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: 1/160 of a second. Aperture: f/5.6. The photo was first processed in Lightroom then transferred to my cell phone and futher processed with the Snapseed app with the Drama filter, the Vintage filter and the Vignette tool—tweaking all parameters quite extensively.

    If it weren’t for the modern cars, the retro feel of this image would have me transported back to the 1970s, Otto….I like it!

    A breathtaking sight Otto, wonderful shot!

    I looked up the phone number, and I think I know exactly where you were. You ought to offer this to the car dealership — what a wonderful advertising campaign they could build around it!

    • If you came to North Bend, State of Washington, you got it right. As for the ad campaign, not a bad idea, actually. Thanks, Linda.

        That’s it: Chaplins North Bend Chevrolet. The phone number caught my eye because they didn’t have a full ten digits. I wondered if it was a really old business — but apparently they don’t always use area codes out there.

    There’s a familiar place! 🙂 I missed the rainbows the other day, though I know they were around. As usual, you put your own stamp on this image – it has a certain style that is recognizably yours. Great to meet you Thursday, it was inspiring. I need to send you information about a few places – haven’t forgotten!

    Wow, a rainbow that looks like a lightning strike! A fun and interesting photo in so many ways!

    This is beautiful, Otto!

  13. That shot really does look “vintage” to me. Then I read that you did use a “vintage” filter. It certainly does the job. There is something magical about capturing a rainbow and this shot proves it.

    • Like most people I am fascinated with rainbows, but more often than not, I find it hard to make a photo out of it. Here the landscape and the little town adds that extra bit of interest.

  17. I love the open shelving, it is so simple and easy to see exactly where everything is. The trend seems to follow the pared down spending people are doing these days. Is going simple going to be the new trend?
