This happens. (Via the awesome Appelogen blog)
The photo on the left is how it was taken with Instagram, the one on the right is what happens when you apply a filter to it, re-upload, apply a new filter, and so on.
In other words, the photo on the right is Normal + Amaro + Rise + Hudson + Sierra + X-Pro + Lo-Fi + Earlybird + Sutro + Toaster + Brannan + Inkwell + Walden + Hefe + Valencia + Nashville + 1977 + Kelvin (that’s 17 filter effects).
In other other words, it’s Art. Clearly.
