Earth, Air, Fire, Water: Our Twitter/Instagram Favs of the Week

Earth, air, fire, water. The elements are all there, from the migrant crisis to wardrobe confrontations on French beaches to Patrick Fallon’s unavoidably gorgeous Instagram photo from King’s River.  We also see ways we unapologetically alter our cultural landscape (farewell, Stardust) as well as depict it more artistically with a purpose, as Matt Black does with a small house in Iowa. And, of course, the presidential campaign continues to dominate the air, kick up dirt and generate plenty of its own heat. Not to mention, just as much chill humor. Then, the junk food riff (indicative of the wider territory we’re exploring on Instagram) is more for fun.
