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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I had a walk in Berlin. Old stuff and new buildings near each other. I enjoyed it, especially the old scenery. You cannot imagine people lived over here during the cold war. Fearing every noise, every single day. Nowadays the old stuff is still there. For tourist sake I suppose. It’s good to take a photograph in order to never forget the circumstances people had to spent their lives.

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.

I love tulips. But those are gone. Gone in time. You should have seen them a week ago. They were glancing at home. But they are not at home. Where do they come from?

I really don’t know. May be Holland. Indeed several tulip varieties are coming from my home country. But the first one?

Tulips are originally from the Ottoman Empire (nowadays Turkey). They were imported to the Netherlands in the 16th century. When Carolus Clusius wrote the first important work on tulips in 1592, the flowers became so popular that his garden was regularly attacked and his flower bulbs disappeared.

This one disappeared too.

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…..

It’s pure. No secrets. No border. Just how it is. Spring. Bleu is bleu. Clear. Just enjoy!
