Alabama has been bugging me to get Instagram for quite a while.  Finally, and a little reluctantly, I signed on.  But then something crazy happened!  I got 500+ followers in the first day -- without even posting a photo!

So then the pressure was on.

What would my first photo be?  And then, when I finally settled on a first photo, what filter would I use?

Gah... I don't need this kind of stress in my life.

So I just started snapping photos on the ride back to Lansing from Jackson yesterday to see if I could come up with anything.  When I scrolled through my phone today, this picture jumped out at me.

With a little help from some (obvious) Instagram professionals, I selected my first filter -- Lo-Fi.  I also pushed that sun button, I assume it brightens the picture, but I'm not really sure.

What I didn't do (because I apparently missed the prompt) was caption the photo.  But here it is in all it's Instagrammy glory,  taken along 127 between Jackson and Lansing, somewhere near Leslie I think... and I'm not gonna lie, I love this picture.
