[Throwback Thursday 07.11.2013] Before there was Instagram

As Instagram roared its way into the social media seen, we've seen a barrage of food porn and "selfies." But before all this, we were pretty much happy with our old phones's arcane versions of filters and frames, though we may not have played with them as often since, of course, they just stayed in our phones for want of a proper venue for sharing.

Today My Bibe and I are celebrating our 8th year together, so this Throwback Thursday post is an ode to those days of us taking our own photos together--our selfies of old, if you may--when they just stayed in our mobile phones for our own private viewing pleasure. The time has come to upload them.

It was already such fun then playing with all those silly graphics.

Decent photo quality from a Nokia N70, but the graphics, not so much.

That sepia filter is still very much alive today.

Oh yes, we did send this out months later as an MMS Christmas greeting.

To My Bibe Kwittie,

It's been a wonderful eight years. Sure there have been tears and hardships, but what we'll really cherish the most are our good times together, of which we certainly have a lot. We've passed that so-called seven-year itch already and I'm pretty sure that our love and relationship is here to stay. If it's any indication, the number 8 is the infinity symbol.

I love you and will continue to do so. Here's to infinity and beyond!

Love,
Your Bibe Doggie
