Handy

As I was writing the title to this blog post, I suddenly realised it has a double meaning. Unintentional, but nice. :-) I've had quite a few different cameras over the years, and sometimes more than one at a time. Before I went digital, the last three cameras I had were an unusual analogue S...

Art Deco

Some years ago, I took photos in and around an old, abandoned art deco building in the Netherlands - Radio Kootwijk. It used to be a radio station for international phone communications, but of course at some point it was redundant, and vacated. It stands in an area that reminds me a lot of some...

Barrels of Fun

I've been looking at some really nice buildings lately, one more stately and opulent than the other. But although the rooms where the rich owners used to live are very impressive, I rather like the cellars - you can have barrels of fun there with a camera! :P (Or an iPhone, in this case...)

Museum Find

I came across this rather nice Ammonite in a museum. Quite liked it.

One Year

I just realised it's exactly one year ago today I took my dearest canine friend Ashley for her last swim. Hard to believe that her heart and kidneys were already failing and that she had very little time left to live. Nothing spectacular about this portrait, photographically speaking, but this wa...

Rock, Sea and Sky

Going through my iPhone film roll, I found a few pleasant shots from a visit to Swanage. This is one of them. Post-processed with the Snapseed app. (I may actually have gone a bit over the top with the processing, but it was only to have a bit of a play.)

Tilt-Shift Tree

Don't you just love all the spring blossoms on trees and shrubs? I certainly do! But just a straight shot of a tree can be quite dull, so I was looking for something unusual to do with this one. So I included the blossomless tree on the left and used the Tilt Shift App on my iPhone to try and...

Arty Windmill

A few days ago, I took this iPhone image of a Dutch windmill in passing. Except for a relatively interesting sky it didn't have much going for it, so I started playing around with it in different apps. After taking it through about three apps, this was the result:

Washing Up Face

Many people don't like washing the dishes, they hate it when it's time to do the washing-up. I don't mind it so much myself. But from not minding it, it actually becomes fun when you have a funny face like this joining you in the activity. Made me laugh, at least, when I spotted it. Taken wit...

Bleak Day Iphoneography

It's hard to imagine now, with the blazing sunshine outside, but we did have quite a few bleak days during the winter, didn't we. On one of those days I passed this location and just had to stop and take a quick snap with my ever-ready iPhone. And what do you do with a snap from a bleak day? You ...

Wall Painting

Walking through a city street with a lot of walls with graffiti on them, this wall caught my eye. I do like good graffiti, if itīs done well itīs better than a blank wall, or than just the vandalism kind of graffiti. But this is just so much better, I think. I quite like it.

Grainy Sunset

From my iPhone film roll. The phone upped the ISO quite a bit in order to be able to take the shot. And despite the use of noise-reducing software, the picture still looks like quite grainy. But I like it. :-)

Impression: Sunset

The other day there was a sunset with a totally empty sky (except for the sun, of course), I couldn't find anything exciting to serve as foreground interest, and just didn't think that the intended approach to the subject would be very interesting. So I did something I'd never done before: I decided...

iPhoneography Sunset

What do you do when you've lost track of time and the sunset arrives quicker than you thought, and there's no time to pick up your camera? Well, besides simply enjoying the colour spectacle enfolding before your eyes, you can't, of course, ignore the possibility of having a go at capturing a mome...

Goodbye Canon 3XL

Some of you may be scratching their heads now, trying to think of a Canon model by the name of 3XL, but let me spare you the trouble and explain that 3XL doesn't refer to a camera, lens or photographic accessory at all - unless you count a T-shirt with the name of a camera manufacturer on it as a ph...
