Last Week’s Instagram


Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week (this photo is actually more than a week old, but I haven’t posted any new material 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: The photo was taken with a Panasonic Lumix LX-100 with the lens set at 34 mm (the equivalent of a 75 mm for a full frame camera). Shutter speed: 1/125 of a second. Aperture: f/2.8. The photo was transferred to my cell phone and then processed with the Snapseed app with the Drama filter.

  1. Just shows you, how little, but just right, how simple, but just enough is often more enduring than £10.000 spent on travel to foreign exotic parts of the globe.
    Wabi-Sabi is now my motto!

  2. The personification of winter, the crunch of dried leaves folding into themselves, awaiting regeneration, a beautiful photograph as always Otto, thank you. Holly

      1. We have had a warmer than usual winter, the flowers have continued to bloom with hardly any noticeable lapse, seasons seem to fade into the next. Have a beautiful day Otto, wishing you a speedy Spring. 🙂

  3. I love how the stem in the foreground of your image has a “ghost” behind it, running parallel through the whole image. It creates both depth and a sense of harmony. Just beautiful, Otto!

  4. I’ve an impulse to take one of those leaves and crush it — I can hear the crackle, and feel the cold shattering. Even though the leaves clearly belong to the same tree (or shrub, perhaps), the variety among them is interesting. No leaf curls in exactly the same way.

  5. Nice subtle tones. I like the way the lighter, curled-up underside contrasts with the top side of the leaves. I admire their tenacity in clinging to the branch this far into winter. I feel a bit like that myself! 🙂
