The Two of Us

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

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

A walk over a field of heather in the Zandenbos near Nunspeet.

E-bicycle

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #116 is ‘symmetry’.

The Pas Opweg leading to the Hidden Village in the forest near Nunspeet. In 1943 – 1944 the Dutch resistance build a village where people, wanted by the Germans, could hide.
We are lucky to have thousands of kilometers of free bicycle lanes in The Netherlands. And riding an e-bike for the first time in my life in this forest was a wonderful experience.

Cantal France 1993

France, Cantal – August 1993

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #115 is ‘Inspiration’.

An old travel photo from 1993 in France. The Cantal is a beautiful area with no longer active volcanoes. Landscapes inspire me. This one was amazing.

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.

Manakah 1998

Yemen, Manakah – March 1998

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #112 is ‘Pick a Word… ’.

A country tangled in a dreadful civil war, unfortunately.

Paris 1989

France, Paris – February 1989

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #112 is ‘Pick a Word… ’.

In 1989 the Notre Dame de Paris was dominating the view of the Isle de France. Let us hope that after the fire she will come back untangled in its old splendor, resting comfortable between the two arms of the Seine.

Berlin November 1989

Germany, Berlin – November 1989

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #110 is ‘Creativity in a time of Covid’.

Looking back to our history we have known barriers and borders, preventing us to do what we wanted, or keeping us in. The Berlin Wall in November 1989, just before it ‘fell’.

Göreme Valley 1987

Turkey, Göreme Valley, September 1987

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #110 is ‘Creativity in a time of Covid’.

Looking back in the archive for another challenge, I dug up some old images. This is Turkey, 1987. It must be Fuji film, and probably Nikon F301 with a long lens, but I am not sure.

About the B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series. That series caught on a bit more than I thought. All of them are not retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.
