My Hometown

Winter 1979, an old former farmhouse ‘Ora et Labora’.

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.

Merry Christmas

England, Southwell – December 2016

Christmas is about light, shining in the dark, a promise of possibilities, of new events. Small sparks that may turn into the brightness of a beautiful sun, offering warmth, comfort, trust, security, well being and new life.
I wish you lots of light in the coming year, to see and observe the difference between the light and the darkness, to embrace and accept them both as parts of our life.

This year’s last Lens-Artists Challenge (#128) is ‘And here comes the holiday season………..’

Power

The Netherlands, Rotterdam – October 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #118 is ‘Communication’.

Architecture can be used to communicate wealth or power. An example in the history of The Netherlands are the canal houses in Amsterdam. A more modern ‘show off’ of wealth is the ING House on the A10 in Amsterdam. A rather small Head Office on a very expensive piece of land. And building high risings is another example where (not only) Dutch cities build literally their image and show off economic power. This is Delftse Poort, til 2009 the highest building in The Netherlands. The five highest buildings in The Netherlands are all in Rotterdam (this is the ranking).

About Rooftops

Last week I had to kill some time in Rotterdam near the Central Station.
Just behind the roof of Central Station is Delftse Poort. Until 2009 the highest building in The Netherlands. The five highest buildings in The Netherlands are all in Rotterdam.
