#instameetdallas, 03/24/11


Thursday, March 24, 2011 was Instagram’s Worldwide InstaMeet. In over 300 cities worldwide, Instagrammers met, shot, shared favorite filters, and if yours was anything like the Dallas meet you also picked up a few new friends here in the real world.

The Dallas meet was a group effort with Deep Ellum suggested as the venue by @rutherfordphoto. Meeting up at the Green Line station was suggested by the two Megans and was a great idea, as was burgers and sunset on the rooftop of Twisted Root after we lost the light. The Dallas meet was fun as we walked and shot one of Dallas’ more famous (and infamous) neighborhoods. Instagram is a very social app allowing us to make connections with friends and photographers from around the world. The InstaMeets are a great way to connect with people outside of the virtual world of the app.

Hopefully, your meet was as fun. We’re already talking about our next meet.

Did your city have an InstaMeet? How did it go? Let us know. If your meet put together an InstaMeet book or gallery, share links in the comments below.

Here are just a few of the images taken at the Dallas meet last evening.
