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. 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 lens for a fullformat camera). The photo was transferred to my cell phone and processed first with the Snapseed app with various adjustments before uploaded in Instagram.

  1. What’s most interesting to me about the photo is the memory it evokes of similar trollies, with the wires overhead. I know that I’ve seen them somewhere, but I don’t know where, or when. It may even be a memory from childhood. The vagueness of the memory complements the image’s almost dream-like appearance, and the haunting question it evokes: what lies around that bend?

  2. I think I’m repeating what others have said, but the processing left the impression that this is possibly an old, historic photo. It’s fascinating. I’m always trying to avoid the overhead wires in my photos, and you’ve made them central, giving the photo its character.

  3. all those wires about the street remind me of cable cars, do you have cable cars where you live? beautiful shot by they way, like a glimpse back in time xox

  4. I really like the tones of this photo, Otto. The building is inviting and seems of another era. The wires tell me to get my nostalgia under control. A story in a photo!
