Going Back – The Second Time Around (Tibet)

Tibet, near Shigatse – March 2004

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #92 is ‘Going Back – The second time around’.

In March 2004 I visited Tibet. It would be an understatement if I said it was overwhelming.
The backdrop of the Himalaya, the fact that most of the time we were 3500 meters or higher above my normal (sea) level.
The people and close contact with Buddhism. All parts of a puzzle that hopefully will bring me back once more.

Yard

Capital Birch

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – February 1979

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #82 is ‘capital’

The noun capital can hold different meanings, and as always it is subjective what to choose to express a theme in a photo.
I like birch trees. I love the fine detailing from the stem, to branch to the twigs. From big to delicate. A birch can be intimidating, towering over me.
Looking up a birch gives me a feeling of humility. This photo is from 1979, a time when i was printing in a darkroom on paper. And loved big abstracts in monochrome.
