That it was captured over the "phone" rather than a D4; drawn or painted with hoghair or sable, crayola or Sennelier... filtered at the point of capture, the darkroom, photoshop or... instagram. How can this matter?
Some protest, there are just SO SO many images being flung upon theses streams; they all look the same! I simply say to this... Well, I'm having a hoot re-imaging all my old images into filtered little squares; AND isn't it nice that maybe 10, 12 or 24 people out there are getting a little enjoyment along with me, even if just for an instant, rather than these images laying buried under 60,000 shots of my son in some long forgotten folder in iPhoto?
Sharing an image, a moment a thought, even an odd feeling... I do believe that's what André Breton and Ansel had in mind; I mean, they weren't selling cameras.
NOW the instagram as an Ad-platform? For Pete's Sake! (we'll get around to that later :)
@mashygogo over there on instagram if you have any interest at all
