Oud Poelgeest

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – February 2021

Two weeks ago I published a color version of this view. This is a silver monochrome, with a different feel towards it. It suggests a different age and time. Mono, with a hint of sepia, brings this image back years to the previous century. Or am I old and going soft in melancholy? The 137th Weekly Lens Artists Challenge is about ‘soft’.

Plateau

Yemen, Haraz Mountains – April 1998

This week’s theme of the weekly lens artists challenge (#135) is ‘glimpse into your world’. The brief is simple: show us what makes your world spin, or what makes you delirious with joy. Let me start by showing what makes my world spin in photography. That is to visit places, travel, and monochrome photography. One of the most impressive trips was to Yemen in 1998. A beautiful country with amazing scenery and a rich culture. A mountain view near Sanaa in the Haraz mountais in Yemen.

Qat
