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 really like the composition and how this one guides the eye (quite literally, with arrows on the signs–but the signs themselves are attractive, to boot). Was it colorified? Everything (the pillars) looks greenish. I like it. Ohhh, it’s through a windshield. Got it. I actually like the clutter at the top left of the shot. It creates a space, sort of a cave, for the eye to explore. As always, freeway interchanges are good photo fodder. Well done.

  2. What most intrigued me about this photo is the lack of traffic. For someone accustomed to urban congestion, the effect is striking — almost eerie — and it’s heightened by the presence of the few autos included. There’s a nice implied contrast with CenturyLink Field and T-Mobile Park, too. Reading those names brings up images of thousands of people; perhaps that’s where everyone is!

    You’ve reminded me of Matt Logue’s series called Empty Los Angeles. It’s street photography, too, although in a more literal sense.

  3. Street photography requires a certain readability in the composition that is not easy to obtain when travelling by car. Here, it is perfectly successful, especially for the different motorway lanes that cross each other without creating confusion. As for the colours, the result of the treatment evokes a period that could be that of a world without a future.

    1. Opps. something wrong with the keyboard, sorry…sent too early !
      I like the different levels, motorways crossing each other, the colours and the texture. A scfene similar to what we see in our lives but made special by you. Well done!

  4. Well done, Otto. I can’t help looking at this with the instant reaction of relief that I am no longer driving around Seattle, getting stuck in traffic, on the way to one appointment or another. 😉
