Cantal France 1993

France, Cantal – August 1993

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #115 is ‘Inspiration’.

An old travel photo from 1993 in France. The Cantal is a beautiful area with no longer active volcanoes. Landscapes inspire me. This one was amazing.

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.

Originally shot with Nikon F301 on Kodak TriX, scanned from negative and tweaked using Snapseed and Marksta. Click the picture for a larger version.

Ephesus 1987

Turkey, Ephesos/Selcuk – September 1987

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #113 is ‘A labor of love’.

Ephesus is a beautiful excavation near Selçuk in the west of Turkey. The library of Celsus is an amazing piece of architecture and art.

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.

Paris 1989

France, Paris – February 1989

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #112 is ‘Pick a Word… ’.

In 1989 the Notre Dame de Paris was dominating the view of the Isle de France. Let us hope that after the fire she will come back untangled in its old splendor, resting comfortable between the two arms of the Seine.

Capital Birch

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – February 1979

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #82 is ‘capital’

The noun capital can hold different meanings, and as always it is subjective what to choose to express a theme in a photo.
I like birch trees. I love the fine detailing from the stem, to branch to the twigs. From big to delicate. A birch can be intimidating, towering over me.
Looking up a birch gives me a feeling of humility. This photo is from 1979, a time when i was printing in a darkroom on paper. And loved big abstracts in monochrome.
