The south of France. Where else? The only place where windows are open by day and night. I always have enjoyed it very much. This was shot near Foundation Meaght. A museum where I met the modern artists in a great way of presentation.

Walking around in Tuscany I met this artist on a busy street. He performed very well as far as I could see. Lots of people were looking and did not forget the little basket he put aside. I think Leonardo would be proud after so many years. That way it’s a pleasure to walk around and to look at. In some way the street is always exiting.

It’s craft. It’s originality. There at the Duomo of Florence in Tuscany. It’s old. The cradle of the Renaissance. Italy. How is it possible!

As a photographer you will be amazed about the old beauty. Wherever you look you will meet the history. It’s on the floor too.

The place Bach should sound every minute. In my mind I hear the organ playing one of my favorite items. You get curious about the organist and follow the sound to get closer to the organ. Meanwhile enjoying the colors of the painting on the ceilings and the statues situated alongside. I could not believe my eyes. So enjoy en listen to the music in your head. Yes, it was Prague again.

A long time ago I discovered my neighbour playing bass. An enthusiastic musician provided a great demonstration of his art during half an hour. I moved around him trying to get that spectacular shot of ‘strings on the move’. My flash took care of the ‘frozen’ strings while his right hand was ‘on the move’. Both we liked the results and now I have the honor to show his well-trained fingerings as he regularly does in public.

Today I have spent the most of my time on printing. Reproductions of former work. It’s fun to do it. Looking with the eyes of today means to increase contrast sometimes. I have lots of printing papers so I had to download several ICC  profiles. I call it art, because I think it is true.



DAY 015 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – STAIRS

They have a real stairs and of course you can choose for an elevator. To my todays visit the stairs  belung.

Concerning my photography, I stick close to home during March.

I have agreed with myself that I will shoot only within a radius of 5 kilometers (3.11 miles) from Papendrecht – Holland.

During the past days I went 5 kilometers west to cross the bridge over the river ‘De Noord’. On this side of Papendrecht I also found much industry. I discovered a bicycle left by miss Grace. I think she went to school. It seemed that her peers were there as well, since I found several bikes on this site. It is common in this region that many classmates bike together. You see them in large numbers to and from school with each other.

On this cold spring day, there was not much to see concerning this beautiful season. I love to go out with my camera. It’s always worth it. I used a X100S with WCL adapter to get a wide view of all the places.

And then, suddenly, I met Ciska at her school in my home town. I saw her final art project about the development of man in time. First the expression of the difference between physical growth and mental growth. And secondly the expression of ‘on the move’.

I always have a lot of respect for people who know to give expression to the imagination.

And since today, especially for Ciska, of course.

So,….. enjoy!
