Yemen – March 1998

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #71 is ‘creepy’.

Somewhere in Yemen. I was fortunate to visit this beautiful country in 1998.
Watching and seeing the vast destruction in the ongoing war and the human suffering, is almost unbearable.

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.Shot with Nikon F90 on Kodak TriX, scanned from film and edited using Snapseed and Marksta. Click the picture for a bigger version

      Actually then in 1998 it was safe: every tourist was guest of ultimately a tribal leader. Who was responsibke and accountable as honour for their well being. Hostages were guests, and just a pressure towards the government. That changed after the army tried to free hostages and tourists got killed.
