DAY 038 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – DEPTH

Some people – like my good old father – feel dizzy when they look at depth. Once I saved a wife on a mountain. The hill being too steep. In my home town I found a ditch with a rail of which I took a portrait. Please don’t look down, but

ENJOY !

DAY 037 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – AS USUAL

Some people react by saying ‘as usual’. Looking at some gardens in my home town Papendrecht. However you can ask for yourself how usual nature can be. Every time – in spring – a new miracle is happening. So

ENJOY !

DAY 034 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – AMSTERDAM

As I told you before I love Amsterdam. It’s not about the tourists, but about the people over there, always talking with that special nasal sound. And they always have the floor, whatever you say. I love them. Today I visit Mokum (as some of them name it). Especially I photographed some shadows. This time in orange, because of the Dutch Ladies. They are finalist too in France !! So

ENJOY !

DAY 031 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – DUTCHY

How Dutchy can it be…..! It’s a windy day and I photographed it. In my mind I saw the image and so I went to the mills of Kinderdijk. As I aspected there were lots of tourists from Japan and I heard some Belgians too. I did not aspect to receive a postcard from a man on his bike, saying: “A free picture for you sir”. So I accepted it, because it’s free and I am Dutch, you know. I did not aspect it to come from ‘the bible belt’. On the backside he had printed: “Lord, save me!’. I do not think it was about the windy day….. So I enjoyed in my own way an I hope he did too.

ENJOY !

DAY 029 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – FLYING

It takes a couple of weeks before they fly away. The seeds of the tree in my garden. Did you know I can fly too? I am not only a photographer but I am a flyer too. I fly in my dreams. I fly low over fields and people are looking at me. They wave and ask ‘how do you do that?’. I never give any answer. According to my daughter this happens early in the morning. I do not harm anybody. So I like to go on with it like my tree does within some weeks.

ENJOY !

 

DAY 027 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – HARVEST

The first harvest of my back- garden! I love it! ‘It’s a beautiful day’ sung good old Freddy Mercury. Meaning something different I think. But I’am sure he could have meant it. Anyway I do! So

ENJOY !

 

 

DAY 025 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – PROBLEMS

This shot I made with my Fiji X Pro2. A mirrorless camera. I first saw the Jasmin in France during a holliday over there. It was 2008 July.


I made it with my Canon 5D at that time.

Nowadays I mostly shoot my 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) with my iPhone, because it’s easy shooting. The filters I use are from Snapseed most of the time.

However I mostly like the shots made by my Xpro2. Maybe you guess why.

I think I have a problem. Which one to choose. I think I follow my heart.

ENJOY!

DAY 024 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – AIRCO

According to the wheater forecast the temperature rises up to 30-31 degrees Celsius. This means full use of airco systems, where ever they may be. As I am not the owner of a beast like that I am going to swim. I think this evening to be a perfect moment. So think about that noisy thing and meanwhile:

ENJOY!

 

DAY 023 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – WOODY

Some years ago I’ve got Woody Woodpecker during my birthday. I built it on a tree in front of my house. As I planned to move I tried to take Woody with me. Impossible. Woody seems to love his tree as he does not move for one millimeter. To the new owners of my house I advise:

ENJOY

DAY 019 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – BACK IN TIME

Coming back in time has been essential to avoid rain and  thunderstorms. Camping for some days is a pleasure to do. Especially when the wheater is pretty. Nowadays the Netherlands are confronted with low pressure areas. So you have to be back home in time. My trip back home has been succesfull, however I could not avoid a litlle bit of rain.

ENJOY !
