From the archives: Chania Crete 1992

Greece, Chania Crete, August 1992

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#164) is ‘Looking Up/Looking Down’.

Again one from the archives and hence monochrome. In August 1992 I visited Crete and old town of Chania. The old lighthouse in the old harbour.

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.

From the archive: Roof Terrace 1992

Greece, Chania Crete – August 1992

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#164) is ‘Looking Up/Looking Down’.

Again one from the archives and hence monochrome. In August 1992 I visited Crete and old town of Chania. This was the view up to a very appealing roof terrace.

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.

Birds

The Netherlands, Achterhoek – October 1990

The theme of Lens-Artists #124 is ‘Now and then’.

In times of covid things change, some in small ways, some in quite ‘big’ ways. The world is not getting smaller but seems smaller. Going away for a long weekend is more like a logistical planned event than a spontaneous ‘let’s get away’. And even the way I take photo’s is changed. I see less that catches my eye, all is so familiar close by. So I went way back till way then, October 1990, a long weekend with old school mates. The mates are still there, on Whatsapp. But the feeling of this image is different. A swarm of birds against a sunset. Being free, to wander, to roam. Patience my dear heart.
