Even through the downpour, Instagrammers flocked to Long Island City for an early morning celebration this weekend.
Just two days before Instagram’s four-year anniversary, members of the photo-sharing app met up in different cities around the world on Saturday to snap mobile photos and share stories for the 10th Worldwide Instameet using the hashtag #WWIM10.
According to organizers, about 70 Instagrammers from the tri-state area put on their rain boots, got out their umbrellas and met up bright and early Saturday at the Pepsi Sign in Gantry Plaza State Park.
Photographers David Krugman and Jose Silva captured the moment on their separate Instagram profiles. Both accounts also feature short videos of the day.
“Torrential rain couldn’t hold us down,” wrote Silva in one photo showing the group of Instagrammers standing in the rain at Hunter’s Point South Park, right next to Gantry Plaza.
