Somewhere along US 50, Nevada — Making an Instagram from a DSLR image just seems wrong, but I’ve done it nonetheless.
I couldn’t resist.
After all, Instagram is a smartphone app, so logically, the images you use should be taken with your smartphone. At least I think so. Anything else just isn’t a “pure” Instagram.
But when I discovered I’d accidentally uploaded the above image into my smartphone, I knew it would make a cool Instagram.
And it has.
The original image is from a 2011 trip that I wrote about for HOG magazine, titled “Ghosts of the Open Road: Riding the Loneliest Highways in America.” In addition to HOG, it also ran in Motorcycle Bagger Magazine last year.
If you haven’t already guessed, it’s one of my all time favorite road pics.
So, yeah, I broke me own rule against using a DSLR pic for Instagram.
