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.

Delft over Bridges

The Netherlands, Delft – June 2021

The theme for this week Lens-artists challenge #153 is ‘Wonderful World’.

Delft, like other cities in the West of The Netherlands, has an extended canal system, that was used in the past for transport. Lots of little bridges connect the city streets.
