Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Threshold (Oracle)

This week photo challenge is about ‘threshold’.
Starting something new, stepping over the threshold, doing what needs to be done.
That is not always doing the ‘right’ thing.

The remains of the Apollo temple in Delphi, Greece.
This temple was the home of the Pythia, the oracle where ancient Greeks went for advice.
Not everybody could go there, and you had to pay the gods with offerings.
People needed guidance from them  what to do in their life, but no one could escape his fate.
It was not always clear what exactly was meant in the advice.
Oedipus went there, heard that he would kill has father and marry his mother.
So he decided not to go back to what he thought was his home; he did do what he thought was best.
But the rest is mythical history.

The B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series.
That series caught on a bit more than I thought.
All of them are not retouched yet.
Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

The  picture was originally shot with Pentax K1000 on Kodak Plusx, scanned from negative
and tweaked using Snapseed and Marksta.
