Huge cruise ships in the tiny harbor of Stavanger made me feel really small.
Every time I see a sunset I have to photograph it, even when it’s the view from my window I see every day and I have captured many many times already. So I guess sunsets are my ‘Ooh, shiny!’
This was my view when I was having dinner with a friend at the Spaarne in Haarlem.
Last year in Norway I felt connected to the earth as we were climbing the rocks and fjord and enjoying very nice views like this, on our way to the top of Preikestolen.
Two weeks ago I went on a first urban exploring trip, back to the old theme park ‘t Land van Ooit. The park closed in 2007 and the only thing that is left is the pink castle and one attraction, but it was a nice trip down memory lane.
Both the type of photography trip as well as the pink castle which has a small tree growing from one of the towers were kind of unusual for me.
Ponte Luís I, connecting the town of Porto on 2 different levels.
Sunflowers in the botanical gardens in Leiden, the Netherlands
I love to take photos from the train, which results in lots of out-of-focus photos of trees.
That short moment when nature is telling you spring is coming.
Again a square photo, made with the daily photo app on my phone, of very typical ‘Dutch/Amsterdam heritage’.
When I was walking through Naarden Vesting some time ago I found this small surprise on the wall of one of the houses, a Dutch poem called ‘this is what the wall is telling’.
I’m not a translator, but I tried to translate the poem into English for the non Dutch followers:
If this wall could tell what he heard and saw
but he says: look up and read this poem
for a moment forget who and where you are, just become
as light that you will lose your weight, float
through space and see what I see: there
there you are, somewhere in between the people
