Monochrome Madness Theme Country (Yemen)

I have not participated in a while, but seeing Leanne’s wonderful photos of her trip to the USA,  I realized that it was a good moment to start participating again. This week theme is ‘country’. At a glance you add ‘western’ but I am not into photos of line dancing! So I browsed my collection of photos that are my stock for my blog and found photos of a trip to Yemen in 1998. At the moment the situation in Yemen is far from peaceful or safe. In 1998 it was quite a safe place to go to and a wonderful experience to be in this beautiful country.

Monochrome Madness:
Leanne Cole is an Australian photographer; each week she organizes a ‘monochrome madness’. Every four weeks there is a theme, and the other weeks are open for any monochrome photo. 

About 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.

  1. That’s an enigmatic shot, it looks otherworldly partly because the landscape feels medieval and the image is so many subtle shades of grey. Great shot. I wish I could visit Yemen but it doesn’t feel like a wise choice these days.

    1. Thank you Shellie! Yemen is not a place to visit right now. The photo is indeed medieval and out of time. Quite alienating. The lines are magnificent indeed. Thank you for your kind words!
