DAY 070 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – COLORS

 

FIETS

COLORS

Today I found colors on my way. Inside the restaurant they showed several bottles with a different color in order to invite people passing by. In one of the corners, near a window, I saw the green/yellow combination combining the parked bike. In no time another biker passed the window. I felt like HCB pressing the button in time. The decisive moment. At home I saw the biker passing had a red cycle-bag too. Lucky me.

Up till now, day 70, I still wonder about seeing something of interest day by day. Meanwhile I enjoy the process of exploring my cameras.

I recommend every photographer to shoot daily, because like Louis Armstrong sang a long time ago:

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD

I agree and repeat once more:

ENJOY LIFE

DAY 066 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – LIGHT

‘YOUR LIFE IS: THE WAY YOU LOOK AT IT’

That’s what I red today in an article of a magazine. So I said to myself: stop grumbling and live your life! So the light goes on….. Especially today, because it’s living a cold and windy day with no sunshine at all. Yes, I saw the light in a small pub in the neighborhood. Just in the window-sill it was waiting for me. I immediately shared it with my kids in order to start the day at a same level. As a photographer you should know it’s all about light, but sometimes it’s good something reminds you to it.

DAY 047 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – TOGETHER AGAIN

TOGETHER AGAIN

WIT.JPGF7753-bewerkt-2

Sometimes life seems like a repetition of yesterday. The truth is it’s new whine at an other place to be. Today I enjoyed the beach with afterwards a glass of wine. Walking along the beach means getting mindful. You don’t have to think. Listening the waves is enough to fill the hours passing by. First walking against the wind and later on – when the wind was with us – thinking of what to do at the end. Ordering wine at the end is a efficacious medication to remove cold. Today, without any words, the cold wind instruct us to order that good old prescription. It worked out very well.

DAY 046 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – TOGETHER

WIJN

 

TOGETHER

Sometimes it’s a good habit to finish the working day with a glass. However I did not work at all today, I found such a habit extremely relevant to it. Especially when your partner in crime shows her own interests for such a action.

At restaurant Opazzo in Rotterdam they know everything about wine. And of course about Italian food too. The place is well suited for relaxing at the end of the (working) day. During this small drink festival I found plenty of testing time to photograph with the aperture fully open. I liked to discover both circles.

DAY 044 – 100 DAY JOURNAL – HAT

HOED

Every day is a new day. Normally, at the start of the day, I do not know what to photograph during the day. Today started the same way. At lunch in a small restaurant I saw this hat on a hall-stand. To me it seemed to be a little bit suspicious. A hat from the late thirties, may be. Entering for lunch I saw the other dressing of the location. There I met the books of the famous Sherlock Holmes. A nice opportunity to put both things together in a black and white expression. So I used my favorite Silver Efex Pro 2 and choose for a N+3 pushproces, of which I think it suites well for the magic of this old stuff. Anyway I love it.

MEESTERPROEF

Het is een nieuwe tent, zoals dat zo mooi heet.

Je kunt er dus eten en drinken in een zogenoemde industriële sfeer.

In het voormalig Honig complex te Nijmegen wordt volgens oude ambachten gekookt en maken ze gebruik van lokale producten. Op de website vertelt men ondermeer dat ze pekelen en roken. Ze maken zelf worsten, paté’s, mosterd, jams en chutneys. Daarnaast serveren ze vlees dat de hele nacht heeft gegaard.

Het was ‘gewoon’ lekker.

De locatie is vanzelfsprekend een fotografische uitdaging en schreeuwt om beelden in zwart-wit. Nostalgie ten top. De sfeer van passie en ambacht heb ik in één beeld samengebracht. Daarnaast is er volop ruimte om je tussen de gangen door uit te leven en je creativiteit de vrije loop te laten. Wel keuzes maken.

ENJOY!
