Instameethk, Wan Chai

‘Instameet’ is a gathering among Instagrammers. The organizers of Instameet sometimes hold photo walk activities so that Instagrammers can meet each other and get to know about a place.

I had my Instagram account from 2011 but have deeply engaged in it since last year. I didn't participate in Instameethk, the Instameet activities in Hong Kong until last weekend. The photowalk in Wan Chai covered some old communities including Pak Tai Temple, Tai Yuen Street and Blue House; renovated areas like Lee Tung Avenue; as well as the waterfront nearby. Although I revisited the place I studied and grew up about two weeks ago which is not that long, I still had something new to explore and I took a lot of photos as a result.

Instameet is more than social events. It is a bridge that brings you to understand more about a place, see how other people make observations from surroundings and how they take photos. Apart from the locals, you will see Instagrammers from overseas too, who have already plan to travel in a city and join the photo walk.

If you are also Instagrammers and are interested in the meet up, check out the Instagrams of them in different cities!

Instameet是Instagram使用者的聚會,Instameet活動策劃者不定期會舉辦攝影活動,讓參與者可以聚在一起互相認識並了解不同地方。

其實自2011年我已經有Instagram,但直到去年才較常使用。至於Instameet(包括在香港的Instameethk),上星期六才第一次參加。雖然兩星期前才去過灣仔,但透過參觀藍屋、北帝廟、利東街、太原街和海傍,這次還是新鮮的體驗,且找到不少拍攝題材。

Instameet並不只社交活動,它可說是一個橋樑,讓自己更了解一個地方,也讓自己看到人們如何觀察、如何拍攝。除了有在地人參與,還有在城市旅行中的人們。
