We live in an age where if you didn’t take a picture, it didn’t happen. Some people have a problem with the takeover of social media and the lack of being present in the moment because you are focused on taking pictures. I completely DISAGREE with this, and I am here to help all of you that are like me and love to be in the moment, but also have an awesome lasting memory. Here is part 1 of my Instagram Guide to Pittsburgh.
