From the archive: Fira Santorini 1979

Greece, Fira Santorini – July 1979

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#164) is ‘Looking Up/Looking Down’.

Again one from the archives. The then small town of Fira, on the island Thira aka Santorini, built on the edge of a former caldera. Since 1979 tourism boomed extremely on this beautiful island. I feel fortunate to have visited it before that tourist flood. But each time I see photos of this place I long to go back. The beaches are perfect: volcanic ashes that does not stick like sand.

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.

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

Samos 1983

Greece, Samos – July 1983

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

The airport of Samos is just near a beach. Luckily there were about two flights a day. The backroads of the Greek islands are the ferry services between them.

Delft

The Netherlands, Delft – June 2021

The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #152 is ‘Shadows and Shades’. Delft was the first city I visited since we went into the pandemic. It is a beautiful old town, famous for pottery (Delft’s Blauw/Delft Blue), the painter Johannes Vermeer and the fact that here William of Orange was murdered. The light was stunning on this warm and sunny day, it reminded me of the South of France.
