Details (Door)

The weekly theme is ‘details’.  And the brief is to show ‘intimate’ details. You do not have to zoom in to highlight a detail, or build up a photo with detailed and non detailed parts.

Time (Book Reader)

This week’s theme is ‘time’.

The brief this week is to show time. A little girl was reading in the open door of the house in Rethimnon Crete. When I greeted her she woke up out of the world of the book, a different time.

Monochrome Madness 2-8: Entrance 

Leanne Cole is an Australian photographer; each week she organizes a ‘monochrome madness’. This is week 8 of year 2. The entrance of the departments of Security and Justice and Interior Affairs in Den Haag. Breathing the thirties in metal and grandeur.

B4 Retouch: Avignon (left overs 1)

I earlier published some photos from Avignon. I found some ‘left overs’. Here is a set in and around the palace of the pope.

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.

B4 Retouch Chartes Cathedral

In 2002 I visited the cathedral notre dame de Chartres at Chartres, France. An amazing architectural, cultural and historical place. The interior is beautiful and its labyrinth is famous. The exterior is beautiful with lots of figures and impressive portals. .

Weekly Photo Challenge/B4 Retouch: Endurance (Chartres)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘endurance’.  Endurance is about ‘the long run’, objects that are still here in our times long after they have been build. This is one of the portals of the cathedral of Chartres. Not completely sharp, sorry.

Decisions, decisions ………..

A shop window in Alkmaar. The outside of the shop and the styling of the display caught my eye. However, there was so much reflection that just a photo of the display was impossible. So this became a kind of self-reflection or complex selfie. I can not decide however if I prefer the original color or the monochrome version. So I show them both. We Dutchmen have a way of easily reaching consensus by the middle. What do you think and which one do you prefer?

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.
