From the archive: Tree Oegstgeest 1978

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – November 1978

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#164) is ‘Looking Up/Looking Down’.

An old photo of an old tree, still standing.

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.

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – August 2021

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#162) is ‘all about the light’. This Summer is what it is, not the best one we had. Grey, cloudy, rain, and from time to time some sun in between.

Sky Blue

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – August 2021

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#162) is ‘all about the light’. Maybe not a photo you would expcect when it is about ‘light’. But it is. I always love reading quotes from people on blogs, but I am too lazy to look up this one. Someone said: photography is painting with light. Which is true basically, glass, metal or later film was made to be sensitive to light to store images. Sensors do the same, but we are not aware of that process. Just the result.
Last weeks I was looking at the sky more and more because a friend (I call him a friend even though I have not yet him personally for our first beer) Andy Townend ‘shoots a sky a day’ on his Facebook and IG account. A sky with clouds is a painting in light. I long to see blue skies, it is too wet and grey this Summer.

Don Quichot the French

France, Domfront – July 2013

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #159 is ‘Postcards’.

In Domfront in Normandy they show old knights and medeaval games to tourists in Summer, in a superb backdrop of the old town. That delivers contrasting images.
