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. The foreground and tree on the right almost make one feel it’s like looking through a keyhole of days gone by (with the old buildings).

    1. I agree. Old cities are always something special. Maybe exactly because it’s easy to feel like in a time travel, except for certain modern devices such as cars and cell phones.

  2. The detail that stood out for me immediately was the man in the lower left, standing behind the pole. There’s a cleanness and simplicity to his half-hidden presence that’s an interesting contrast to the ‘clutter’ of details in the rest of the photo.

  3. I did grow up on an old town, sort of miss that environment, and the old houses, where so much peace, and a timeless feeling, I look back with nostalgia. 🙂

      1. Yes, it was, but I was young, and you know how our youth acquire on our memory a sort of magical, romantic attachment to it, that may not survive the test of time if we want to repeat it. 🙂

  4. i learn so much from you, Otto! If I saw this scene out a window all I’d likely see is visual clutter! But when you take the photo and give it a hint of a vintage tone, it’s interesting and attractive to me. I don’t always understand how, but I do take note!

  5. i love how you included the poles in the forefront. it adds balance and a sense of “being there”. the hues are exquisite.

  6. This photograph is like an old page from our memory… Old yet fascinating!!!
    The whole capture is so beautiful. The man sitting under the tree, turning road and I can see the top floor of the building and even sky from there!!
