This Week’s Instagram

Landlig idyll ved Oldenvatnet

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 saw this on Instagram earlier and liked it, but it’s so much better to see it ‘large’. Which App have you used to achieve this effect, Otto? It gives the image a timeless feel and adds to the atmosphere.

  2. I know the house style is different, but there’s almost a hint of a chinese watercolour landscape about the photo composition style.
    Lovely scene.

  3. Oh, yes, I agree with Vicki’s comment above! It does look like a Chinese watercolor….something you’d love to hang on your wall. Really nice, Otto!

  4. It’s a remarkable juxtaposition. On the one hand, the buildings look as though they might have come straight from any American or European farmstead, while the landscape to the left recalls the work of Sesshu Toyo. Perhaps it’s the ink-and-wash effect that does it. You’ve certainly created a memorable image!

  5. Love it!! Truly atmospheric, with more than a touch of mystery….who lived there, what lives did they lead…..past tense because it has a very Vintage feel about it. I gather you used 3 apps to create it – I need to look at exploring creativity like this 🙂

  6. I love how you can choose how to frame these, or at least i think there’s an app for that. Interesting “aged” feel to this.The house is very sharp, really stands out.

  7. I wonder where it was taken, though it could be anywhere… Somewhere in the Alps? This processing gives picture a nostalgic look. I have never used Instagram, but I can see that the results are really astonishing.

  8. For me, Otto, this foto shows on the one side an idyllic surrounding into which the houses have been built and on the other side the danger of a sliding mountain.It shows all the ambivalence of life and it’s beautiful. Many thanks and a good day. Very best regards Martina

  9. how real can such a click be…I wonder! Well I am not into instagramming as yet so don’t quite know much abt what ‘it does’ to pictures that one clicks! been here after a long time. will have to check on all that I have missed out on. Hope you are doing well Otto! Regards!
