Instafood, Instagram and Foodie Followers

The Tony Burgess Blog

All of a sudden a lot of food bloggers are following me on Instagram. Sure, I post a good amount of food related articles on all my social media but that doesn’t make me a food blogger. My pictures of what I am eating or drinking are just something I enjoy doing. Everyone eats something so sharing it with the world is fun. I appreciate the interest from these foodies but I just hope they won’t be disappointed. I appreciate all who follow me everywhere whether it be food or faith or fun or film. Bon appetit.

My sweetie pie Angel

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Wednesday 7th September

My sweetie pie Angel

A bright shooting star

Way up in heaven

It does seem so far.

You’re thought about often

And your name I speak

Searching for signs

My sweetie pie Angel

My darling son

Gone too soon

Precious little one.


Harbour railings and blue sky

Little fluffy clouds

Sunshine and shadows in the bottom garden

Hydrangea flowers peeking through the fence
