Last Week’s Instagram

Restene av fjøsveggen til Kobbeltveit bruk nummer 4

Once a week—or every so often—I will display 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. Except for the technical details beneath 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.

Facts about the photo: Taken with Canon EOS-5D and a 16-35 mm lens set at 28 mm. Exposure: A shutter speed of 1/200 second and an aperture of f/14. The image is actually two photos, processed and put together in Photoshop, and then further processed with the apps Pixlr-o-matic with the filter Bob and Camera Zoom FX adding a Heavy Vignette. Finally in Instagram the frame from the Inkwell was added.

  1. Perhaps it was the combination of rock and human that brought it to mind, but my first thought was to title this one “Sisyphus Takes a Rest.” Instead of seeing a crumbling building and a fading man, I saw a fellow who’d been building, and finally decided it might be time to pause in the heat of the afternoon. We’re moving into summer heat here now, and my own schedule is shifting to accomodate full sun at midday, so that could have influenced my interpretation!

    1. My idea was quite close to your interpretation, although not quite the same. But I always enjoy hearing what others get out of my work, and that’s why I usually don’t say what my intentions were. Thank you for your feedback, Linda.

  2. We all get a little tired from building our walls. The sheer exhaustion that the man seems to exude while resting can easily symbolize the struggle we have putting our stones in place. It makes me want to take him some water and say, “it’s high enough”.

  3. interesting merging with the other apps. at first glance, I felt rather distracted with it.. it took some adjusting .. but in reading your comments, it fell into place.. good creative thinking …

    1. I believe that art or photography shouldn’t always be easy to read. Challenging the audience is good. 🙂 I am happy it fell into place for you. Thank you for commenting.

  4. Fascinating photograph, “ruins”, that is what immediately came to mind on seeing this. Rather than building rocks, I imagine this to be artifcact gradually disentegrating, the man symbolic. Well done!

  5. Gives us lots to wonder about; where is he, why is he crouched by the side of the wall, is he posing or did you stumble across him! I realise you ‘created’ this shot but even so…that is the effect it gives

  6. Love the photo. I took a couple of double exposures while on holidays. Might post them in my next blog. Love this kind of images, always a surprise 🙂
