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. This is a riveting shot. And for me, a person that doesn’t downhill ski but has always wondered what it looks like from high up on the mountain…well…now I know why I don’t downhill ski!

  2. I like the blue of the jacket and the green of the trousers chiming with the landscape, but oh, if only the shot had been taken a bit earlier, before the skier had gone past that distracting run to the left…..

  3. Your image of a downhill run brought back some great sailing memories. There’s nothing better than running before the wind. It’s rarely possible in the Gulf of Mexico, but when I sailed from Hawaii to Alaska, we were under spinnaker for several days, and I expect the exhilaration we felt was akin to what your skier feels. I don’t know if skiers have a downhill run song, but sailors certainly do..

    1. I could see the similarities between a downhill run and sailing with a strong tailwind. As for songs, I have never heard a downhill run song, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t exist.

  4. I think a photo capable of making me shiver at the cold is an excellent example! I love the perspective, with the distance indicating how high the ski slope!

      1. I have never been on skis, Otto! I have enjoyed being in the snow, such as it is in California, but never been skiing. But I admire those who do!
