World Wide Instameet Weekend in Miami Recap

Last weekend Instagram.com called to action photographers, photojournalists, and Instagrammers to take to the streets, meet up and share with the world their experiences for that day. Communities from all parts of the world participated and shared their pictures via the designated #WWIM9 hashtag. Miami was not cut off from the World grid, as a total of 4 meet ups took place in our city, all respectively showcasing our eclectic community to the world.

All though the Miami edition of WWIM was successful from a pure participations and enjoyment standpoint, as a community I think we spread ourselves thin. From Coral Gables to Virginia Key to the halls of the Metro Rail, our creative shout-outs to the world were dimmed by the distances between them. Next time Instagrammers should all join forces to make one cohesive meet that makes our city’s talent stand out and brings collaboration between Miami creative minds to an optimum. Here is a recap of the weekend’s event.

Finally on Sunday May 18th, World Wide Instameet in Miami culminated with the “Underground Meet Up Day,” hosted by Jordan Krate (@gotphotos_101) and sponsored by Lower pro. Just in time for the Metrorail’s 30th Birth Day, Instagrammers captured beautiful pictures of Miami’s Metrorail Public Transit System. What would normally be considered, to everyday Metrorail users, as mundane architecture and corridors, Instagrammers were able to showcase the beauty  with in them.

    Hey @ArtofMiami, Great coverage of all of the weekend’s Instameets. Although I have to disagree with you about “..as a community I think we spread ourselves thin.” It’s the ability to have the representation that we did at MULTIPLE opportunities over the course of 2 days was a great effort. Although it appears there was a duplication of events on that Saturday morning, most of the other events happened with great turn outs. Speaking for myself, I made 2 instameets over the entire weekend. If I could have attended all 4 I would have because there is so much to see in our wonderful city as well as being able to absorb the creativity inspired by the many other talented instagramers of Miami. Keep up the great work on the blog!

    See you ‘grammin later!
