Snow: The ultimate Instagram filter [photos]

    Big snowstorms apply a giant Instagram filter to reality.

    Everyday activities ― riding a bike or jogging ― seem strange.Noisy machines, like trains and planes, go silent. The automatic motions of driving a car or stepping on a bus become intentional.

    The backgrounds of life, the buildings and the bridges, step forward, newly beautified by what is essentially an ordinary winter event.
