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. I like the faded, light leak/bleached effect in this photo, Otto. It’s difficult to do successfully, and you walked that fine line between doing too much and “needing just a bit more.” It brightens an otherwise potentially dreary scene.

  2. It’s a nice mood – I like the way there is simplicity – in the colro and flat perspective – and complexity, in the multitude of shapes and lines. And also the way a softer effect is sort of pulled down like a shade over a scene with strong contrast.

  3. The first thought that crossed my mind was, “Well, that train’s left the station.” I suppose I’m still affected by the train journey of President Bush to his final resting place. So many people came out to see the train and the coffin, and one of the most notable aspects of the experience was watching people linger at the empty tracks once the train had gone. The bicyclist here seems to carry some of that feeling: of people beginning to turn back to their lives after experiencing an “out of time” moment.

  4. The train is always a bit of traveling for me. The smudgy environment around stations is part of it. Also the crowds and industry. Because I associate the train with traveling, I do not mind in that case. That’s part of it.
