I have not participated in a while, but seeing Leanne’s wonderful photos of her trip to the USA, I realized that it was a good moment to start participating again. This week theme is ‘country’. At a glance you add ‘western’ but I am not into photos of line dancing! So I browsed my collection of photos that are my stock for my blog and found photos of a trip to Yemen in 1998. At the moment the situation in Yemen is far from peaceful or safe. In 1998 it was quite a safe place to go to and a wonderful experience to be in this beautiful country.
Leanne Cole is an Australian photographer; each week she organizes a ‘monochrome madness’. Every four weeks there is a theme, and the other weeks are open for any monochrome photo.
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.
