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.




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





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.

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:



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:



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.


DAY 016 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – CHAIRS

Today I used my bike riding through ‘het Deeler Woud’. I have been  treated well by my wife. A real lunch with a salad and bread with mackerel. Delicous. We were sitting in the garden of restaurant ‘de Woeste Hoeve’. A place where Napoleon has been before! In the middle of nature. Somehow people are noisy. However we dispose of national highways, it leads to a lot of noise. Happyly I saw wonderfull old chairs on the pavement of the restaurant.


DAY 012 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – WET

Today it’s wet. It’s raining all day long. I planned a short holiday for the next coming days. So I take some books with me and of course my camera. I plan to design a lay-out  for my kitchen garden. Just in order to be more profitable next year. So I sceduled plenty of work to do during rainy days. Maybe the sun will shine and I really hope so. For today just





Een van de fotozaken die ik een tijd geleden heb beoefend is “panning”. Meebewegen, zodat het idee van snelheid ontstaat. ‘Oefening baart kunst’  is een gezegde. En dat is nu opnieuw waarheid gebleken. Bovendien moet je niet in de volle zon fotograferen, want dan kom je niet goed uit met je belichting. En beetje speelruimte heb je wel nodig. Panning is leuk om te doen en leerzaam bovendien. Met een redelijk lange sluitertijd en een genoeg gesloten diafragma kom je een heel eind.

Zwervend door Dordrecht viel mij op hoeveel duo’s dat er zijn. Het kostte geen enkele moeite het volgende onderwerp te vinden. Zwerven is eigenlijk het leukste dat er bestaat. Je ontmoet steeds nieuwe dingen die de moeite van het fotograferen waard zijn. Bovendien roept het ene onderwerp het andere op. Wordt vervolgd dus. Het is gewoon een kwestie van kijken en nog eens kijken en ondertussen de fantasie laten gaan.
