TL;DR – Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or is it?
We know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but what happens when it becomes a little too similar?
Remember the much-talked about Instagram copying that shook the (digital) world last year?
Well, it’s happening again… this time round to Asian-Australian (her mum’s Singaporean by the way) fashion and travel blogger, Tara Milk Tea and architecture student Caitie’s Cloud who is also based in Sydney, Australia.
(For background information, @taramilktea has 636,000 followers and @caitiescloud has 9,762.)
Caitie also went to Japan where she took a couple of shots that are rather similar to Tara’s,
Such as in this Harajuku candy store.
And it’s not just limited to the photos,
As a fairly active user of Instagram myself, I get it that we tend to turn to the community for inspiration. I mean, how many ways can you photograph a coffee cup and a plate of French toast?
But I don’t know, these kinda scream too close for comfort. What do you think?
