Rome 1998

Italy, Rome – September 1998

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

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.

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’.

Going Back – The Second Time Around (Tibet)

Tibet, near Shigatse – March 2004

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #92 is ‘Going Back – The second time around’.

In March 2004 I visited Tibet. It would be an understatement if I said it was overwhelming.
The backdrop of the Himalaya, the fact that most of the time we were 3500 meters or higher above my normal (sea) level.
The people and close contact with Buddhism. All parts of a puzzle that hopefully will bring me back once more.

Against the Odds: Phil Collins 1981

This weekly theme is ‘Against the Odds’.

Michelle promised bonus points for a photo of Phil Collins, well here it is.

October 3th 1981, Groenoordhal Leiden. Genesis is on tour promoting their Abacab album.  Genesis’ frontman Phil Collins remembers that night as he got angry when  the Dutch audience booed the new songs: “Just to make it worthwhile for people who like the old shit….”. (the quote starts at 54:15).

In August 2008 he came back to Leiden when his daughter Joeley married. In an interview he said that Genesis was first booed in 1981 in Leiden, so he returned with mixed emotions. But he was joking ‘I hope the father and mother of my son in law did not attend the gig’.

Against all odds’ was already written by Phil Collins on the 3th of October 1981, but still on the shelf. The Groenoordhal no longer exists.  And Phil Collins? He is luckily not dead yet and just published his autobiography by that title. A remarkable career in music. And a brilliant drummer and musician.
