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 found this shot to have a rather unsettling vibe, I think in part, because the woman might be in distress, or simply poor health. And because the pattern on her shirt, at least in B&W, resembles a reptile skin .

  2. I am not sure how you capture her emotion. It seems you must be so close to her and was able to shoot this close, if my guess is right. I hope she was alright.

  3. the presence of the busy young man with his smartphone adds even more to the tragic feeling expressed by this woman in the foreground. a street picture as everyone would like to shoot. congratulations.

  4. This is a strong image Otto! It seems something dramatic is happening in front of the woman and the boy not far behind her doesn’t notice it! A possible front page for a book…the B&W and the “dark” treatment enhace thie disturbing feeling…well done Otto!

  5. An intense expression, Otto. It makes me wonder what’s going on inside her. And I love the contrast with the tattooed fellow with the sleeveless tee and backward cap. I sense that he’s looking over his sunglasses at you, but he if he hadn’t seen you, would he have been calmly looking at his phone? Fascinating.
