Instagram has a weird way of turning everything into a competition for praise. Whenever I post, I always begin to think whether a certain picture will “do well.” Over time, this has limited me from posting certain pictures. From now on, I will be posting pictures that I like the most, not pictures that I believe will get the most amount of likes. This shot is a perfect example. A kid playing basketball while walking down a Brooklyn street during the summer. I love this shot and the story behind it, but to many, many other people, it’s just a kid dribbling basketball.
