The Philly Instagram Hall of Fame: The 15 Shots Everybody takes

Be honest: How many are you guilty of?

Philadelphia, like most cities populated by smartphone users with a little too much time to kill, boasts a thriving Instagram community, and its members are not afraid to show off their surroundings.

We have the pleasure of living in a photogenic town, rich with opportunities to pic-share stuff more interesting than dashboard thermometer shots and butchered Starbucks cup names. But with so many active ‘grammers out there flexing their Valencia, Sutro and Earlybird skills, it’s only natural that some shots are cropping up more frequently than others.


Here, in no particular order, is a rundown of the Philly-centric Instagram shots I come across the most. Let me preface this roundup by stating for the record that I'm personally guilty of most, if not all, of these moves. Now join me in celebrating the Philly Instagram Hall of Fame's inaugural class.

    We should take more pictures of our dogs and the food we’re eating instead.

    I too am guilty of most of these. Another addition: the lights on Addison Street. That shot frequents my feed a whole lot.
