Lost in translation

Greece, Naxos – July 1983

Reading about the theme this week, I instantly had to think of this sign on a beach in Naxos Greece in July 1983. Sometimes things go wrong in a funny way, trying to communicate from a native language to English. This week’s theme for the Lens Artists Photo Challenge #184 is ‘Travel has taught me’.

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.

Mont Saint Michel

France, Mont-Saint-Michel – July 2011

Le Mont Saint Michel is an old village on a rock in a bay on the west of France in Brittany. It is positioned in between Normandy and Brittany, and is famous for its abbey.

From the archive: Chapel Naxos 1983

Greece, Naxos – July1983

A little chapel in Naxos that could do with some tender loving care to this week’s lens artistists challenge #168: seen better days.

Church and Cows

The Netherlands, Rijnsaterwoude – September 2020

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

The Dutch landscape is a continuous source of inspiration. Sometimes in a wide view, sometimes in a close up to pick up some details. A church on a dyke, cows in the polder.

Tower

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #114 is ‘Negative Space’.

The term ‘negative space’ to me is confusion: technically it is the space around the main subject of a photo. It means ‘negative’ as opposed to ‘positive’ attention for the main subject. The word ‘negative’ as a noun brings back good old memories. Being older I actually worked and work with negatives (for the millennials: it has to do with film, the light sensitive stuff we used to put in a camera to get a photo on (in negative) that later could be printed (in positive).

So ‘negative space’ is about the focus a viewer of a photo is offered in a photo. If there is a lot to see around the subject, than that distracts from that subject. In other words: it is a creative tool a photographer can use.
