Sinds enkele maanden onderhou ik een moestuin. Een geweldige belevenis van begin tot zonsondergang. Vooral ook in de vroege morgen als de zon net wakker is. Dan schijnt het licht over de tuin en is het mijmeren in de verte niet van de lucht. Geluiden komen tevoorschijn en alles ontwaakt. Gedachten over wat allemaal nog kan verschijnen. Ze verdwijnen gelukkig ook weer. Het fijne is dat niets moet en alles kan. Dus:

I first have to apologise for not updating my DAILY JOURNAL (2) since July 9th. Due to holidays at one side but more to the existance of annoying Instagram and 500px. I don’t like it anymore at this time. It’s because I feel a strong obligation to send a picture every day. I know it’s the consequense of keeping a daily journal, but as I feel it today I have to force myself too much which I do not like. So I quit some days ago. For the time being I blog at moments I like to do it with no obligations or commitments. For example the picture I took on July 22nd when I walked at the beach at the isle Texel in the Netherlands. Just being there and looking around. Feeling something to happen and telling me a story. Just informing me to RELAX. And that’s what I’m doing right now.

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


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



Today I attend the lectures. Not really off course, but a kind of. Because of the need to spent some time in a town called Nijmegen (my wife visited the barbershop) I was looking for a ice-cream. As I could not find any store I decided to visit a well known tearoom in the center of that town. So I ordered a coffee and a small cake. Surprisingly they offered a so called ‘hazelino’. I had to try it out. It did not feel like punishing, so

“It’s a fine start of the weekend”, she said. And she was right. The waitress of the restaurant somewhere in Arnhem. I went there because today the estate agent of my current house informed me about the selling price possible. So the start of the weekend in my new home town  was enjoyable. My only today’s advise remains:

DAY 032 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – MOVIE

Today, in the polder, I made my first movie (later more). It’s a pleasure to be over there, because the sun is shining and it’s a little windy out there. So I enjoyed and meanwhile you see swans passing by and hear goose up in the sky. A little coot flies away, scared as she is for the swan, starting to fly. It feels like the poster of KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines), because the sky is filled bleu. Anyway I like my b&w to compose and to see the light falling.

DAY 030 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – GARLIC

Today I saw new garlic. Garlic from a back-garden. I made a black and white picture of it.  I like black and white above colour. I don’t know why, but it feels that way.

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.




I just remembered my daily journal. I almost forgot it for today. So I have to use my fantasy. I just red something about “playing all day”. Nice is it, don’t you think? Playing  is using your fantasy. Like I do right now. I found a toy car in the window of my bedroom and I made a picture of it. Doing nothing else but playing. So
