The Egg-Shaped Square

Okay so this post has got nothing to do with egg-shaped squares, except that Instagram images are square and I saw this amusing and intriguing translation in an MRT station in Kaohsiung.I’ve been reaching for my iPhone often on the last week, despite having a Nikon D4 and Leica M-E to call on. There’s something about the constraints – square aspect, 50mm(ish) lens, no depth of field effects – and the immediacy of shooting editing and sharing almost instantaneously that make shooting Instagram so much fun. It is the Lomo of the digital world, but a hell of a lot cheaper to shoot.
