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 10,9 mm (the equivalent of a 24 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. The sky and the flag complement one another well. I like the dark tones, and the sweep of the landscape.

    The flag interested me for another reason. I recently visited a Danish community here in Texas. They have a fine museum, and the Danish flag was flying. I noticed that this Norwegian flag resembles it: the Danes have a white cross on a red background. I already knew that the Swedish flag is a simple yellow cross on a blue background, and when I went to look at Iceland’s flag — what a surprise! It’s a red and white cross on blue.Those similarities suggest more than a single nation’s patriotism — they also suggest commonalities in the heritage of all those countries. Do you know if there was a common flag “ancestor” that preceded all these same-but-different flags?

    1. I do not know the answer to this question, but I might have to try to find out. I think you are right, anyway, the similarities between the flags reflects the connection there has always been the Nordic countries (also the Fins have a cross for a flag, blue on white). Through history we have all been under the rules of some or all of the other Nordic countries.
