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…..

LONELYNESS

It’s lonely at sea. Despite the light, the stillness overwhelms you. You can hear your heart beating in the wind. There is nothing around you. Silence and wind are the only companions. The occasional gull. Certainly lost.

ENJOY!!

LIGHT

I like old buildings. They have a certain appearance. It seems lived through. The bricks are dated and are no longer supplied in today’s modern homes. Moreover, everything is made of concrete. The woodwork also looks weathered. The inside seems interesting to view. But that is not allowed because of the danger of collapse. All in all, Bruges is a historic city and lives up to its name.

ENJOY!

DIFFERENCES

“Spot the differences” once has been a comic in the newspaper.

You had to look for the differences in two almost identical drawings.

Bread and stones, that’s what this photo was all about.

There are similarities, but there are many differences too.

Especially when you bite into it.

ENJOY!

FOGGY MORNING

I like the foggy morning. Then it is as if everything is still asleep. Some colors wake up early. You can see it immediately. At others it takes a little longer. For example, brown tends to take a long time to wake up. Although the sun helps enormously.

ENJOY!

REFLECTIONS

I like the colors of Scandinavia.

Especially from the reflections in the water.

The air is always cooler than in the south.

A matter of taste, may be.

ENJOY!

LEVELS

Everything has its own level.

Also the sea water.

Sometimes you look into the depth.

Straight through the water always results a distorted picture.

I like the colors.

ENJOY!

BREATHING

Breathing is the first thing that comes to mind when I see this picture. The fresh air of the sea that comes in from afar. A rocky coast on the Ålands Islands. A quiet place. A place to get lost, to immerse yourself in. Just look into the distance and occasionally see that tree that has been there for years. On the rocks!

ENJOY!

DESIGN

Scandinavians are real designers in my opinion. They keep coming up with new ideas. In one way or another you come across them more often than the Italians, who also have great ideas. In any case, the northern idea appeals to me more. A certain kind of beauty. You cannot pass by somewhere or you will come across it in some way.

ENJOY!
