Like many of you, I enjoy messing around with old cameras.  This one fell into my lap recently and I particularly like the lens cap.  I just love anything Olympics.  🙂

As for the treatment of this photo – it was intentionally meant to bring up thoughts of Instagram.  Not sure if I succeeded with that – since I have checked it out and chosen not to use it – I am no expert.  I am however (finally) sure of one thing – I don’t like Instagram.  At least not when my favorite photogs (whose work I so admire) use it.  Is it just me that thinks once those filters are thrown on that despite some great compositions the photos still all look so generic?   Of course, everything is subjective in this arena, I know.  For me, though, know that the reason I’m not plussing or cheering or (gasp!) liking all over your Instagram photos is because in the ocean of those square, filtered shots, nothing really stands out to me.
