DAY 080 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – QUIET

QUIET

As I saw the yellow water-lily some days ago, I went back today. The brandy-bottle is rising up and opens day by day. Today the miller was present and the water-mill worked. With the blue sky above me and lying on my stomach I felt like the first days of spring.

DAY 079 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – MOOD AT SEA

MOOD AT SEA

ZEE2

Yesterday’s image I posted in black and white. Today, looking back, it did not feel quite well. Especially looking at the sky-line. At a certain moment I discovered a line of light, which I photographed. As it was a line of bleu light, I missed it in the black and white version of the image. So today, I feel the mood of yesterday’s evening at the seaside. So, lets have a prosecco!

ENJOY THE MOOD OF LIFE

DAY 078 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – SEEING AT SEA

SEEING AT SEA

zee

I’ve always liked the seaside. At stormy weather and when everything seems calm. I love the sound and the tumbling of the waves. Lots of things to see at sea.

DAY 076 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – BREATHING TIME

BREATHING TIME

SILENCE

Today it was a sunny day over here, so – in spite of hars shadows – I went to my well-known polder-land by bike. I always find silence over there and that’s where I was looking for. Most of the whites have gone for the time being. It was yellow around me. I saw the first iris and reed-mace. Looking for clean edges I found both leaves taking a bath in backlight.

DAY 075 – 100DAY JOURNAL – MOTHER’S DAY

MOTHER’S DAY

PROS

The second sunday in Holland it’s – like every year – Mother’s Day. As far as I know invented by shop-keepers, but as a child it is usual to do some handicraft. Several butterflies are passing the school fences these days to hand over to mammies with love. I think it is a good habit to show your love to your mother, at least once a year. Nowadays it is possible to pamper mothers in a different way…..

DAY 074 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – SATURATION

SATURATION

Verzadiging-2

Sometimes the world seems full of joy and vitality. However I like black and white for photography, I cannot imagine a world without color. It should be boring, I think. Today I found this colorful theme near a toyshop. So I pushed all the colors in order to achieve my imagination. I love the appearance of the different colors. I think every color is present. It’s a children world. Once I stood in front of a shop-window gaping at a colored train. The hula hoop had not been invented yet. So, I believe Picasso’s pronunciation: ‘All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.’

DAY 073 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – THREE OF A KIND

THREE OF A KIND

Friends

My invitation to do not smile seems to be a difficult and even maybe a wrong one. Maybe it’s caused by the reflection at the car. Maybe they just wanted to leave and I asked them to stay a little while. Maybe, maybe, maybe…. Anyway I like this couple of friends leaving for a special evening I guess. They were full of joy when I passed by. So they planned something special for sure, because they look like three of a kind.

I like the triangle in the composition and I think the smile beats the white shirt.

DAY 072 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – APPEARANCE

Spring in the garden means appearance and disappearance. Like any year, but it’s never boring. My former teacher advised me to start drawing. ‘Drawing is looking’, he said. However I preferred to take pictures, now I have to admit he was right.  Today I looked at some new leaves. They appear from the older ones and surprised me.

DAY 071 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – GREATEST

AND THE GREATEST IS

As we know from the good old days Muhammad Ali proclaimed himself to be the greatest. This morning a Dutch newsreader informed us about Trump’s action to fire the FBI-boss. Sitting in my garden and looking at the vulnerable violets my mind went back to the morning news and the former proclamation. Some of the violets rise above the others. Like they are saying: ‘I am the greatest’. I think it’s reaching for the sun in the best possible way. Anyway they do not harm anybody. Look for  yourself as I could not figure out which flower to be the greatest today. Maybe the background is playing a leading roll?
