Cable cars 1 – SF 2013

Karin Ott

Lets start out with a traditional subject – the cable cars of San Francisco. Endlessly fascinating and you’ll have plenty of time to study them as you wait in line 🙂 An advantage of being jet lagged is that we had time to ride to Fisherman’s Wharf and back long before anyone else were finished with their hotel buffet breakfasts.

“Invisible” – new work up on my portfolio

“Avatar”

A new body of work is up on my portfolio website. It is also the first series that make it to the website in it’s finished, Lightroom edited form. There’s a lot of work to be done with re-editing but I love the results. Even if the difference can appear to be minor I feel they are significant.

Canvas work

“Time heals all wounds”

I spent all day yesterday on a project that has waited a long time – editing all the photos of my canvas work. I needed Lightroom to do that as all the shots needed straightening. The mounted photo canvases are all 60*60 cm with the photos sewn onto the canvas with cross stiches at each corner. There’s no photoshop involved. All elements are cut and glued and all photos are as shot.

Below are the rest of the canvases I just posted on my portfolio, now in a quality I dare put my name to. These plus many more are exhibited at Ishøj Kultur Café, Denmark, until Tuesday.

Kastrup 4, 2013

I was fortunate to be given a tour of the part of the Kastrup Værk, Bryggergården, they were attempting to rent out. The craftmanship of what was not covered was amazing. The thickness of the lumber, the structure of the stone walls with the windows imbedded a foot deep… Unfortunately all I had a chance to photograph were two fast shots in an elevator so old you opened the door by pulling a rope.

This is the first of them.
