I have to say that I can be quite emotional at times. It does not happen too often but when such moments do occur they can be quite epochal. How to put this in another way? My lady friend, who is very active on Instagram, recently organized a Sunday lunch for old, underprivileged folks at the old-age home near to our house. It is rare that she invites me to be a guest at her events, but so it was this time around. As it turns out, I was quite touched. I felt humble among all these wise people who are now faced with the difficulties of surviving on very little and always worrying about those things typical to them; their general health and the sudden illness or death of another close friend.
Now while this was quite touching and I was busy choking up on the occasion, my lady friend, if she was not busy supervising the kitchen and making sure that all and sundry got a warm plate, acting the consummate hostess at the mic, she was busy recording the entire event to her tablet. So it was that at some stage she asked me to take over this latter duty so that I could snap her in a few pics for later posting.
Once the event is closed and all is cleaned and tidied away, and once she has had a decent rest, she will be doing a little editing work. And then she will publish it all. It goes to her Instagram account. To make sure that as many people get the picture, she takes advantage of the buy likes Instagram activity that so many small businesses use. She is widely known in our neighborhood, but not enough people on the outer city limits are aware of the work she is doing. So, she wishes to make it known as far and wide as possible.
Of the Instagram followers she has acquired, there are a few of those who are coming forward with material donations and offering their time to help out at the next charitable event. I have to be honest, they would not have known about this opportunity if it were not for buying Instagram likes and followers. The photos we have put together need to be as clear as daylight. They have to be edited nicely so that they can be seen quite clearly and neatly by new visitors on platforms and devices so much different from ours.
The word we are looking for here is compatibility. As in I like to believe that as a gentleman I am quite compatible with my lady friend. In any case, she is quite an experienced photographer by now. I help her out with the captions and hashtags. Working with words for a living, I think I am quite good at that. I need to clear my head. I am in urgent need of a walk out in the fresh evening air before it gets rather late. I’ll take my mobile with just in case.
