Last week, Apple named Instagram
its iPhone App of the Year. With more than 14 million users worldwide, we figured some Crave readers were sure to count among them, so we put out a call
for your best Instagram creations. You did not disappoint. We've received well over 200 images from around the world--beautiful, melancholic, quirky, color-drenched, black-and-white shots of sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, snowflakes, cityscapes, pets, kids, rusty door handles, old shoes, new haircuts, and much more.
Each day this week, we'll be publishing a gallery featuring five of our very favorite pictures of the bunch. With so many impressive images to choose from, choosing standouts hasn't been easy, but we've done our best.
Our first showcased shot comes from John C. (Instagram user johncornicello), who snapped this picture last month on a foggy morning in his hometown of Seattle. It features the George Washington Bridge, known locally as the Aurora Bridge. John used the Earlybird filter to enhance the effect.
