Instagram for Android - Finally

I've been waiting to jump on the instagram bandwagon for what has felt like years. Seeing all my favorite bloggers posting fabulously filtered photos, I've been like that kid who didn't get an invite to the party of the year and watches jealously as everyone else recounts all the funniest moments. It's been that sad.

Now that I have it, I'm loving snapping pics and trying out all the different filters to see what I like best. Mostly I've been using Amaro, Rise, and Nashville.

Here's a little taste of what's been on the other side of my lens.

The bad news is that somehow in the mix of this, all of the photos that were stored on my phone disappeared, minus the ones I've taken since I downloaded Instagram. It didn't happen instantly but about 3 days after I downloaded the app, they were just gone. Of course, the people at the Verizon store said they couldn't help me, that I have to talk with the Instagram folks. Not sure who exactly they are, but I'm looking into it. Has anyone else had this problem?

But even so, I'm quite excited to be snapping and filtering and snapping and filtering. If you'd like to follow me on Instagram, my handle is @ktmadeblog.
