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.

La Défense (Blocs)

France, Paris – January 1989

The theme for this week Lens-artists challenge #157 is ‘getting away’.

La Défense is a big, modern office area in Paris. I remember my teacher for French saying she did not like it at all, too modern, on the old axe of the Champs Elysées and Louvre. Years later I was curious about the area and went there on a long weekend trip, hoping for some nice images. Feeling small between the buildings of big companies, rising high up over the skyline of Paris. An alienating place, where human size did not seem to matter.

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………..’
