Musée Carré d’Art 1997

France, Nimes – August 1997

This week lens artists photo challenge is ‘that special place’. In this photo it refers to the moment of the photo. I was lying on the floor figuring out if the reflections of the Musée Carré d’Art could build up to some composition. Then, a young girls came into the frame, and I just snapped.

Saint Antonin-Noble-Val 2003

France, Saint Antonin-Noble-Val – August 2003

This weeks challenge #186 is ‘Low Light’. A little alley in a medieval village. The dark parts are as interesting as the light contrasts. St. Antonin-Noble-Val is a small village in France, with a scenic old town center.

Kathmandu 2004

Nepal, Katmandu – April 2004

This weeks challenge #186 is ‘Low Light’. In black and white light is key for tones in the picture. It needs body (black) but soft greys give it atmosphere. Here I used the darker tones for the main objects of the photo, the couple playing cards, while having a drink and a bite. But all these signs in the background about what to do in Kathmandu add to the atmosphere of the photo.

Bridge

High Altitude Family Portrait Tibet 2004

Tibet, Karo La – April 2004

Travel has taught me to be bold and kind to try and make contact and produce the photos you really want. But sometimes you have to pay money as well. A family portrait on high altitude (5000 meters) in the Himalay on Karo La. Part of a family that lived on the pass, with a yak, a goat and dogs. This week’s theme for the Lens Artists Photo Challenge #184 is ‘Travel has taught me’.
