Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh (Swans)

The weekly challenge is about ‘fresh’. Spring is not started yet and young swans can not be seen, but in June they will be there again.

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – June 2014

 

Bye Bye Winter

Spring is coming near so it is time to say farewell to the Winter here. It was not a tough one and we did have some snow. That says it all. Unfortunately no ice skating.

Boats

The bay of Portsall in the West of France in Brittany.

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.

Presqu’île

A presqu’île in French means something like ‘nearly an island’ or ‘almost an island’. A ladder of Jacob on the water in the West of France near Porspoder in Brittany.

The weekly challenge is about ‘walls’. Walls erected, seen or unseen, walls built by ourselves or others, signs on walls.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall (Tower of Power)

The weekly challenge is about ‘walls’. Walls erected, seen or unseen, walls built by ourselves or others, signs on walls.

Building higher than others is apparently a symbol of power. Showing off how rich or how smart you are. Telling the rest you are better and more powerful. In this picture the Father of the Fatherland (William of Orange) is looking at the high risings in front of him. Priceless to know what is on his mind while watching.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall (Looking over the Wall)

The weekly challenge is about ‘walls’. Walls erected, seen or unseen, walls built by ourselves or others, signs on walls.

Sometimes there is a wall, but you can see clearly beyond the wall. You may even notice what is going on at the other side. Just like building houses or shops, people are building works in progress. It is amazing when you can look over your inner walls to see where you really want to go.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall (No Wall)

The weekly challenge is about ‘walls’. Walls erected, seen or unseen, walls built by ourselves or others, signs on walls. 

Here in this situation, there is no wall unless you do not open yourself to receive their music.
