2013 Instagram Year In Review: January - March

As I did last year, I am going to be doing a Year In Review based on the Instagram posts from my @elasticback account. I am going to do it quarterly, but there are a lot of photos I like, so this won't be too brief. Here is the first installment from January through March of 2013.

Date: 1.1.13
Caption: Why’s your neck strapped tho?
Additional Comment: A couple hours into the new year and this shawty was being strapped in and taken to bookings, all the while yelling at the cops and anyone looking in her direction. Lorimer L/G station, Brooklyn.

Date: 1.12.13
Caption: Laser party in Bushwick!
Additional Comment: What started off as a ramp jam at 561 turned into a full on light show when the lasers came out. I think at least 6 of us had lasers with various colors and effects.
