There’s pretty much nothing as great as looking at old pictures and remembering those days when you had to get out your camera, put in the film, wind it up, make sure it had BATTERIES, take a picture and then wait weeks to get it developed. Ahh nostalgia. It’s the reason that #tbt or “Throwback Thursday” has gotten so popular on Instagram; Instagram being, in many ways, the direct opposite of taking pictures on a camera using film. Today we’ve decided to get in on the action and share some great #tbt pictures from our friends, readers and co-workers. Want to share yours? Use #kqedpop when you post on Instagram and we just might add you to the gallery!
