WATER

Always the water is somewhere. Maybe you have to dig deep, maybe its on the surface. But it always can be found.

It’s easy said when you do not live in Africa. But I made an image of  the water nearby during a very wet day. A workshop on the island Tiengemeten in the Netherlands.

ENJOY!

OLD STUFF

Sometimes I like to print like they did in former days.

ENJOY!

CURVE

In the south of France I met this curve. Especially in black and white I like it. It’s near the museum of Picasso in Antibes.

ENJOY!

DUTCH BIKE

How Dutch can it be? I encountered this bike somewhere on the beach at the North Sea in the Netherlands. Something typically Dutch is that it is locked. You don’t need any thoughts of being used by somebody as it is full of sand. I cannot imagine how the sand stuck to the bike. The deserted beach suits the time we live in today.

ENJOY!

TODAY’s LIGHT

Near Veenendaal (Holland) I met today’s light. A kind of magic at the Prattenburg location. A free-for-public park in The Netherlands. Amazing light and a starting spring. Nothing more to ask for. Just being there with the public at home during corona. A real relief. At least for me and some other photographers.

ENJOY!

LAYERS

What I like about Photoshop are capitals and layers. This time it’s Italy with her layers. I like such viewpoints. Looking at nothing, but seeing distance.

It’s the distance because of the foreground. No foreground no distance. In that order. That’s how I learned it.

ENJOY!

VIEW

I love that view, but wonder if the inhabitants also like it. Maybe they are used to it. Anyway on my way to Tuscany I met this view in Switzerland. Traveling means new views, new people, new culture. New ideas too. It’s always a pleasure to travel. Especially when you wear a camera.

ENJOY!

CATHOLIC

Seeing this photograph, the first thing I had to think about was: Catholic. Distinctively a Catholic Church. From outside, seeing the cross, I immediately recognized it.

Of course, being in Tuscany, you will never meet a church of a different believe. However I did not seek for it.

According to a Dutch performer, you are born catholic. A way of being. It’s in the blood.

I do not know how it is to be born as a photographer. Does it exist? At my birthday my father and mother gave me a Agfa Clack growing nine. I never regret that decision.

ENJOY!

TUSCANY

One of my favorite photographs is the one I took in Tuscany. A vineyard maybe, or an olive grove. Anyway a beautiful view from one of the hills at Tuscany. I remember the soft wind blowing in my face. The trees are waving a little bit. A nice view in the morning sun. On my way to drink coffee in a nearby village.

ENJOY!

THREE OF A KIND (MAYBE FOUR)

I had to think about that game when seeing this photograph. During a walk in the forest near my home I encountered this tree with her old leaves. The leaves of the former year. They are waiting for spring to come. However they are decorative you can no longer live with the old ones. They have to make space for the new generation to come. There’s no longer room for the old ones. No matter their experiences. You can look at them with a certain pleasure. Look at the shadows may be. Or just look. That’s the only thing that remains. Look at, may be look for…..

ENJOY!
