I took this with Instagram on my iPhone 4S and applied one of their filters. This was at the end of my street around 6:40 am on my way to work, I literally rolled down the window, stopped and snapped this shot. I got lucky, it came out really cool.

The photo was taken in River Falls, WI. I went for a walk down by the small river in town and snapped some quick pictures of the damn and the shots turned out pretty nice. This one was my favorite...

This shot was taken by me at a rooftop party in Peckham (very South of London, UK) — you feel like you're in the party given the depth of people and in the distance is the hugely toward Shard skyscraper being built along with the rest of the city.

I surprised my girlfriend with a trip to San Francisco and proposed to her on the plane.
When we got to the hotel (Hilton Union Square) we went up to the room and it was completely dark in the room.
My girlfriend, now fiance, opened up the curtains to a full view of San Francisco with the Golden Gate Bridge as the centerpiece.
It was her dream come true and I caught the perfect moment on my iphone.

Thanks,

Hey!

When I heard about this week's challenge, I was excited to finally use my Instagram pictures to good use. I took this shot from my iPhone 4 and imported it to the Instagram app. I used some vertical blur and the Early Bird filter. I got this picture of the magnificent Pisa when I was travelling with my family. The day was a perfect one, with visible clouds and a blue sky. Of course, there were many people posing with the Pisa, but I wanted a shot that showed its antiquity and what it actually is - The Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Cheers,

Taken with DROIDX, unidentifiable settings for shot.

Being it so that I am planning on being an architect and hopefully landing a job with Universal Creative, the Universal Parks & Resorts creative team, I am constantly sketching out theme parks, and, obviously, the tools help me get there. I recently finished a sketch and dropped my compass under my French curve, and thought the lighting was good enough for a quick snap. So, with the help of the DROIDX's truly great camera, I got a neat shallow-focused shot with some interesting composition and some nice blues.

My family recently got a English Bulldog, and has been the cutest dog. I should note, it takes a lot for me to say cute. Anyways, Vito (our 9 week old puppy) was sleeping on couch like usually when I found myself eye level with him. I snapped a photo on my iphone and found I had a amazing pic of the new pup. Instinctively, I went to instagram to show him off and used the Inkwell filter. His paws are huge and completely over sized since he is still so small. Along with the huge paws, hes got a lot of rolls, which you can see on his face in this shot. The black and white style filter with the black leather couch behind him made a good background. Needless to say, the photo got a lot of "awwws" from lady friends.

Thanks Giz!

"Morning Coffee"

As per my morning routine, I i got up set the coffee maker and took my dog outside for her morning walk. I came back in and poured my cup of coffee and set it in my living room. I continued to the bathroom and popped in my contacts. I walked back out into the living room and saw the vapors from my coffee dancing in the sunlight that was passing through my front door window. I quickly grabbed my phone and opened up Instagram because I knew I had to capture and share this moment.

This was shot while walking around the Harvard Arnold Arboretum in Boston with my wife, the Magnolia tree had recently bloomed and the flowers were basically perfect.

Took this at a Zac Brown concert in Minneapolis. Just thought it looked cool. My technique? Hold my phone steady and then hipster the shit out of it.

We're having a nasty bout of storms rolling through the midwest today, and I was waiting (well, hoping) for it to calm down some before I went inside. This was from inside my car out the windshield, looking at my apartment complex. The Rain-X on the windshield makes for some gorgeous photos when the weather is bad.

We didn't get a lot of rain this past Winter here in Southern California but this week has treated us to some much needed downpours. Although I despise this weather (mostly due to the idiots on the road), I do enjoy the brief moments of brisk beauty it affords us. I was fortunate enough to catch this huge rainbow (and it's very faint double-rainbow twin) on the way to work the morning the contest was announced. I like to the think that instead of there being a pot of gold at the end of this thing, there's a robot unicorn instead. Enjoy!

