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.

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.

Ephesus 1983

Turkey, Selcuk/Ephesus – July 1983

The theme for this week Lens-artists challenge #157 is ‘getting away’.

Near Selçuk in the west of Turkey, one can find the excavation of Ephesus. This is the Marble Road, looking down to the library of Celsus at noon on a very hot day. The negative is damaged, but it was one of the first times I dared to trespass because the contradiction between past and present was that stunning. In 1983 Turkey was ruled by a regime of generals, and taking photographs of anything military was forbidden. The young soldiers passed us going down the hill, and I could not resist to take this photos in this ancient setting. Quickly and a bit nervouws, so I did not pay too much attention to properly measure the light. But I have the photo and I got away with it :-).

Lhasa Tibet

Tibet, Lhasa – March 2004

The 139th Weekly Lens Artists Challenge is ‘special moments’. Pilgrims at the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa.

In March 2004 I visited Tibet. It would be an understatement if I said it was just overwhelming. The backdrop of the Himalayas. The fact that we were ‘high’: most of the time 3500 meters over sea level, my normal level of living.
The people and their close contact with religion, Buddhism. All parts of a puzzle that hopefully will bring me back there one day.
