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. 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.

  1. There’s a bit of a paradox here. I like the ‘proper’ ships in the fore- and middle ground that help give the composition a vintage feel. Yet it is they that seem to have more ‘staying power’ than the big modern cruise ships in the background which look ephemeral by contrast. Love the muted sea-side shades.

  2. The size of those ships is pretty overwhelming. I recently saw an image comparing the Titanic to a cruise ship of today. The Titanic looked like a little tug boat. These luxury cruise ships of today are like floating cities all by themselves.

  3. The image is beautifully framed. Looking through the rigging is like looking through a window to a future that would have been unimaginable to sailors from an earlier time.

  4. I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but a lot of artists who aren’t hyper-realists don’t consider it a compliment when someone says “wow, that looks just like a photograph”. So here I have to present the reverse opinion and hope it doesn’t offend the photographer: that gorgeous photo looks like a painting!
