Photography

The hobby

I enjoy traveling and photography. The best photos I would like to to share with the world, however, the problem is that I am to lazy too do so, therefore I wrote a program (instacron ) that will do that job for me. It takes a photo and adds: a random quote, camera and location info, and #hashtags related to the photo.
