London by instagram

We live in an age where our photos reflect reality more than ever. And yet, as our cameras become more advanced, lenses improve, and our shots more focused, many people in my life seem to be drawn toward an iPhone app that does the opposite. Instagram brings back that nostalgic feeling that photos used to give us. It blurs the edges and alters our photos to look more like our photos from the past. Our fast moving life styles are making us nostalgic for the present.

Yesterday, Jonathan and I rented bikes to spent an afternoon exploring new parts of the city. As an experiment, I decided to leave my digital camera behind and spend a day capturing London purely by Instagram.

A little atmosphere music

    I love Neal’s Yard! I love that crane (it nearly got covered up by a town council poster but a petition saved it)! Nice photos. 🙂 (I love Instagram!)
