My Hometown

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – January 1979

Winter 1979, an old former farmhouse ‘Ora et Labora’.

The B4 retouch series
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. All of them are not completely retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

The  picture was originally shot with Pentax K1000 on Kodak TriX, scanned from negative and tweaked using Snapseed and Marksta. Click the picture for a larger version.

Repost: The Full Moon Inn

This year’s last Lens-Artists Challenge (#128) is ‘And here comes the holiday season………..’

The Full Moon Inn in Morton near Southwell. In normal times the pub to celebrate Christmas with friends. See you next year.

Window 2

Germany, Monschau – November 2016

The theme for Weekly Lens Artists 125 is ‘you can pick it’.

A view from the ‘red house’ in Monschau. Yesterday I posted the colored version of this photo. Like earlier this week I like to know if you prefer the color or the mono version. Leave your comments with your choice! After all: this week it is your pick.

Paris in December 1981. A view from the hill of Sacré Coeur into the city at the end of the Winter afternoon just before sunset. A shot on Kodak Color II brought back to monochrome. Camera unknown.

About the B4 retouch series:

Power

The Netherlands, Rotterdam – October 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #118 is ‘Communication’.

Architecture can be used to communicate wealth or power. An example in the history of The Netherlands are the canal houses in Amsterdam. A more modern ‘show off’ of wealth is the ING House on the A10 in Amsterdam. A rather small Head Office on a very expensive piece of land. And building high risings is another example where (not only) Dutch cities build literally their image and show off economic power. This is Delftse Poort, til 2009 the highest building in The Netherlands. The five highest buildings in The Netherlands are all in Rotterdam (this is the ranking).

About Rooftops

Last week I had to kill some time in Rotterdam near the Central Station.
Just behind the roof of Central Station is Delftse Poort. Until 2009 the highest building in The Netherlands. The five highest buildings in The Netherlands are all in Rotterdam.
