It's time that we all just admit that the Instagram application for iPhone and Android actually take mediocre cell phone pictures and transmutes them into horrible, ugly images.
I know people think it's kitschy and cool to take a photo on your smart phone that looks like it just fell out of your dusty old photo album from 1978, but the truth of the matter is, I've yet to see a photo posted from Instagram that's worth looking at. I know no one wants to admit this, because its "cool" to put filters over your crappy phone pics, but why do we have such a strong nostalgia for old crap?
|Not a bad picture. Not a great one.|
|Wow. It feels like this picture was taken circa 2009.|
There's a reason Poloroid cameras are basically extinct. They sucked. No one expects a smart phone to take great pictures, but it never ceases to amaze me how the public is fooled into not just settling for mediocre, but praising it as something spectacular and new.
|The only thing better than tomorrow is yesterday.|
|Look at my bedroom. It's so vintage.|
