DAY 033 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – CHOOSING

Choosing can be difficult. Today I had that problem. It’s a sunny day and I experimented with my camera-settings. So shadows +2 and highlights -1. Spotmetering and ISO100. The look should be quite contrasty. In general, however, I think colors need more black and b&w needs more contrast. Especially whites. Look for yourself and

ENJOY!


And now (below) I pushed the contrast a lille bit with the curve tool in Lightroom and add some grain (25%).

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 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.

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 026 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – RECOGNISE

I think you recognise the flower I photographed this evening. She is well known by herself especially in France. I remember some holidays I met her before. Anyway the evening sun gives a special feeling yo every image.  I like the diagonal in the square format. So for tonight:

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 022 – 100 DAY JOURNAL(2) – SUMMER !!!!

It’s summer !!! The coming three months it’s summer. A wonderful time of the year. A period of wine, lavendel, butterflies, flowers, some foliage, olive trees, caravanning, camping, travel, campfire and much more.

Maybe your going to the beach – start early in the morning and come back late in the evening to avoid traffic jam. For today:

ENJOY !!

 

DAY 013 – 100 DAY JOURNAL(2) – POTATOE

Today it’s time for potatoes. Just before a cloud-burst I arrivered at my kitchen-garden. A huge cloud full of rain  exploded above my head. So I had had little time to shove some potatoes and some salad. My daily meal: I like it especially now when it comes from my own garden. I recommand it to everyone.

ENJOY

DAY 011 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – FORMS

I like forms. Especially black and white forms. And if they come from nature I like them very much. I feel like Gaudi. He too liked forms from nature. He placed them in his famous Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. I have been there a long time ago and climbed all the stairs. You can watch his forms from above, over the city. Maybe you see my forms too.

ENJOY !
