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.

Birds

The Netherlands, Achterhoek – October 1990

The theme of Lens-Artists #124 is ‘Now and then’.

In times of covid things change, some in small ways, some in quite ‘big’ ways. The world is not getting smaller but seems smaller. Going away for a long weekend is more like a logistical planned event than a spontaneous ‘let’s get away’. And even the way I take photo’s is changed. I see less that catches my eye, all is so familiar close by. So I went way back till way then, October 1990, a long weekend with old school mates. The mates are still there, on Whatsapp. But the feeling of this image is different. A swarm of birds against a sunset. Being free, to wander, to roam. Patience my dear heart.

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.

E-bicycle

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #116 is ‘symmetry’.

The Pas Opweg leading to the Hidden Village in the forest near Nunspeet. In 1943 – 1944 the Dutch resistance build a village where people, wanted by the Germans, could hide.
We are lucky to have thousands of kilometers of free bicycle lanes in The Netherlands. And riding an e-bike for the first time in my life in this forest was a wonderful experience.

Cantal France 1993

France, Cantal – August 1993

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

An old travel photo from 1993 in France. The Cantal is a beautiful area with no longer active volcanoes. Landscapes inspire me. This one was amazing.
