"One of my followers once told me that all the photos I take on Instagram are of walls, so I decided to create a hashtag for it." This is how Tokyo Instagrammer Hisayuki Kanai (@ka_nai) came up with the idea for a unique hashtag to chronicle his wall photos: #ザ壁部, literally meaning "The Wall Club" in Japanese (the English equivalent of the hashtag is #straightfacades). Until very recently, the hashtag project became the center of his life as he searched for good walls to shoot whenever he went out. "For me, taking wall photos is not meant to be 'photography.' I capture walls because it is something I can find anywhere to design a square frame in interesting ways," explains Hisayuki. His work quickly caught the imagination of other community members and the hashtag is now widely used by many Instagrammers across the world. Hisayuki's trick to capturing a good wall photo is to align the camera in perfect parallel with the wall, which, he advises, takes a lot of patience.
