Wouldn’t you much rather have living, breathing Paris in your pocket? Be able to see fresh photos taken by the people who live there every day?

If you have an iPhone (or iPod touch with a camera) you should download and install Instagram. It works like Twitter, kind of, only for photos. You can follow real Parisians and wake up every day to stunning glimpses of Parisian life.

    The pictures above are by Instagram users (left to right, top to bottom):

    survet069, alexander0802, seanjk, sakiyamanoaya, pamelapoole (that’s me), april_r, jeanlucr, paulomendonca, kaoruhime, lettherebe, nzphoto, streetstylish

    We used one of lettherebe’s pics in this post recently: http://francophilia.com/gazette/?p=6222, and highly recommend jeanlucr (who does a lot of street art shots).
