The First Pics Ever Posted On Instagram

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

Saturday marked six years since the first picture was uploaded to Instagram, and whilst some long for those simpler times others would struggle to survive a day without their beloved app.

There are now an average of 60 million photos uploaded daily, but in July 2010 there wasn’t a great deal going on. Although Instagram wasn’t yet available to the public, founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger decided to take it for a spin.

Below, with the help of TIME, are some of their first ever snaps:

1:26 p.m.: Mike Krieger (@mikeyk) posts the first-ever Instagram. It’s a somewhat artsy shot out of a window towards a marina, with tilted framing and what appears to be heavy filtering. As Instagram did not yet have location tagging at this point, it’s unclear where, exactly, Krieger posted from. He did not append a caption.


3:00 p.m.: Krieger then uploads the second-ever Instagram. This time, it’s a picture of co-founder Systrom at his desk. Again: heavy filtering, slightly blurred optics…


3:58 p.m.: Systrom kicks off his own account with a picture of something he captions as “Awesome pins.” To this day, it remains unclear what, exactly, the light-up emoji-like symbols are a part of, where the image was taken, or what Systrom was attempting to showcase with this choice of first post.
I’ll skip forward a bit to the beginning of the end – the first puppy picture:

‘Ol Kevin has no idea what he has just started.