Before Instagram, I would never have gone shooting on a sunny, cloudless day. Mid-morning on Friday, the Earlybird filter made something out of nothing. To me, this filtered image more strongly evokes the biplane chase scene in "North by Northwest" than does the "normal" version that Instagram also saved to my iPhone 4S, despite the fact that the normal one is truer to the actual scene in the movie. I think the retro look is partly what took me back to 1959 so quickly. This is straight from the iPhone-no post-processing at all.

Hello -

I happened to be going to The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn this week, so I thought that'd be a good place to take a few shots for this challenge. I liked this one of a spinning wheel and fireplace, which was a setup in an ongoing furniture exhibit there. Unfortunately, my attempts to capture the splendor of an original Wienermobile they have were consistently thwarted by gobs of children on field trips. Taken with Instagram on an iPhone 4S. I think I used the Valencia filter, but I'm not real sure on that.

This picture is from the Southside area of Pittsburgh, PA. What used to be a world-class glassworks and later steelmill region has fallen into decay and neglect. A little revival here and there makes it feel a bit more alive and in recent times students have been coming down to the various bars along Carson St.

Though it's usually overcast and/or rainy, there was brief break in the clouds where the sun was beaming down right on a building's frayed American flag, illuminating the stars. You could almost take it as a metaphor for the district: battered, worse for the wear, and struggling, but steadfast and hopeful.

I was looking through the holes of a vertical blind from my office window, which has a fantastic view of the Pittsburgh cityscape at sunset, and decided to snap a picture of the interesting "spider eye" effect it had on the skyline. (Ignore my complete lack of knowledge on how a spider actually sees). I then threw a filter on it, in true Instagram fashion, and called it a day.

Story: It had been a long day shooting, complete iPhoneography shooting, on route back, the sky caught my eye and it just had to be captured.

As much as I enjoy sailboat racing, attempting to capture some of the more interesting moments on camera is a logistical nightmare... Too much mayhem, too much water, too much doing-more-important-things. So, when I found out that instead of racing this past weekend, I'd be officiating, I was excited at the chance at being able to have a very interesting subject matter for the photo challenge. Much to my dismay, the contest was this one… I hate instagram. To me, instagram is the spatula-applied tranny makeup that makes fauxtographers think their photos are decent. So, when out on the water, I recalled the contest, lazily pulled out my phone, and half-heartedly snapped this pic. In classic instagram fashion, it was cropped down to a square (which I didn't realize when I took it), I slathered it in one of their filters, and cringed when I hit save. Ew.

Photo of the Atlantic from Marineland, FL. Taken with iPhone 4S. Hudson filter, tilt-shift applied post-shoot.

I spent Sunday afternoon driving along the coast with my wife near St Augustine on our way back to Jacksonville. We stopped at a hill next to the Marineland Conservation Center as the tide was coming in. It was a beautiful sunny day and it gave the ocean a nice shade of blue. The hill above the ocean is an unusual perspective along the normally flat coastline, so it seemed to be a opportune moment to use the tilt-shift filter.

Title: Country Roots
Subjects: My red and white short haired border collie named Pixel; and my 1977 GMC pickup truck named Cecil.
While driving down the road I saw this perfect photo op to capture two loves of my life in a unique way. The only way it could have been better is if it had also captured my girlfriend of five years, but she usually doesn't make a habit of riding in the back of the truck with her head hanging off of the driver's side with her tongue flapping in he wind. She only does that on the passenger side. Being from Tennessee, I feel like this picture brings me back to my country roots. Taken with an iPhone and Instagram, I chose the "Sierra" filter for the antique old-timey vibe.

I saw the contest, looked over at the speaker of my computer and thought the texture would be interesting. I lined it up and snapped off a shot. Turns out the light was coming in the window just right for a picture that I rather liked. Shot with my iPhone 4, default Instagram settings. I believe that's the Sutro filter; I forgot to look at it.
