Street talk with @granjools
Talking to strangers can take you to interesting places… This is how we discovered upcoming *Instagrammer granjools who we came across on Sydney’s streets. When looking at the beautiful photographs on her account, you wouldn’t believe that this 62 years young office worker has no professional background in photography. Furthermore, most photos are taken with her phone’s camera.
She started her Instagram account 18 months ago and now has over 1300 followers.
“This is not much, most of my friends have tens of thousands of followers” says granjools.
Her name is Julie but she admits that lately people call her Jools… She is planning to keep photographing as a hobby and thinks that being on Instagram is a fantastic way to meet new people. She gave us a list of her favourite accounts on Instagram. If you love photography – you should definitely check them out: laurenepbath, lovethywalrus, theoriginalmiss and womskyimages.
