What's (in) the Picture?

My Hometown 4

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – April 1979

The theme for the lens-artists#131 is ‘emotions’.

An old tradition is ‘ringsteken’. Literally stitching a ring from a wood block, hanging from a rope over the road, sitting in a carriage, pulled by one or more horses.

The B4 retouch series
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. All of them are not completely retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

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

      It is old, hence the clothing and etiquette. This was on Queen’s Day in April 1979. It is mostly part of a celebration (of King or Queen’s birthday) but there are still yearly championships as well.
