Danger: No Nukes 1982

The weekly theme is ‘danger’. 

In the 1980’s at the end of the Cold War there was a strong anti nuclear platform in The Netherlands: the intention to install tactical cruise missiles in The Netherlands met a lot of opposition. One of the events was Nu Nukes, a concert with bands in Utrecht. This is one of the photos from the archive of that event. It was a grim period, where the mutual threat of nuclear annihilation of the Eastern and Western block was thought to save us all just from that. It seems we are heading in to a new nuclear race again. Not a thrill, just danger.

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.

The Road Taken: Looking (from the) Back

This week’s theme is ‘the road taken’.

Looking from the back of the train on the tracks.

About 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: Converge (Council Office Utrecht)

This weekly them is about ‘converge’. Lines and shapes are important building tools in a photo. If used well they guide the attention of the observer through the picture towards something that needs attention according to the photographer. Theoretically. In practice it is fun to play with lines and shapes and use them to build the contents of a framework.  And if you use light and dark as well, and people, then it gets really exciting. To me that is. Here the new Council Office of Utrecht.
