Just thanks

This weekend we have in Antwerp a big remembrance of the liberation of Antwerp, 75 years ago, during WWII. Of course had to go there to take pics, they will follow later.

Let me take the time here to thank all the British, American and Canadian soldiers who came here to fight for our freedom. I was a bit surprised to see how much the respect and the emotions still are living towards our liberators.

Let me say , THANK YOU.

I find this picture has a posterlike feel about it. Taken with the vintage Fujinon 55mm f2.2 on my Fuji. Straight B&W out of the camera, wanted to get very close to B&W film. working with vintage lenses is growing on me more and more.

I still remember Kodak Tri-X in B/W was your only choice to get 400 ASA and a shot like this. You captured the feel of those days. Very important we remember so thank you for bringing back that reality and thanking those who served.

This photo, Peter, says it all. You have not only captured the expression but the colors/tone is perfectly matched to the era. It looks like a shot from an old movie. Very, very nice. And of course you know my position on b&w, but this one is stunning! Bravo!!

That day I shot everything straight in B&W. I gonna make you a believer in B&W.

What a stunning image, Great composition and captures the mood of the moment perfectly. The monochrome only enhances the experience.
