If you've seen one you've seen them all. Photography Instagram pages are supposed to display the unique perspectives of artists captured through their lenses, but if you follow enough of them you might observe an odd trend of deja vu shots - and you would be right. 'Insta Repeat' is an Instagram page that documents the repetition of the same shots found on the app in side by side compilations. Perhaps this story might feel like deja vu, that's because we introduced 'Insta Repeat' last year. The page now has 303k followers.

Created by an anonymous 27-year-old from Anchorage, Alaska, the filmmaker and artist told Photoshelter that “A purpose of Insta Repeat is to critique originality in media creation through the lens (pun intended) of this one ‘genre’ of Instagram photography accounts.”

Living in Alaska, a vast wilderness where so many 'adventurers' come to explore, she was struck by how the same few places and scenarios kept showing up again and again on her feed of beautiful pictures. “I have noticed it in general on a lot of different platforms and media and have been guilty of it myself for sure,” she told Bored Panda. “Artists and creators fall into patterns. But I think that what is happening on Instagram is more extreme.” Scroll down below to see the newest insta repeat photos and don't forget to upvote your favs!

I don't think this is as bad as some of the others, I think taking a picture of a person in front of pretty scenery is a pretty common way to take pictures, in and outside of Instagram

Under-25-year-olds use Instagram 32 minutes a day compared to that of people 25 years and older who use it 24 minutes per day. This is more than before thanks to Instagram Stories. This update is another reason the app has managed to surpass Snapchat.

Again, I don't think these are a bad or an Instagram fad, I think taking pics of someone in the woods is pretty normal and doesn't mean they're copying each other.

I've found for myself a good rule: before doing something potentially dangerous ask yourself if people would laugh after reading the cause of death on your tombstone.
