Can You Tell The Difference Between Instagram and Film Photos?

You've never seen a film camera in your life, have you?

You see, long ago in the shadowy days before the internet, if people wanted to take a picture they'd have to lug around a bulky film camera loaded with only a handful of shots. There was no way to see what your pictures looked like until you waited one hour for the film to be processed. Honestly, things are much better now. Ignorance is bliss.
