Endless horizon

How do you use Instagram to express yourself?

Emily Guardado uses it to share the pieces of her experiences. She posts the little squares as a journal and says, "Photos have the potential to hold so much emotion and memory. When I realized that, I became passionate about photography."

Guardado's feed gives a glimpse into the life of this Southern Californian twentysomething. She obviously loves coffee, flowers and her friends. It also seems like she's into books, traveling and details in life.

This picture from her collection exudes mood. The out of focus foreground being the wall's edge anchors the expansive sense of the Pacific Ocean. The image can be calming or dangerous; peaceful or emotional; hopeful to the endless possibilities or a reminder of a paralyzing experience. It's a picture that is universally relatable and invites you to draw your next scene.

It was made with an iPhone 6 and processed with VSCO app.
