Yes, I was stressed for exactly 4 days because one of my favorite photo app which is Instagram was not working properly.
I had to do a troubleshooting just to have it work.
- I deleted the application over my iPhone and re-downloaded it again.
- I checked for any updates over iTunes – but it seems that the last update was the one I have already.
- My current OS for my iPhone is up to date. 4.3.1 so I don’t see any problems with my iPhone itself.
- I then restored the original settings for my iPhone. Made a back up first then restored back all apps.
- Lastly, Hubby rebooted our router just to make sure that the problem was not with our internet connection.
So what happen then? Well it still didn’t worked. Everything was working fine except for this app. Oh I forgot that my Gmail email was not working too. It’s not receiving and sending emails. So this made me conclude that the problem was with our internet connection. My best-friend said that the slow connection is probably the reason why it can’t feed any new feeds and and the same time can’t do any updates at all.
And so I gave up
Then the other day, when I was playing Smurfs Village, I checked if the feeds will work. And voila! Believe it or not, I was able to upload 2 photos that was on queue. Then I said to myself, probably it will work now then later it will not. So I didn’t expect too much. The next day, the first thing I did before going off from bed was to check the feeds again – and another voila! My IG is back to normal. It can refresh new feeds and I can share photos once again. So what was the problem? I really can’t tell. But I really guess it’s the connection just like what my best-friend said.
Well, first thing I did was to update my 365 days project. And that’s the next thing I need to blog. I hope this will not happen again – otherwise, I might get stressed again, hahaha! Sorry folks, just addict with this app that’s all.
Well, all of us over Twitter are all now addicted with one of Apple’s top application, which is “Instagram”. As you may all know, I’m using this app to complete my 365 days project. And I’m really glad that I’ve chose this application to comply with this year’s project. Though sometimes I’m using Hipstamatic too – but it depends on my mood, and it depends on the subject. It’s really easier for me to make sure that I’m updated.
Aside from the different filters it offers, there’s a new update with it which is the “tilt+shift” option which creates a slight bokeh shot effect for the photo. Some of us say that it’s the new Flickr on our group. We love leaving each other comments and liking each ones photos. It’s funny how we adore each other’s photos over Instagram. And aside from that, we go over Flickr and view it there too. Isn’t it ironic?
Try to download it, and I bet you’ll keep your photos up like me which now runs up to 103 with 23 followers and following 22.
Just something to share with you when we went traveled the other day to Lebanon. The view was extravagant. Some of the mountain tops still has snow, but it’s about to melt since we’re expecting spring soon. This was taken using my mobile phone only. I just tweaked the colors in PS though just to lighten up the color
When we went up again in the mountains of Bludan last week, hubby requested me to take a shot of this angle. He wanted to make it a desktop background on for his laptop. I’m glad that the result of the shot was almost perfect. I haven’t been taking photos with a good angle recently, I’m glad that my mojo for photography is back again.
Wouldn’t it be nice to own a fuji digital cameras which you can use easily in times of special occasions? Well, we have a wedding to attend this evening. I will not take my dslr with me since it’s heavy for me to use now.
I wish as well to take photos on the wedding, but it’s actually forbidden to take a camera inside the hall. I miss taking photos. I miss the zoom in zoom out, haha! I wish to go outdoors and take wonderful views of Syria. But it’s really too cold for us now to go around. In a few months from now, summer will be here. Can’t wait for it.
Just to make sure that I will not be late with uploading photos for this year’s project 365, I just want to let you know that my photos are all uploaded straight over my flickr account under the “365 Days / 2011” album. I’m so happy that I’ve finally got my flickr under pro (thanks to my Mommy Santa for making my wish come true).
Click on the image above to direct you over my flickr account and view these photos. I love Instagram! I’m gaining friends as well over that application. Before me and dear friend Shey are the only ones on my feeds, now I’m following 10 and have 9 followers. You can follow me too. My name si “Jhari O. or @omjulia”.
And so a week for 2011 has just ended. I’m so left behind with the first week. Thank you Tracy for the reminder.
Last year was a disaster. I started off doing well with the 365 days project, but then after our vacation back home, I had to cut it short since I don’t have access to the internet and posting photos was impossible. And so I committed myself to taking shots for this year using my iPhone since most of the times my dslr is not with me and I can easily post it over my flickr account as well. I’ll be using as well some of my favorite photo apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram to twist effects on the photos too.
So here are my share for this 1st week:
DAY 1 – Was not a good start for me. I was dehydrated to due to continuous 6 days of diarrhea. Was on bed rest as well for 3 days. Baby’s fine though.
DAY 2 – Julia’s clothes for the winter that was a gift for her for her 1st birthday now fits her perfectly. I forgot who gave this for her actually. Thank you!
DAY 3 – It’s my dear Father-in-laws 57th birthday. Happy Birthday Papa! We love you! Cheers for a long life.
DAY 4 – Hubby went out with Papa to fix some things for the house and arranged some important documents as well, so while waiting for them to arrive, me and Julia watched Monster Inc for 3x in a row. Waaaaah! See how amazed she is until now even if she watched it for the nth time. Simple joys of childhood. Sigh…
DAY 5 – A healthy brunch. Fried Cauliflower, Eggplant, Chicken Springroll and fresh cucumber and tomatoes eaten with bread or kubus.
DAY 6 – Keeping myself warm enough. Bbrrrrrr…
DAY 7 – Feeling moody on a Friday morning. Mood swings of pregnancy, here we go again. Hubby had to endure the me and my childhood attitudes for today. And for that, I went out with MIL and SIL for an engagement party. Too bad camera are not allowed.
