About hansvandam

Er is veel veranderd sinds ik op mijn 9e jaar mijn eerste camera kreeg. Een "clackje" met een heuse geelfilter erin gebouwd. Uitermate modern voor die tijd, zeker wanneer je bedenkt dat het toestel ook nog de keuze bood tussen een opnametijd van 1/25sec en 1/50sec. Je kon er werkelijk alle kanten mee op. De filminleg - een rolletje van 12 stuks 6x6 opnamen, waarbij achterop de camera in een rood venstertje de nummers verschenen - was nog het meest moeilijke. Wat was ik trots op mijn eerste foto die ik na een week kon ophalen bij de plaatselijke fotograaf waar de camera ook gekocht was… THE MAGIC WORLD !!!!! In de nieuwe digitale wereld lijkt alles maakbaar. De essentie blijven zoeken in een beeld en deze op een unieke wijze weergeven met de technische mogelijkheden van vandaag, vraagt een continue blijven volgen van ontwikkelingen. Er gaat echter niets boven ons magistrale oog dat zoveel meer kan zien dan een camera. I love it…. Een dag zonder fotografie is een dag niet beleefd…..

DAY 029 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – FLYING

It takes a couple of weeks before they fly away. The seeds of the tree in my garden. Did you know I can fly too? I am not only a photographer but I am a flyer too. I fly in my dreams. I fly low over fields and people are looking at me. They wave and ask ‘how do you do that?’. I never give any answer. According to my daughter this happens early in the morning. I do not harm anybody. So I like to go on with it like my tree does within some weeks.

ENJOY !

 

DAY 028 – 100 DAY JOURNAL(2) – FANTASY

I just remembered my daily journal. I almost forgot it for today. So I have to use my fantasy. I just red something about “playing all day”. Nice is it, don’t you think? Playing  is using your fantasy. Like I do right now. I found a toy car in the window of my bedroom and I made a picture of it. Doing nothing else but playing. So

ENJOY !

DAY 027 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – HARVEST

The first harvest of my back- garden! I love it! ‘It’s a beautiful day’ sung good old Freddy Mercury. Meaning something different I think. But I’am sure he could have meant it. Anyway I do! So

ENJOY !

 

 

DAY 026 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – RECOGNISE

I think you recognise the flower I photographed this evening. She is well known by herself especially in France. I remember some holidays I met her before. Anyway the evening sun gives a special feeling yo every image.  I like the diagonal in the square format. So for tonight:

ENJOY !

DAY 025 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – PROBLEMS

This shot I made with my Fiji X Pro2. A mirrorless camera. I first saw the Jasmin in France during a holliday over there. It was 2008 July.


I made it with my Canon 5D at that time.

Nowadays I mostly shoot my 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) with my iPhone, because it’s easy shooting. The filters I use are from Snapseed most of the time.

However I mostly like the shots made by my Xpro2. Maybe you guess why.

I think I have a problem. Which one to choose. I think I follow my heart.

ENJOY!

DAY 024 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – AIRCO

According to the wheater forecast the temperature rises up to 30-31 degrees Celsius. This means full use of airco systems, where ever they may be. As I am not the owner of a beast like that I am going to swim. I think this evening to be a perfect moment. So think about that noisy thing and meanwhile:

ENJOY!

 

DAY 023 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – WOODY

Some years ago I’ve got Woody Woodpecker during my birthday. I built it on a tree in front of my house. As I planned to move I tried to take Woody with me. Impossible. Woody seems to love his tree as he does not move for one millimeter. To the new owners of my house I advise:

ENJOY

DAY 022 – 100 DAY JOURNAL(2) – SUMMER !!!!

It’s summer !!! The coming three months it’s summer. A wonderful time of the year. A period of wine, lavendel, butterflies, flowers, some foliage, olive trees, caravanning, camping, travel, campfire and much more.

Maybe your going to the beach – start early in the morning and come back late in the evening to avoid traffic jam. For today:

ENJOY !!

 

DAY 021 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – MIDSUMMER: First, First, First….

Today we celebrate MIDSUMMER !!!

The images I made today are yelling: First, First, First ….. and I cannot decide which one is the first one to show. It is a lovely day with people we love and enjoy!

DAY 020 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – TWO OF A KIND

My summer flowers! I sowed  them in some pots in the back of my garden. I’ve got an automatic watersystem which means I have to empty the water-cask by day in order to avoid overflow. I don’t believe this to be a problem for the flowers as they grow meanwhile. So

ENJOY !
