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
Capturing our shadows while walking in Bergen, to prove that we had some sunny days in Norway!
When I like to take a quiet moment for myself I love to go for a walk, preferably somewhere where I can walk through some nice alleys and streets with cute houses. Last summer in Norway I discovered that the cities in this country are more quiet then the cities I used to go to. As I was travelling with my good friend Daria I was not completely alone, but walking through some of the quiet streets was a perfect way to relax during our holiday.
