Lovingly called Real Life Instagram, this collection of photos by Bruno Ribeiro play on the concept of Instagram and applies it to real life, resulting in clever little gems like the one you see above. From Laura E. Davis' article in the Los Angeles Times:

If you’ve ever walked down the street, spotted a photo opportunity and thought, “I wonder what that would look like on Instagram,” artist Bruno Ribeiro might be able to help you.

He created cardboard frames that have all the makings of an Instagram post: the screen name, the like and comment buttons, the location tag, the hashtags and, of course, the filter -- made of colored cellophane. Then, he posted them in London and Manchester, England, making the objects behind them look like a filtered Instagram photo.
