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 Lumix LX-100 with the lens set at 34 mm (the equivalent of a 75 mm for a full frame format). The photo was cropped, then transferred to my cell phone and processed with the Snapseed app with various adjustments before uploaded into Instagram.

  1. What a great photograph – I can really relate to this cold, winter activity but you’ve make it look beautiful! You’ve so perfectly captured the slope of the road and hint of a mountain behind too.

  2. Ruth says:

    Your photos are always “standouts”! Nice.

  3. Matroos Beek says:

    What a charming photo. Was this taken in Britain?

  4. loisajay says:

    The quintessential Christmas scene. This is beautiful, Otto.

  5. Kathryn says:

    I simply cannot stop looking at this beautiful photo! The fine detail you have captured is mesmerizing, thought provoking and postcard worthy. Merry Christmas Otto and thank you!!

  6. Sue says:

    Brrr! A bit less cold where I am

  7. Leya says:

    Beautifully snowy and both calm and busy feeling in this charming photo. We have no snow so far…or we had, but as usual it is gone again.

  8. Tiny says:

    Looks beautiful! I hope to have a ‘white Christmas’ this year too. Will be in Stockholm in a few days 🙂

  9. Enjoyed the clarity of the image, especially was drawn to the sky and roofs.

  10. Maybe it’s a mountain and not the sky.

  11. bluebrightly says:

    Where winter looks good! The same activity on the streets of New York just wasn’t as rewarding, I have to say, so I’m glad I don’t have to do it any more. But you’ve made it all look beautiful here.

  12. This is a beautiful photograph. It could easily be a Christmas card Bergen is a lovely place!

  13. Heide says:

    I love the dynamism of this image: The fallen snow suggests quiet and stillness, but the (implied) motion of the man clearing off his car tells us this pastoral scene is about to be disrupted. Such a simple moment, but so wonderfully seen …

  14. paula graham says:

    Some are more cold then others! You created something very pleasing to the eye, there is Bergen.

  15. marymtf says:

    We don’t have snow where I live and the older I get the happer I am about it. But I do like your photo. Perhaps it’s the age thing, again, Otto, but I could have done with that person spoiling the landscape.

    From the two sweeps across the hood of the car, I decided he was using a broom and not a scraper. “Broom snow” was a term I grew up with, and we always loved it because it was light and fluffy, and more easily disposed of than anything that came along with ice, or a high moisture content.

    The cars are thoroughly modern, but the homes have an old-fashioned flair to them. It’s rather like Currier and Ives meets Car and Driver: a perfectly satisfying combination that makes for an interesting photo.

  17. Jessica says:

    Lovely! But I am thankful I do not have to shovel snow off of my car right now… Brr!

  18. Phil Vaughn says:

    I like your photo! It reminds me of hand-colored photos that were made when I was very young (in the late ’40’s and early ’50’s) before color film was the norm. It has that kind of tone. I love that “winter chill” I get from your photo, too. Brrr.

  19. Lisa Gordon says:

    Truly a perfect Christmas scene, Otto.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  20. Brrr. I’m torn between thinking happy Christmas thoughts and wishing for spring 🙂

  21. seabluelee says:

    Ah, digging out the car. Not my favorite winter activity, but you’ve made it look very attractive here. 🙂 I love the cheer of the yellow in the snowy, black and white world.

  22. Elaine- says:

    what a beautiful winter scene!! could be Norman Rockwell 🙂

  23. Lovely .. I can see this on a Chrissy card 😀 I’m a big fan of Snapseed!

  24. sherri says:

    the result is fantastic

    love, love those row houses

  26. I love the muted pops of colour in this one. I also appreciate the lovely peppering of snow. I’m afraid we are getting snowed under now.

  27. lighthouse75 says:

    This is a splendid photo, Otto.The color in the buildings on the left contrasting with the relative monochrome of the rest of the scene, the street winding upward through the picture, and the very ordinary activity of the man cleaning his car — lovely.

  28. At first glance I’d say it was a painting. Beautiful.
