A social media shark made his first appearance yesterday on my Instagram:
And then he popped up, in a different pose, on my personal Facebook in a shout out to his place of origin.
“Things we bought at IKEA today: A whisk. A pillow. A plate of Swedish meatballs. A hot dog. A hat and coat rack. A piece of chocolate cake. And a shark. #ikeashark.”
And, finally, in serious black and white, he reflects on his present and future as a social media icon. IKEA shark will return.
Monochrome IKEA shark reacts to finding out that #ikeashark is a real hashtag on Instagram. The news leaves him pensive.
(That really is a real hashtag. Search it to find a lot of IKEA sharks photographed in both domestic and adventurous settings. While you’re on Instagram, please check out my account (@kekiongacomics ) for more of my photographs and odd little captions.)
(This photoshoot with the IKEA shark in the bedding department was the first semi-real project I’ve done with the camera on my new iPod Touch. The color images were taken with the stock camera app, the black and white one with Lenka.)
