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 24,5 mm (the equivalent of a 54 mm for a full frame camera). Shutter speed: 1/200 of a second. Aperture: f/5.6. The photo was transferred to my cell phone and then processed with the Snapseed app with the Drama filter.

    Great photograph… could make a great cover for a book, dear Otto… Love & best wishes. 😉

  2. nice pattern leading into the photo. I still like walking on that dry ice, making it crack.

  3. oneowner says:

    Very nice photo. I really need to join Instagram!

    Amazing photograph, beautiful light and darkness. I am reminded of crumbling infrastructure, the floating objects pollution of a waterway, the crack in the ice an abyss. So many things come to mind here. Thank you so much Otto, have a wonderful day. Holly

  6. Strongly inviting abstraction of nature…

  7. A really lovely image, Otto. Happy weekend.

    Nice texture image!

    There’s an interesting contrast between the soothing colors and the sharp, angular fragments. There’s a bit of mystery in that black “pathway” in the background, too. It seems to suggest an abyss, and almost makes the surface seem suspended in air.

    • I see what you mean, and I like it. The reality is quite different, but I like anything that more suggests different understanding rather than give away the “real truth”.

  10. This photo reminded me of the burren on the west coast of Ireland. Not because of the ice but because of the layers produced by ice in your photo and limestone slabs in my memory of the burren visit. There is something comforting about a limited colour palette. Another photo, Otto, that makes us think.

    Mother Nature surely provides us with some wonderful subject matter!
    This is so beautifully unique, Otto.

  12. Mother nature’s work of art which you captured perfectly in its complicated beauty.

    it reminds me of that MC Escher pic of fish turning into birds… isn’t that cool? lol i love it

  14. Ice is fascinating. It can look like glass or jewels. It can be beautiful or terrifying. This is a wonderful shot, Otto. You have captured several of ices characters.

  16. Very nice, I am following you now on Instagram. I was wondering what method you use to get your photos like this one to your phone?

  17. seabluelee says:

    Oh, brrrrr, that makes me shiver!

  18. Chillbrook says:

    Superb photo Otto! Just shows what can be done with a relatively simple object. This really works.

  19. It’s so beautiful picture Otto
