Last Week’s Instagram


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. This photograph open up our minds to the possibility of the future and what lies ahead. It is unknown but with the sun shining through the trees we sense hope. It is a lovely photograph on many levels.

  2. Such is the power of the will-o-the-wisp, drawing the unsuspecting deep, deep, deeper into the forest: the path apparently so clear, the destination still unsuspected…

  3. It is interesting you frame the picture with the lady at the bottom edge near the left most of the picture. That gives the feeling of she is embarking into a wilderness and somewhat unknown path. Just uncertain feeling this picture gives. Aside from the story, I like the sun at the other side of the picture that keeps this picture a bit on the brighter side.

  4. Interesting – I like the metaphor for setting out into the unknown. However, just one problem for me Otto….the ladies head is a bit obscured by the darkness of the landscape in that part of the image, and it took me a moment to see that it was a person…probably just my eyes!

  5. This definitely looks like the start of a story. An upbeat/updated retelling of a fairy tale, Angela Carter style. The light on the girl’s shoulders and leg, suggest her setting out hopefully and with purpose. But the shadows in the wood could be saying that there is something darker in store/that all is not what it seems. Love it, Otto.

  6. Molto bella, mi fa pensare ad un sentiero che porta ad una nuova luce, dopo aver vissuto un brutto periodo nel quale il buio ha prevalso su tutto.
    Saluti, Pat

    P.S. Sono un po’ in arretrato con i tuoi articoli, ho visto che hai anche visionato la mia foto e ho letto con molto interesse quello che hai scritto. Appena mi sarà possibile cercherò di recuperare tutto, troppo interessante e importante per me quello che scrivi! Grazie!

    1. Grazie per il bel feedback sul Instagram. Per quanto riguarda il recupero, lo farei; non ti preoccupare, è prendere tempo. Sono comunque molto felice a trovare il mio post in modo interessante.

  7. btw Otto, these pictures are inspiring and did i tell you that i sold my OM-D? i was thinking of quitting photography, i told you that too… but NOW i have an iPhone coming, and looking forward to some lighter fun 🙂
