Vsco, Vsco, Vsco, Vsco
I’ve been obsessed with Vsco since I first heard about it online, I requested a grid and was lucky to get one within a week or so. I must start by saying that I have fallen head over heels in love with Vsco and everything they have to offer; from the clean minimal layout of the app and the different presets, to the general nice-ness of all the staff I’ve been in contact with, emailing you to let you know your images have been selected for the curated Vsco Grid (I’ve had a few images picked now and it always makes my day!) The app is so easy to use and looks so nice that I’ve almost completely stopped using Instagram. I could spend hours (and I mean hours) looking through the curated grid or the Journal whenever I need some inspiration or just have a bit of time to kill.
When I talk to friends who haven’t used it or don’t know what it is, I’m always quick to try and convert them. Now, I think everyone I know uses it in one way or another.
I’ve wanted to write this post for a while now but have been busy back at work and just haven’t had the time, now I have a spare afternoon and can finally put a post together! Yesterday I went to take some photos for the post using Vsco. I decided to have a look at the new artwork dotted all over Stokes Croft after the Stokes Croft Art Festival on the weekend. I haven’t been through there recently and I was not disappointed! Everywhere I looked there was something new to see. I took lots of different shots but was in a rush so unfortunately, didn’t have the time to stop and really appreciate what I was looking at.
I love how much Stokes Croft changes on what seems to be a daily basis. My favourites have to be the new look Tramps’ Triangle and the free wall and PRSC building at the start of Jamaica Street.
