article imagePhoto essay: Instagramized photos from Lagos Special

By Samuel Okocha     Sep 29, 2012 in World
Many of us might be used to what Instagram photos, many from western countries, look like. But have you ever wondered how such photos capture the street scenes in Africa? Digital Journal picks Lagos to show how its streets look when Instagramized.
Launched in October 2010, Instagram is a free photo-sharing program that enables users to take a photo, apply a digital filter to it, and then share it with other connected Instagram users. This photo sharing feature makes Instagram a social network.
Initially, Instagram was only supported on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. But in April 2012, Instagram for Android was released. It made it possible for users of devices outside the Apple family to enjoy the service and expanded the population of those who use Instagram. It was reportedly downloaded more than one million times in less than one day.
With a Samsung Galaxy S phone [not the S3], Digital Journal's reporter in Lagos took street shots to give Instagrammers across the world a peep into the Nigerian commercial capital.
Below are Instagramized photos, telling stories of Lagos in its raw and ordinary form.
