DIY Instagram? Not Exactly.

If your phone is "dumb" like mine, you can still create your very own, beautiful, low tech Instagram photographs. All you need is a film camera (In this case a Nikon F3 - but any old point and shoot will do) and a roll of expired Kodak Gold Max 400 - preferably one that has lived in a shoe box since 1998, when you graduated and moved into that $400/month Adams Morgan group house OR, if you are 19, one that has lived in a shoe box that your mom has owned since 1991, when rent was only $200/month.

Extra points for getting the print shop to scan your film full frame and without removing the dust.

To illustrate the effect, here are a few shots from a pumpkin picking day last fall with neighbor Martha and her daughter Eddy. I know, not very instant, but isn't the memory of a cool fall day a nice discovery now that the DC summer heat is here for a while? Can you think of a better use for an old roll of film?

Individual results may varry.

And of course there were pygmy goats.
