Instagram picture

If I only knew then what I know now about photo sharing.

Found this little blast from the past in box of photos yesterday.

When I was working at Playboy Magaine, this was our version of @instagram before there was @instagram.

1995 disposal camera that was mailed to anyone one who wanted to submit images for the 40 anniversary search.

Complete directions on the back on how to take a “selfie” before there was a selfie.
