You may have noticed the pretty tile pictures that flooded my Instagram feed last month when I visited Lisbon. There were so many beautiful, vibrant details at every turn and I just couldn’t get enough of them! My SD card quickly filled up and I completely lost my bearings around the labyrinthine streets, repeatedly being lured by pretty colours down quiet alleyways, discovering the city without a map or any particular destination in mind. That’s the best way, isn’t it?

All of the intricate details I captured made me curious about what details you had captured on your travels, so it was only right that this month’s Instagram Challenge had a #MyDetailCapture theme. There were so many wonderful posts in the challenge of details from all over the world that, as always, it was tricky to narrow down this roundup to only ten, but here they are. Congratulations to all the featured Instagrammers and if you like what you see here, you might like to follow along with these globe wanderers on their journeys.
