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!
