An Instagram Wedding
In mid-August, Instagrammers @kimathomas and @colerise photographed a wedding at San Francisco City Hall with just iPhones and Instagram. The couple — @jonathanbuckley and @blynnsfbay’s — met and fell in love in SF, and they wanted a wedding day full of the things that make The City so wonderful, including a number of local start up influences. (Betabrand provided the bride’s dress; Uber supplied the transportation).
Altogether, Kim and Cole took over 550 photos of the event, and edited them all in Instagram, the majority with the Rise filter, a few with Amaro, and 2-3 with Hudson and Valencia. Kim carried an iPhone 4s, a backup iPhone 4, a charger, an SLR Mount and a 50mm f1.4, a Glif Plus and an Olloclip. To see more photos of the event, check out Kim’s blog and her Instagram photos.
I Have a Dream
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’”
On August 28th, 1963 — 49 years ago today — Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a 17-minute public speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial looking out on the Washington Monument to 200,000 civil rights supporters where he called for racial equality and an end to discrimination.
This historical event, now known as “I Have a Dream Speech,” has been commemorated with an inscription on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial from which King delivered his speech. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial was opened to the public just last year in Washington, D.C. and is within the Lincoln Memorial’s sightline.
