This is Now is a site that compiles city-specific streams of Instagram photos as the photos are posted. The streams serve as a kind of fast-paced visual storyline of what is going on in a given city right now: try New York City, Tokyo, and London. This is Now was created by Lexical Gap in Australia.

And then when, if you wanted money you had to go in the bank for (yes) when it was open for like three hours. You had to stand in line, write yourself a check like an idiot, and then when you ran outta money you just go, well I can’t do any more things now (yeah, right) I can’t do any more things (that’s it, yeah) that was it.
