Magpie

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – April 2021

The Lens Artists Photo Challenge#142 for this week is ‘you pick it’. It is Spring and birds are building nests. This magpie hits our hanging baskets for building material.

Geometry

England, Chester – July 2010

The 141th Weekly Lens Artists Challenge is ‘geometry ’.

The altar and backdrop of the Chester cathedral in England.

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.

Spring Daffodil


The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – March 2021

The 140th Weekly Lens Artists Challenge is ‘change of scenery’. During the pandemic my window to the world shrunk. But this year I do what I always do in Spring: shooting the flowers growing right outside the kitchen window. The good old Nikon D500 with long lens being in use again, waiting on the kitchen table each morning when I open the shutters. A micro or macro change of scenery, but nature nurtures not only its plants. Indeed you do not have to go far for a change of scenery.

Lhasa Tibet

Tibet, Lhasa – March 2004

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.
