Theme: Hang Glider
Nathan Jones is a professional hang glider with 22k followers! (For those who don’t know, hang gliding is an unpowered flying apparatus for a single person, consisting of a frame with a fabric airfoil stretched over it. The operator is suspended from a harness below and controls flight by body movement.)
Nathan takes you along with him on his flights, in flight, pre flight, alongside, it’s really quite thrilling to join in on the fun with him! Are you into action sports, scenery, and a unique aerial view from a killer perspective? Check Nathan’s Instagram out! (as well as like his Facebook page and his Youtube page!).

Hashtag Inspiration: #emojiportraits

This hashtag is brilliant, hilarious, and such a note on our technologic society as it is in it’s modernity today. Most of us know, or have heard of the word “emoji” before, and it’s great to see someone bring them out of our texts and word-based conversations and into a more permanent visual way.
It is a relatively newer and less-used hashtag, and I would love to see how these guys are able to amp it up once the new emoji’s come this fall!
If you know of any interesting hashtags that you think deserve a highlight, send me them in my ask or email me at email@example.com! Lots more hashtags to come !
