Meet Bill and Jill.

They’re a father-daughter duo out of Dallas, Texas, and Bill Young is a corporate pilot with a passion for photography. Because of his job, he travels around a lot, in different countries, different cities.

And he’s been in a lot of hotels.

He only had 125 followers, but her daughter wanted him to get the love he deserved.

“But I was always surprised he never put in effort to get a whole bunch of followers. He didn’t really care about that. He just really liked carpet, and that made me really happy.”


“He got so excited about that, and it made me so happy how excited he got,”

They were lost in a sea of admirers, with over 430K followers.

And counting.

You rock on, Bill!
