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.

Faerie Tale Land (spot the differences)

Germany, Heimbach – November 2016

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

Yesterday I posted the monochrome version of this photo. They do differ, not only in color. I wonder which one you prefer.

Pool Talk (Kreislauf des Geldes)

Germany, Aachen – November 2017

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

Where fiction, art and reality meet. I googled for some more information about this fountain and found it on the site of the Aachen tourist service. It is called ‘Kreislauf des Geldes’ aka Money Cycle.

In this cycle money goes from hand to hand. The fountain was created in 1976 by Karl-Henning Seemann. The people shown symbolise avarice, greed, patronage and begging. Just like money, the water in the fountain flows all year round, since it is fed by the thermal springs. In the summer in particular, the fountain is a popular meeting point for Aacheners and visitors to the city, and for young and old looking to cool down in the flowing water.

Berlin November 1989

Germany, Berlin – November 1989

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #110 is ‘Creativity in a time of Covid’.

Looking back to our history we have known barriers and borders, preventing us to do what we wanted, or keeping us in. The Berlin Wall in November 1989, just before it ‘fell’.

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.
