Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPLineMeetsCorner

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This weekend, we were inspired by Samah El Ali (@poeticwordvomit)’s precise compositions and the #linemeetscorner hashtag that Geof Newsum (@slowjam98) created for them. The project’s tag was #WHPlinemeetscorner, which asked participants to create photos where at least one line meets the corner of the frame. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, and be sure to check out the rest here.

actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)

AS SOON AS I SAW “HAND ANKLE” (Handgelenk) I KNEW THESE WERE GERMAN TO ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS.

I choose to believe these are accurate - mainly because in my experience there are only 100 originating words in German and all other words are just mashups of those 100 in varying order.

Here’s an Otocolobus manulnature’s Grumpy Cat — discovering a camera trap outside it’s den. Camera traps are used by biologists to lean about rare animals’ behavior, abundance, and health — just by setting up a solar-powered camera with a motion trigger. No physical trapping necessary.

O. manul (also known as Pallas’s cat) is about the size of a house cat, but you’ll notice has round pupils instead of slits. It lives in western China and the steppes of Central Asia.

You’d think that Pallas’s cat would rule the internet by now - but there aren’t too many photos of them because they are both rare and shy. The IUCN lists them as near-threatened. Just another reason to support species conservation!
