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.

    It’s a great shot Otto. Moody and atmospheric.

  3. Elaine- says:

    that looks like a very busy boat!! is that the same boat that i asked if it was a paddle wheel? lol i now realize that was a silly question 🙂 nice shot, Otto!

  4. It seems eerie to me, like an empty vessel drifting out of the fog into view. I’m searching for survivors…

    When I first saw some of your photos with tangles of electrical lines or complex rigging, like this one, I wasn’t too sure how I felt about them. As time’s passed, I’ve come to appreciate them more: particularly, the geometric images created by the lines. Triangles are common, but this one even has a rhombus! I thought of you when I came across this article.

  6. I agree with SilkPurseProductions it seems to have an empty abandoned feel to it; I do like the way you have cropped the image

  7. Ghost ship, or ferry maybe 😊

    I love the chaos in this Otto.

    It’s a busy scene, Otto. I’m wondering how it would look if you’d simply used your phone and the photo editing on there. I get very mixed results with mine. 🙂 🙂

    • In this case I would have had to use too much of the electronic zoom to get the same telephoto effect – which would have made for significantly less resolution. And the lighting might have been a bit challenging as well. When lights aren’t difficult and I don’t need to zoom, I often use the built-in-camera in the cell phone with good results.

    I love that — in spite of the busy lines — the image still feels so solid and “grounded” (pardon the non-nautical pun). But like all the best images this one invites a second, longer look by making me wonder what all those ropes and antennas *do.* Can you imagine the captain shouting, “Adjust the antenna! No, the other one! No, not that one … the OTHER one!”? This photo could tell many such stories …

    The glooming sky and fading tone make the picture has a bit eerie look. I feel like this is in the old Twilight TV show.

  12. Jane Lurie says:

    This photo really works with its chaotic lines…looks like a real workhorse. Terrific shot, Otto. That Lumix is a great little workhorse 🙂

  13. mariposa says:

    Great photography!
    Best regards, Heidi

  14. Lisa Gordon says:

    So nicely photographed, Otto!

  15. bluebrightly says:

    I love the palette and processing here.

  16. So many shapes and angles, this really keeps my eyes busy with interesting details.

  17. I love all kind of boats, vessels, ships, canoes, fishing boats…everything which travels on the water! And I like this organized creative Chaos! Love the geometry!As always a good eye behind your camera 🙂

  18. I really like this rather haunting photograph. I want to know the history of this fascinating vessel, I love photos that trigger the imagination and you consistently bring that level of curiosity. Thank you Otto.
