BestNine

My #2017BestNine Instagram pictures include:

Four drone shots, three beagle shots, one drone and beagle shot, one of that storm and one of that sunset.

Go here to follow me on Instagram (although presumably, this means that I’m not going to post anything remarkable for the rest of the year (at least)) and go here to find your #2017bestnine.

Instagram push

While we’re on the subject of photos, I want to further my Instagram usage. It’s becoming (has become?) my “other” social media home (twitter being the first), but I’m pretty sure I’m not getting as much as I could from it, simply because I haven’t got to a critical mass of followers and following yet.

Thus, if you have an Instagram account you think I should follow – whether it be yours, someone else’s or perhaps even both – please let me know. The best way to do this would be to share the wealth in the comments section below or simply to follow me on Instagram.
Note that I’m 6000coza on there because someone else got 6000 first and then promptly didn’t post anything on it. Ever. He also has 10 times more followers than I do, despite having absolutely zero content.

Grr.

I like to think that they’re all just people looking for my stuff, and that’s great, but then I realise how much they’re getting let down by me (well, him, but you know what I mean…) and that makes me sad.

I’ll be following up on all your suggestions and following back to take a look at your images, so please don’t be shy.
That’s not how social media accounts work. (See 6000 on Instagram for evidence of this.)

Thanks in advance.

TSASOTV

Here’s the acoustic version of a-ha’s only number 1 hit (I know, right?) The Sun Always Shines On TV. and featuring Ingrid Helene Håvik.

Yes, another track from the upcoming MTV Unplugged Summer Solstice album, out in early October.

The next week or so is going to be ridiculously busy for me and the clan, but I will endeavour to keep you updated with exciting news, quality content and several (or more) quota photos.

Keep up by following the 6000 miles… Facebook page and my Instagram.

Unspiration

My new favourite Instagram account (apart from my own Instagram account, durr!) is this one: Unspirational.

When browsing Instagram, I don’t see a lot of landscapes ruined by pithy “inspirational” quotes, because I carefully choose to follow people who carefully choose not to post landscapes ruined by pithy “inspirational” quotes.

It’s not rocket science.

Still, I am aware of the LRBP”I”Q phenomenon, so it’s nice that someone has come up with an antithesis to it. And the best bit (for me) is that a lot of these un(in)spirational are loosely based around well-known “inspirational” quotes. Clever.

Many are full of good advice:

Plenty more where that came from – so click through on the link above and be generally anti-social, miserable (but actually rather amused) just like me.

Quite Astonishing Sunset

Suiderstrand, this evening. Seriously (and I have given this some thought), the most amazing sunset I think I have ever seen.

This is the Instagram upload (but #nofilter, ok?) because I don’t have bandwidth and service to upload the “proper” pictures from out here in die bos.  I’ll tag a link to them when I get back to Cape Town, so come back tomorrow evening.

UPDATE: Here they are.

This evening, though?
Quite astonishing.
