Tarn Point Sublime Right

France, St. Rome de Dolan – Point Sublime – August 1992

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #158 is ‘Along back country roads’.

The gorge of the river Tarn in France, looking right from the Point Sublime (if you turn this around you have the English translation). This view point shows the Tarn in a splendid panoramic view. This is the right side, yesterday I published the left. This area of France is the lowest populated part of France. Small roads, beautiful nature, nature.

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.

Ephesus 1983

Turkey, Selcuk/Ephesus – July 1983

The theme for this week Lens-artists challenge #157 is ‘getting away’.

Near Selçuk in the west of Turkey, one can find the excavation of Ephesus. This is the Marble Road, looking down to the library of Celsus at noon on a very hot day. The negative is damaged, but it was one of the first times I dared to trespass because the contradiction between past and present was that stunning. In 1983 Turkey was ruled by a regime of generals, and taking photographs of anything military was forbidden. The young soldiers passed us going down the hill, and I could not resist to take this photos in this ancient setting. Quickly and a bit nervouws, so I did not pay too much attention to properly measure the light. But I have the photo and I got away with it :-).
