I look into Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture. The pious radiate towards you. That suits a Sunday morning. Art makes you happy, although her life was not always happy. Besides the color of the stone, the shapes are of great beauty. Good to keep that up all your life. I like the shapes and lines. It really is a gem.

It is white wherever you look. Inside one of the buildings in Insel Hombroich.

It remains fascinating.

It echoes there. The ultrasound will meet you.

A place where you can think.

A place where you like to stop and look. Look at the whites.

There is a kind of peace in this place.

The architects of Insel Hombroich have followed their heart.  Walking around is an experience! It is art in its best form. An experience in learning to look differently. Photographically it is a challenge too. You notice you walk around in an environment where creativity reigns. Create what not exists before. New vistas and insights. A park called an island. Slim and balanced design. A beautiful sight with materials that have resist the test of time. Design and ideas are going together. Just art. A place to spoil yourself. Even lunchtime – a delicious experiment and steeped in pure nature. A place to return again.

It is Paris for the last time this month. A unique view from the museum.

During my visit at museum ‘De Lakenhal’ in Leiden, a city in The Netherlands, I saw some work of Jan Wolkers.

Some work in glass, some paintings and some poetry. He inspired me enormously and from that day on my life went different. More decisions had to be made.

I bought a book about his work called: “Marszwart & Titianwit”. Its about painting with black and white, but for me its about inspiration.

I made a picture of one of his works with a view on Leiden. The city and museum he visited as a child.

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.

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 ‘Concertgebouw” in Amsterdam opened at April 11, 1888. The Van Gogh museum is from 1973. Both the buildings are not to compare.

But when you visit both “arena’s” you get the feeling. Or you want to play and compose, or you want to paint. In both cases you will get ‘the essence of life’.

That’s why I am once a year in one of those ‘arena’s’. And walking in Amsterdam in a feast for the eyes of a photographer.

“I am still there”, I hear them saying. A crispy silence occurs passing by the graves of the Jewish cemetery in Prague. It is overwhelming. What a sorrow! The image speaks for itself. Messages are given passing the stones. A leave falls down and stays over there. Another message of cooperation I think.

Once in a while in photography you met something to keep. This time I visit an old castle on the Island of Öland in Sweden. It must have been in Bornholm, because I’ve forgotten the name of the castle. Anyway it happened to be an experience in black and white. There I realized the lessons of Ansel Adams about the Ten zones of his zone system. The period with my Hasselblad an the film with 12 exposures. My darkroom too.

I remembered some annoying people came along. They were walking through my frame and I had to wait. But then they stood over there enjoying the view. They were of great value in my exposure. Still thanks folks!
