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 reflection of the sky’s colors caught my eye first, but then I started looking more closely, and thought, “Where are the sailboats?” Now, I think I know where they are; their masts seem to be reflected at the upper edge of the image — unless those are lamp posts. My hunch is that the water depth nearer the shore doesn’t allow for boats that draw more than a few feet: hence, power boats instead of sailboats.

    1. I actually had to look up another photo capturing the same scene with a wider angle. In fact those masts are lamp posts – on a bridge. I am quite amazed by your observation skills. 🙂

      1. I was thinking about this today, and decided that, for me, learning to ‘see’ began with sailing. Learning to read wind on the water, standing night watches offshore, navigating through shoal water — they all teach a heightened attention to details. My first sailing instructor used to say, “Assume nothing; pay attention to everything.” That’s good advice for a photographer, too!

  2. Looks so lovely and peaceful, but set against what is happening at the moment in the Gulf of Mexico, I can’t help but feel a sense of doom as well…like this is the lull before the storm….

  3. Otto, when I first looked at this photo it immediately reminded me of musical notes on a score. It is funny how our brain plays tricks on us. Brilliant photo 👏🏼

  4. My first glance via small image, I thought this was an image of a piece of electronics, like the inside of a computer, reflected in the outdoor.. .ha – was I ever wrong, so it gave me a big smile when I saw it on the laptop screen! One can get lost in that reflected sky – such peace!
