Plateau

Yemen, Haraz Mountains – April 1998

This week’s theme of the weekly lens artists challenge (#135) is ‘glimpse into your world’. The brief is simple: show us what makes your world spin, or what makes you delirious with joy. Let me start by showing what makes my world spin in photography. That is to visit places, travel, and monochrome photography. One of the most impressive trips was to Yemen in 1998. A beautiful country with amazing scenery and a rich culture. A mountain view near Sanaa in the Haraz mountais in Yemen.

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.

On Wings

Yemen, Ibb – March 1998

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #71 is ‘creepy’.

Birds on the wing over Ibb, a town in Yemen. I was fortunate to visit this beautiful country in 1998.
Watching and seeing the vast destruction in the ongoing war and the human suffering, is almost unbearable.

Driver

Yemen – March 1998

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #71 is ‘creepy’.

Somewhere in Yemen. I was fortunate to visit this beautiful country in 1998.
Watching and seeing the vast destruction in the ongoing war and the human suffering, is almost unbearable.
This left over of this car was on the side of the road, used as a shelter. It is creepy to think the driver is gonna take you somewhere.
