Unfortunately, this was the week of my mother-in-law’s funeral. Our family and my sister-in-law’s family rented a house out in Greenport, New York. Greenport is a cute touristy sea-side village on the North Fork of Long Island, filled with shops, restaurants, and the like. Our rental was an old sea captain’s house, with multiple staircases and rooms to spare (two kitchens, two living rooms, and I think 5 bedrooms). I spent some time before the wake exploring the house and taking pictures. Overhead I found a strange old lamp. It was a perfect addition for my ceiling lamps project, and it became my favorite image of the week

Ceiling Lamp, Captain’s House

Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 18-55 f/2.8-4 R LM OIS at 39mm, f/4.5 at 1/30, ISO 1600.

Digital Darkroom. I started with the obvious square crop. After that, I increased exposure by almost a full stop and touched on contrast. I darkened the blacks for additional contrast, and finished by adding boosts to texture (+20), clarity (+18) and dehaze (+16)

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
