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 31.5 mm (the equivalent of a 70 mm for a full frame camera). Shutter speed: 1/160 of a second. Aperture: f/4.5. The photo was transferred to my cell phone and then processed with the Snapseed app with the Drama filter.

  1. Beautiful light and drama in that image, and the rough frame seems to bring more light into it. I’m curious about how long it takes you to transfer the photo to your phone, process it, and post on Instagram (and simultaneously here, or?). I bet you do it quickly.

  2. A fabulous photograph Otto. I am fascinated by lighthouses and this certainly stirs my imagination. I would love to explore this house and beacon , thank you for providing a vicarious tour with this wonderful photo. !

  3. The foto is very artistic,i like the way you play with colours. It could have been also a nice idea not to use the cell phone app’s filter.Nice feed in general also.

  4. So many lighthouses have been replaced by more modern technology, I’m wondering if this might be a historic lighthouse that’s been moved, or at least restored, and is out of service. There’s just something about it that reminds me of Texas lighthouses that now reside in parks. It’s a beautiful thing. I’ve always fantasized about being a lighthouse keeper, and this one would suit me just fine.

    1. Like you, I have always been fascinated by lighthouses. Many years ago I worked for a maritime magazine for which I was lucky enough to be sent out to visit and photograph many of the lighthouses in Norway. This one I have depicted here, is standing within the borders of Seattle, and just after I took the photo, the light went on. So I believe it’s still operating.
