Croydon, London in 2005

This is one of my oldest photographs. I took it while at a World of Warcraft guild meetup with friends (Gabi) in London on the last weekend of July 2005. I just put this up now because I wanted to see what a non-Instagram thumbnail looked like. By the time a photograph gets from my phone to the blog it has been compressed a few times:

  1. On the phone when it is taken.
  2. When it cropped and uploaded to Instagram.
  3. When it is shrunk for thumbnail upload.

All those images are soft and grainy at this size, because of compression and crappy iPhone lens.
