Last Week’s Instagram

Fuktighet kondenserer

Since my last post where I talked about the problems I—and the whole media business as such—is facing, I have received so much encouraging and positive feedback, I want to thank you all for such a wonderful response. I have used the week since to get started working on my new projects and feel good about it. However, it’s always a little scary to throw yourself into deep water. Either you learn to swim or you sick. I plan to do the former, but I guess this week’s Instagram is telling for my situation or my feeling.

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 (well I guess I gave some comments this week), hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Facts about the photo: The photo was taken with my cell phone processed in the app Snapseed.

    Otto–don’t sweat the small stuff?! That’s the first thing I thought of when I saw this photo. You are so clever.

  2. Otto, I’m sure you can swim and probably you’ll enjoy the swim as well 🙂
    Now the picture telling your feelings…hmm I see something not so clear, but I also see art in it!
    Don’t forget, you are an artist !

    Lykke til – jeg går ut fra at bildet var tatt rett ut vinduet en av de siste dagene? 🙂

    I love the abstract and simplicity of this photo. Snapseed is still one of my go to favorite apps!

    Change is scary… The devil you know is trying to hold on to you but…there are Angels out there!
    Your blog is so important to so many…to me too…scary in itself I presume!! Slay the devil.

    I think this shows you’re on the right track, in spite of the “tears” because it is a strong expression of your feelings – you are very good at that, and it will serve you well! Best of luck to you as you grow into new practices.

    The same rain that obscures our view of the world nourishes the world — who knows what unseen growth is taking place?

    Glad to hear that you’re entering into new projects! I wish you all the best with them, Otto 🙂 As for the photo, is it of a shower glass door or a window? Inquiring minds want to know 😉

    At times like this I get out my quote books and read my favorite ones to help me through. For me Winter has come full force and it is very cold. Always the hardest time of the year but that’s fully I ski and run outside so it helps me get over the cold and gray days!

  12. I feel like my cell phone is letting me down after seeing this shot. Beautiful!

  13. Roland Theys says:

    Créative photo, very nice Otto

  14. Otto, you are a very good “swimmer” !!!!!

  15. Chillbrook says:

    Fascinating image Otto! Love it! 🙂

  16. YellowCable says:

    That is interesting image and I like it. For some reason, this is an image triggers the feeling of satisfying thirst even I do not actually drink anything. It just gives the felling to you. Great capture.
