Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: On Top (of a canon)

This week photo challenge is ‘on top’.

A little girl on top of an old medieval canon.

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 / B4 Retouch: Monument (Theme park)

This week photo challenge is ‘monument’.

This ‘Langnek’ (in English Longneck) can be found in the Efteling,
a theme park in the south of the Netherlands.

The statue is part of the Fairy Tale forest.
Langnek tells a fairy tale of the Grimm brothers.
In it he is a character that can stretch his neck to look over mountains.
And as he tells the story his neck rises over the trees.
For kids this park with all its stories is a monument.

Weekly Photo Challenge / B4 Retouch: Selfie (I got a Name)

This week photo challenge is ‘selfie’.

After some snow I was looking to put together a creative Season’s greetings card.
This is my first name in snow from that session.
I got a name. So this is a kind of selfie 😉

Weekly Travel Theme: Up!

This is the closest I ever got to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
I still hope to get on it one day, it is on my list of sights to see in Paris.
Being lazy I did not try to find a place where I could frame the whole tower in one shot.
So I shot four separate ones and stitched them together.
The blog ‘Where is my backpack’ organizes a weekly travel theme.
This week it is ‘up‘. I still have to get up there 😉
