ABSTRACT

Sometimes reality presents itself differently. You think you guess it, but it turns out to be something else. I think you should look at what it means to you. Regardless of the fact itself. That is quite an art. It has to do with letting go of judgment.

Can you look openly at something that you do not know what it is or what it represents. And maybe it means nothing and it is only about the color. I photographed the skin of an onion. It has something of the universe as it appears later when you look at it. A wonderful phenomenon. Something small that is immeasurable.

ENJOY!

NIGHTS

The nights in Sweden are very special. You always camp somewhere by a lake or something. Then the sunset is a special experience in itself. But the nights are certainly unique. Light is always there, somewhere. Especially if you are there around the longest day. Spectacular even. Especially if you are not used to this. Reading a book at midnight and not turning on a light is a special experience. Taking a photo in the middle of the night is also special.

ENJOY!

LIGHT

The light is always there. Sometimes you have to look for it. When you find it you are a lucky one. Without light no live. No photography too.

In nature light is responsible for a lot of things. But to capture the light is a different story. I hope I succeeded.

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!

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!

DRAMATIC PLAY

Sometimes it’s like dramatic play at the beach. This time I saw a windsurfer in his wetsuit. Flowing with the wind he engaged. the total environment was like a sad story. Clouds accompany the waves and reflect on the beach. A lonely seagull looks at it. I am passing by. The only enjoying people……

ENJOY!

STORMY

Nowadays it remains stormy. Like in 2007, December on the beach. It’s cloudy too. But a photographer always enjoys. Just when the weather is bad. I look for the reflection and succeeded in my efforts. Rule of thirds may be. Anyway….

ENJOY!

MAGIC

Let there be light! This time, walking in Amsterdam, I encountered the museum of Vincent van Gogh.

In the neighborhood I saw this window. The closing forgotten by an employee I think. Anyway it brakes the pattern of a modern building. So I had tot photograph it.

Sometimes the eye sees the light even before you think about your camera.

ENJOY!
