A very boring photo, for a very exciting reason.pesos

I had been barking up the wrong tree, trying to address `photo/edit` in order to create a photo post in WithKnown. Going through my old notes, I figured out how to do it through `micropub/endpoint` instead, which makes a whole lot more sense. Probably I should have started there.
Anyway, I know have the bare bones of being able to post automatically to WithKnown from the RSS feed of my Instagram account. Now I "just" need to build out all the rest; read the RSS feed, extract the relevant bits of data, construct the API request and bung it off.
Which will probably take forever, but hey.
Starters refreshed and one used to produce a simple white bread with 5% each whole wheat and whole rye. I’ll use the other one in a day or two, and see to the yoghurt tomorrow.photo
With a little time to pursue this idea, I first upgraded to WithKnown 1.2.2 and then experimented with various API calls. I was able to create a Photo post, which included the description. But no image. At a loss, now, because the image from Bibliogram is definitely available and my RSS reader can see it. So I wonder why WithKnown cannot. Or maybe it can, but then fails to insert the image into the post. Also, apologies for spamming the micro.blog timeline.
I'd certainly pay for an app that used RSS (or similar) to aggregate photographers' streams. Heck, I'd even exert pressure on my own favourite photographer to create a dedicated photo stream. I've kickstartered less promising pitches. h/t @chrisaldrich
