Going in circles

Belgium, Ardennes – April 1977

The theme of Lens-Artists #124 is ‘Now and then’.

A long time ago, somewhere in the Ardennes on a cold April day. Going round in circles. Learning how to use black and white and shoot a decent photo.

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 scanned from negative and tweaked using Snapseed and Marksta. Click the picture for a larger version.

Walk A Line! Focus!

Belgium, Gistel-Zevekote – August 2019

This is the first time I post an entry in a theme of Frank’s Jansen Dutch goes the photo: Focus! 
The photo is from a trip to Calais France, and shows the flat lands of Flanders on the coast of the Channel.
Each time of year these fields look different; in Summer they look bright and light, in Winter they can be grey and dark.
We make this trip a few times each year, and each time it reminds me of Jacques Brel’s chanson ‘mijn vlakke land’.
(The link to my 2014 post is not working any more, I cleaned up my blog a few months ago.
You can find the English and Dutch lyrics here.
