Believe It or Not, the First Photograph Uploaded to Instagram Was of Neither Food nor Sunset

It may surprise you to learn that back in July 2010, three months before the official public launch of the $1 billion photo-sharing app we're all come to know so well, the project then known simply as Codename uploaded it's first test photo photo—a happy-looking blonde dog and a *woman's right foot in Teva sandal.

That's right. No grapefruit mimosas. No crimini mushroom quiche. No muesli. No setting sun.

Just a dog and flip flop, setting the stage for what would quickly become the world's largest and most diverse catalog of breakfast foods and sherbet-colored skies. [Instagram]

*This, to me, indisputably resembles a female foot. But if you really want to debate this small fact, so be it.
