Stone seems to live the kind of life that Instagrammers everywhere dream of: lots of beach vacations (complete with fruity cocktails), camera-ready brunch tables and plenty of flowers. A few swipes through, and you’ll be picking up bouquets on your way home from work – and snacking on avocado toast for dinner.

Marnie steals the spotlight again. 🍦🐶

Knapp’s a traveler with a beautiful eye – and a beautiful dog. His bright, airy pictures feature anything from a grafted wall to an open field, and often cast his dog in the starring role.

Carin Olsson
Her page is called “Paris in Four Months,” but luckily for her followers, Olsson has lasted a lot longer than four months in the French capital. Her whimsical snaps give ‘grammers a taste at what day-to-day life is really like in Paris – with a filter, of course.

Hey New York I love you but I'll be right back. Can you guess where I'm going. Here's a hint 🔮🏰🐀

Flew overnight and woke up to 135K followers, I can't even believe it!!! Thank you to all of you, for following along with me on this crazy journey of balancing a travel career with life and love in NYC. But for the next little bit, I've traded the sailboats of Long Island for the speedboats and gondolas of Venice, Italy. Or, Venezia 🇮🇹 And how funny since I was just in a Venetian gondola in Minnesota of all places! This is @dante.vincent's first time in Venice and half the fun for me is just watching him discover it all. We're staying at my favorite hotel in the city, @TheGrittiPalace and we plan to take a day trip to Burano. But first, we're just walking the canals and trying to find those hidden piazzas where the throngs of tourists don't go. #SPGAmex

Warning: visiting Alana’s account will induce major feelings of wanderlust. The photographer travels everywhere from Italy to Montana, and takes lots of crystal clear photos along her way.

I shared a really similar image a few days ago but couldn't help but post this one too. I am constantly amazing by how important light can be for a photo. This stretch of river below El Capitan was covered in fog.. ultra glassy and had a unique warm glow. We almost didn't want to drive into the Valley this morning because of the fog seemed so thick. But it made this unique scene with just the top of El Cap sticking out.. It was swirling and changing constantly. It only took a 15 minute loop through the valley floor to come back and have it be completely different, with all sorts of color and look all its own. It things like this that keep me coming back to shoot the same places time and time again. The ability to see them in a different light.

McKnoulty’s feed is all about capturing the little things – whether that’s a confetti toss in front of a row of Amsterdam canal houses or an old pair of friends catching up on the beach.
