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 deploy tactical cruise missiles in The Netherlands met a lot of opposition. One of the events was No 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 into 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!
