The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #145 is ‘getting to know you’. Nice to see more sunsets now the days are longer.
The theme for his week Lens-artists challenge #145 is ‘getting to know you’. In Spring work on the garden starts, to prepare for Summer and warmer weather, outside dining and cooking, relaxing in the sun, reading a book. When the sun is low, the light is sometimes fantastic and reflects on the dry grass shoots of last year.
The 139th Weekly Lens Artists Challenge is ‘special moments’. Pilgrims at the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa.
In March 2004 I visited Tibet. It would be an understatement if I said it was just overwhelming. The backdrop of the Himalayas. The fact that we were ‘high’: most of the time 3500 meters over sea level, my normal level of living.
The people and their close contact with religion, Buddhism. All parts of a puzzle that hopefully will bring me back there one day.
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.
A very old sunset from long ago showing the sky over Oegstgeest and the tower of the Roman Catholic Church.
The B4 retouch series
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish. All of them are not completely retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.
The sun is always there, even when you do not see it. On this day it was out sparkling over the canal, high lighting a beautiful sky.
Another one for Hammad’s freshly start up Weekly Sky Challenge #1.
Into the sunset, a reminder of a wonderful Summer we had, albeit in strange times.
