A view from the ‘red house’ in Monschau. Yesterday I posted the colored version of this photo. Like earlier this week I like to know if you prefer the color or the mono version. Leave your comments with your choice! After all: this week it is your pick.
A view from the ‘red house’ in Monschau.
Yesterday I posted the monochrome version of this photo. They do differ, not only in color. I wonder which one you prefer.
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.

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.
Paris in December 1981. A view from the hill of Sacré Coeur into the city at the end of the Winter afternoon just before sunset. A shot on Kodak Color II brought back to monochrome. Camera unknown.
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.
I love to take photos from a car (rest assured, I am not doing the driving at those moments). And the result can be quite surprising at times. This one gives me the feeling of a small village, hidden in the landscape.
The garden is a special place during each season. It offers a cycle of life yearly; each phase with its own beauty and uniqueness.
