Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Dialogue (Looking out, looking in)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘dialogue’. Put two photos next to another in such a way that an exchange between the pictures creates more meaning then an individual presentation. Well, here the fun starts. Communication between photos,  just as the real world, is subjective. So I  welcome you all to discover what the talk might be about between these two pictures! The first is from Manchester, a man looking into the courthouse. The second is from Den Haag showing mannequins at Marks and Spencer’s. Obviously it is about looking in and out, but maybe also about controversy (a trial and the competitor De Bijenkorf across the street)?

The B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series. That series caught on a bit more than I thought.
All of them are not retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue (fairground vs chandelier)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘dialogue’. Put two photos next to another in such a way that an exchange between the pictures creates more meaning then an individual presentation. Well, here the fun starts. Communication between photos,  just as the real world, is subjective. So I  welcome you all to discover what the talk might be about between these two pictures! Both are from the Grote Kerk in Alkmaar. Outside was a fairground, inside no one was (yet?) swaying in the chandeliers.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue (Alkmaar vs Edinburgh)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘dialogue’. Put two photos next to another in such a way that an exchange between the pictures creates more meaning then an individual presentation. Well, here the fun starts. Communication between photos,  just as the real world, is subjective. So I  welcome you all to discover what the talk might be about between these two pictures! One is taken in Edinburgh, the other in Alkmaar. The latter one is a bit tilted but that is a link between the two photos as a starter.

De Zijl (a River that used to be)

De Zijl once was a river. Because of water management the old rivers of The Netherlands/Holland mostly do not flow anymore, except the big rivers Meuse (Maas) and Rhine (Rijn) that still transport water from Germany and Belgium to the sea. Some shots from a bench, observing the water on a sunny Summer evening.

  • Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Dialogue (Market)

Well, here the fun starts. Communication between photos,  just as the real world, is subjective. So I  welcome you all to discover what the talk might be about between these two pictures! Both taken on the Monday market at St. Hippolyte du Fort in the south of France. Lets have some dialogue between humans about photos!

    Monochrome Madness 26 Reeuwijkse Plassen

    Leanne Cole is an Australian photographer; each week she organizes a ‘monochrome madness’. The Monochrome Madness Challenge started 26 weeks ago. Its aim is to promote or get more familiar with monochrome photography. Which was of course the standard for years in photography. To celebrate the 26th week the challenge is to publish a color picture that looks like a monochrome picture. After publishing a long string of monochrome photos the last weeks on my blog, I can now publish four color photos! One of them is actually in the MM26. They all are taken at Reeuwijk, and show part of the beautiful Reeuwijkse Plassen. They were taken almost straight into the light of the rising sun, making the colors almost disappear. I tweaked them a bit here and there to get a tat bit more grey in.
