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. OK, either she’s ecstatic about being in that place, or she’s demonstrating how wild the scenery is….. 😊😊

  2. Her pose fits perfectly with the angularity of the rocks, and helps to connect her to the scenery. Too often, landscapes and seascapes are only backdrops; here, everything fits.

  3. I’m fascinated by the light from the clouds more to the left than center. I need to see it on my computer monitor instead of my phone. Something is lost for me seeing such art on my mobile. Of course, first preference would be to see it in person!! Someday for sure. Thanks for posting. Really beautiful. I think she’s in joy. I cant see it any other way. I wont. 😊

  4. Your changing perspective on your ultimate interests in nature photography as opposed to your humanitarian work (or in my general case, just humans in general) resonate with me. I have a great interest in nature photography but find myself doing less of it and, instead, trying to be more observant of it without a camera. For me, the reason isn’t that a given subject has been already photographed time and time again, but that I keep on looking for that photo opportunity that might be new, different, or have more impact. Nature photography isn’t necessarily mundane, but my goal is to seek a different presentation. I love your photo of the big sky, wide open sea, and those tiny humans near the surf line.
    It speaks to me of the immensity of nature as well as our place in it…and responsibility for it, too. Perhaps your humanitarian work has that connection with your nature photography. Your article is “real.” I appreciate learning of your thoughts and practice very much. Thanks, Otto. Best wishes, Phil.

  5. This is a fun photo! Feel the fun! Once again I’m drawn to the photos that have muted tones but then pull in the “pop” of color, as in the blue clothing around her waist! Charming photo, Otto.
