Danger: No Nukes 1982

The weekly theme is ‘danger’. 

In the 1980’s at the end of the Cold War there was a strong anti nuclear platform in The Netherlands: the intention to install tactical cruise missiles in The Netherlands met a lot of opposition. One of the events was Nu Nukes, a concert with bands in Utrecht. This is one of the photos from the archive of that event. It was a grim period, where the mutual threat of nuclear annihilation of the Eastern and Western block was thought to save us all just from that. It seems we are heading in to a new nuclear race again. Not a thrill, just danger.

About the B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. Some of them are partly retouched but most do have scratches, dust and stains.


The Netherlands, Utrecht – April 1982

The  picture was originally shot with Pentax K1000 on Kodak Plusx, scanned from negative
and tweaked using Snapseed and Marksta. Click the picture for a larger version.

    Thanks for the pingback, Chris. And for the large version of your Danger shot. I think all the grain and scratch adds a lot to the atmosphere of the event then…and now!
