This Week’s Instagram

Breiflabben på Bryggen

Once a week I will show one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week. It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. The pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

  1. I have no experience with Instagram, but this photo stand very well on its own with the lines and pattern. . It makes me curious about what it is.

      1. In fact, I thought about that one, but didn’t recognize the background. I even have a photo of the artist (Alessandro Pavone) working on St. Sunniva sculpture nearby.

  2. I’ve thought about Instagram too. I like that you keep to one image per week. That’s a reasonable commitment. I also like that you give the image center stage without any comment to allow the viewer to immerse in your capture. What is the biggest advantage for you to be on Instagram? Thanks.

    1. The biggest advantage is probably its inherent playfulness. It’s simply fun in a different and much easier way than my traditional approach to photography. And the result is always fun, too.

  3. Interesting one.
    Looks like a covered object floating in mid-air (to me). I guess I don’t recognise the subject at all.

  4. Not easy to identify but it does make for a fun photo…whatever it is… which I gather is a sculpture?

  5. that looks like a sea monster that has lurched into the perimeter of the city and is looking for homeless people to eat…. just sayin’ 🙂

  6. I see you´ve been to Bergen. “Vått og kaldt og breiflabb over alt”. 🙂


  7. Looks like a grumpy fish to me! 🙂 Amazing how you work your magic with a phone as well…love the texture and detail!

  8. My first thought was fabric. Then maybe a rock sculpture. Then even some multimedia deal with what appeared to be text lettering in the foreground. Definitely a conversation piece.

  9. Oh, my. I see the fish now, and yes, it’s clearly a monk fish. But at first glance, I was certain it was a shelter constructed by an urban homeless person. The fish is ever so much better. Best of all? I’m past my first cataract surgery, and have a fresh new lens for near vision in one eye. As wonderful as your photos have been in the past, they’re even more enjoyable now!

      1. It’s the fish I love best and I know somebody who brings it to me, not frequently, fresh from the sea, without any treatment . It’s just gorgeous. I wish you a pleasant weekend.

  10. I see that others also saw it as a frog! Once I saw the frog I had trouble seeing the monk fish, but do now. I think that you find such interesting ways to share your love of photography and you get more out of Instagram than most,. Instagram is a fun way to share with others, too. 🙂

  11. Fantastic! I love Instagram but always forget to use it or try it. I have some posts but it isn’t well developed. What is your Instagram name? If I am not following you, I will subscribe!
