#weekend hashtag project: #whpmirrorimage this weekend, the goal is to take photos and make videos that play with reflections and mirror the world around us, as in this image from lennart pagel (@lennart ).
look for reflections at different scales. whether it’s a mountain peak reflected in the still waters of an epic landscape or a silhouette standing tall in a cafe window, mirror images can be seen and photographed in lots of different places. keep your eyes peeled.
think about the light and mood. a sun-drenched landscape captured in a rearview mirror fuels a very different feeling than a still portrait framed by a vintage full-length mirror.
play with perspective. bring mirrors into nature to explore optical illusions or capture a warped or distorted image, or use multiple mirrors and reflections to create your own “hall of mirrors,” a kaleidoscopic image with an infinity reflection.
project rules: please add the #whpmirrorimage hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. by adding the #whpmirrorimage hashtag, you consent to and grant instagram all rights to repost your photo or video. if you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend with the #whpmirrorimage hashtag is eligible for the project and, if selected, to be featured next week.

whimsy. emotive. evolving. these are some of the words artist suzanne saroff (@hisuzanne ) uses to describe her art. “my photos are about playful exploration and finding new perspectives. i like to find new ways of interpreting our reality,” says the 25-year-old missoula, montana, native who lives and works in nyc. “i love working with flowers — they are beautifully complex but simultaneously simple. i love using them in my work as expressions, to subtly and abstractly communicate emotion that transcends the photo.”
for suzanne, her artistic process is personal. “it’s all about harnessing inspiration from life. i love to hold on to an idea or a feeling in time and bring it into the studio.”
check out today’s story to see suzanne find new perspectives.

hello, world! today’s #weeklyfluff gives us the chance to wish juno (@junotheangrycat ) a happy early birthday. 🎂 he turns 7 on october 20. “juno is 75% himalayan, 25% burmese, and 100% handsome,” says juno’s human dominique. “i think juno just looks angry because he is annoyed when humans fail to recognize his level of beauty. he is essentially the george clooney of cats.”

meet alix (human) and zamoura (horse), two very important members of julie van landschoot’s (@aboutlittlesandponies ) family. 🐎 🍎 “i selected a photo of my daughter because she is only 2; her behavior is still very spontaneous, so her kindness towards the horses is genuine. she loves being around them daily and she adores giving them food.” #whpkindness

“i think it started about 10 years ago — i happened to come across a book of fake sweets, and i just fell in love at first sight with it and bought it,” says erica (@maplelatte_erica ), a handmade artist from japan who creates adorable miniatures goods, mainly foods and sweets. “i do my best to create miniatures that make you think, ‘that looks real enough to eat!’”

gila freudenthal (@leointhegarden ) sprayed lots of good vibes in northern germany last weekend for #whpkindness. “one of my favorite quotes is, ‘if you can choose one thing to be, be kind,’” says gila. “i thought about a way to express that everyone should receive a little kindness and good vibes. i thought spraying it into the world would be a good way to make sure it gets to everyone.” follow along as we share more of our favorite submissions to last weekend’s hashtag project, #whpkindness.

“for me, being a warrior now means being a champion,” says golden state warrior stephen curry (@stephencurry30 ). “it’s holding yourself to a high standard, expecting greatness out of yourself, being prepared, disciplined.” the three-time nba (@nba ) champion and two-time mvp grew up in charlotte, north carolina, but the san francisco bay area has been home since the start of his professional basketball career. “this is the place that kind of shaped me in that respect,” says stephen of the bay area. “i hope to obviously play here for the rest of my career, but once it’s all said and done, retire, hopefully a lot of more years, i’ll probably still stay out here. because just the people are so cool, there’s so much to do, good food, you can travel all over the bay, get a different vibe. there are so many different pockets that show you so much love.”
to celebrate the tip off of this year’s basketball season, we’re at home and on the court with stephen. see more on today’s story and our igtv channel.

No matter how many batches she bakes, ran (@konel_bread ) gets excited every time she slices into a fresh loaf of bread. “i’m nervous every time!” says ran, who lives in tokyo.
inspired by rolls of sushi sliced to reveal images on the inside, ran started baking her bread in 2010 when she became pregnant with her son. “first i make the ordinary bread dough, and then i divide it and add colors to create the design,” says ran, who uses natural ingredients like vegetables and cocoa to achieve the different colors. today, her bread designs are inspired by everything from pop culture characters to her son’s drawings, and she teaches others how to make their own loaves in her baking school and with her published cookbook.
join ran in her tokyo kitchen to see how she makes her bread, today on our story and on our igtv channel. to watch igtv, update your app now, then look for the new icon in the top right corner of feed.
