@bootscrapersofdublin : Literally just pictures of “bootscrapers” as features built into the exteriors of Dublin buildings. I love the idea that someone is walking eagle-eyed through Dublin on the lookout for these things. Its bio is “Looking out for the Overlooked.” Could that not be more perfect??
@abandoned_jewish_memories : The manager of this account visits the remnants of Eastern European Jewish communities. It’s clearly a passion project, and the captions to each picture are highly informative and thoroughly researched.
And, of course, @bodegacatsofinstagram .
I’m also a sucker for the hashtags #streetshrines and #roadsideshrines.
I’m curious to see what else people have come across!
