Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 39

Now things start to get more difficult. In group 39, some of these photos I feel are improving in quality. And in future groups, I think the voting will get even more difficult. Be prepared!

This set of photos involves more buildings, weather, and outdoors. Enjoy!

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Here are the photos:

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 38

I’ve finished adding Japan photos to Instagram, so it’ll be capped at 63 groups for the first round. Once we finish group 63, we’ll move on to the second round, which will be randomly sorted photos that passed the first round. It’ll basically be the same format.

But now, on to the 38th group. This time, you get to see trains, buildings, and darkness. Enjoy!

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 37

Now for some more Instagram photos. This time, there’s plenty of snow! This is probably the only set of photos that will have snow. It doesn’t really snow much in the Tokyo area. Starting to get some more big city photos, too. Enjoy!

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Let’s Share Our Social Media Links

Are you using social media? Well, then why not share them and gain some new followers? It’s been a while since I’ve done this on this blog, so I thought it was time to do it again. Here are my social media links:

Twitter: @jaydeejapan

With 3293 followers at the moment, this has my largest following. More than this blog! But it’s such an easy way to communicate with me. Please follow!

YouTube: Jay Dee Archer

With 55 subscribers, this is probably one of my least followed. I have a lot of very interesting videos to come, especially if you like Japan, books, and sometimes general silliness. Please subscribe!

Facebook: Jay Dee Archer (official author Facebook page)

It has 73 likes, and could definitely use more. If you use Facebook, why not follow me there? I usually do blog updates, but I plan to have more discussions, and it’s an easy way to talk to other followers.

Google Plus: Jay Dee Archer

With 70 followers, though more than 70,000 views, it’s not the most popular social media option, but it does get plenty of views. Please add me to your circles!

LinkedIn: Jay Dee Archer

I have only 48 connections, as this is the social media website I have used the least. However, it is a professional social media website, and I’m trying to establish myself more there. If you’re on LinkedIn, connect with me!

Instagram: @jaydeejapan

With 427 followers, this is probably my third biggest following anywhere. It’s all photos of Japan at the moment, though photos in Canada will come soon. Using Instagram? Follow me!

Patreon: Jay Dee Archer

I just started this, so I have no followers or patrons. It does include a blog, so whether you become a patron or not, you can read public posts that I make. So, please follow! And if you like, become a patron.

Now it’s your turn. In the comments below, leave your social media links. Check other people’s links, as well. Follow people! But also share your blog or website’s address. Follow as many people as you like. And I also ask you to do one more thing: share this post and get the word out. Let’s have a social media sharing party!

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 36

It’s been a while since the last time I posted some Instagram photos. I’ve actually started adding new photos, but I’m going to stop doing Japan photos soon. These votes are all about Japan photos, so any newer ones from Canada will not be included in these votes.

This time, there was a bit of a theme. A colour theme! You’ll see what I mean. Enjoy these pictures.

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 35

It’s been more than a week since the last group, so here’s the next one. The previous one didn’t get nearly as many votes as usual, so I think it may have gotten lost in some people’s newsfeeds. Please check it out and vote if you haven’t done so.

This next group features some nighttime shots, daytime shots, and even a little experimentation with tilt-shift. I got some interesting results, and I hope you enjoy them.

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 34

I recently announced that I’ll be closing my daily weather photo blog and will be returning to posting photos on Instagram. That means that there will be more than 62 groups. Sorry. But I’ll only be doing this series for photos I’ve taken in Japan. Anything posted after we’ve moved to Canada will not be included. So, there will be an end!

This time, you get plenty of photos involving the sky. There’s plenty of colour, and one that’s black and white. And yes, even a sunset. You’ll be seeing plenty of those in the future. So, enjoy these photos!

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.
