The Lens Artists Photo Challenge#142 for this week is ‘you pick it’. It is Spring and birds are building nests. This magpie hits our hanging baskets for building material.
In times of covid things change, some in small ways, some in quite ‘big’ ways. The world is not getting smaller but seems smaller. Going away for a long weekend is more like a logistical planned event than a spontaneous ‘let’s get away’. And even the way I take photo’s is changed. I see less that catches my eye, all is so familiar close by. So I went way back till way then, October 1990, a long weekend with old school mates. The mates are still there, on Whatsapp. But the feeling of this image is different. A swarm of birds against a sunset. Being free, to wander, to roam. Patience my dear heart.
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 theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #123 is ‘Found in the Neighborhood’.
Well, this is a photo of a neighborhood from a long time ago during a holiday in France.
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.
Framing a cloudy sunset I got a surpise of a gull flying by.
