When you give the right old man an Instagram, he’s going to want to post—a lot. And when he wants to post, he’s going to need content. And when he needs content, a masterpiece emerges and the universal cuteness meter is blown to smithereens.
So there’s a lesson here somewhere.
When I stumbled across Mr. Walker’s Instagram account, I was immediately curious. Aside from his age, what makes his account unique and worth following on a busy channel? Then I looked harder. His photos are a window into the life of an Englishman you know. He loves his family above all, is the proudest grandpa you’ve ever met (besides mine, of course), and lives to encourage others. And I connected with that.
Instagram is a place for both beautiful curation and low-quality photography. The bottom line is that people are attracted to those who embrace reality by not conforming, who are genuine and exude love for those near and far.
