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!

UNIVERSE

Once I shot Joris and added:

“THE UNIVERSE IS ALWAYS CLOSE TO HOME’.

Today I think it has been unchanged. It’s still there if you want to see it. Even when the circumstances are worse.

“Where the light comes in’, sang Cohen.

 

ENJOY!

VINCENT

There’s something build in our mind. Years of indoctrination have been made about Vincent van Gogh. A man who appeals to the imagination. It all started by reading his letters to his brother. A visit to a museum. Experiencing his metamorphoses about light and colors. Here in Denmark I met hem seeing the sloping willow with the poppies and the wheat field. I had to think of him immediately. I could no resist to make a photograph because of the lines and so on….

ENJOY!

TODAY

My today’s shot is from the early morning. I saw the light coming through the window. Withdrawn it seems. Light on the Valentine’s rose standing nearby in the room.

A beauty of light. Light that likes any photographer.

For me it was not easy to make a tack sharp image. On the other hand it was my pleasure to see the light.

I like the color too.

It feels a kind of magic.

ENJOY !
