From the archive: Izmir 1986

Turkey, Izmir – October 1986

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

Again one from the archives. This is an original color film, turned into monochrome. I can not remember what camera I used for it, it must have been a simple point and shooter. The bland color photo turned into a lively pattern of monochrome tints. This is a part of Izmir, near the old Kadifekale, a hillcastle on Mount Pagos.

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.

Originally shot with a point and shooter on Fuji 200, scanned from negative and tweaked using Snapseed and Marksta. Click the picture for a larger version.

From the archives: Chania Crete 1992

Greece, Chania Crete, August 1992

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

Again one from the archives and hence monochrome. In August 1992 I visited Crete and old town of Chania. The old lighthouse in the old harbour.

From the archive: Roof Terrace 1992

Greece, Chania Crete – August 1992

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

Again one from the archives and hence monochrome. In August 1992 I visited Crete and old town of Chania. This was the view up to a very appealing roof terrace.

Shoes

The Netherlands, Naarden – June 2007

This week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge (#161) is ‘feet and shoes’. Trying to find something that fits into this theme was difficult. I am not really into shoes or feet, let alone photos of them! However, I found one. I think. During a visit to the bi-annual photo exhibition at Naarden (FFN) in 2007 I shot these photographers clicking away on a just married couple.

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.

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.
