- Original photos (ideally taken and posted with a phone, but that's hard to tell sometimes)
- Public profiles, obviously
- Fairly regular posts
- Unpredictable content
- Less than 100k followers
- I find myself liking almost every one of their photos that I come across
- Feed is a document of what they see, not just what they do
- Little to no selfies (feet are OK)
- And of course a good eye
