instagram, my new favorite app

The older I get, the more I seem to enjoy older things. Not things intended for older people, mind you. Rather, things that were once new, but are now old and considered “old fashioned.” Antiques without the stuffiness. If its hay day was between 1920 and 1960 I’m all about it these days. That’s why I LOVE taking photos with this new app: Instagram.

Instagram allows you to transform everyday photos taken with your iPhone into works of art. Most often giving them that “old timey” look and feel. The app is 100% free and comes with heaps of custom filters, borders and depth-of-field options to make your photos as unique as you.

I’ve created a tumblr page ( InstaBAM! ) that’s dedicated to these photos. I publish a photo directly to tumblr which in turn posts to my Twitter and Facebook feeds. Instant syndication.

Here are a few of the pictures I’ve taken:
