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
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
