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...

Focus on a Footstep

I'm much too busy with work today to take the camera out and enjoy the snow... :-( But of course I just had to do something with it anyway. And I came up with the idea of a quick footstep just outside the patio door, and this treatment. Nothing spectacular, but at least I did something with the w...

Engrossed

Today this little girl in the supermarket reminded me of what I used to do when my parents were doing boring things, like shopping, in places where there were comics around: read until they were done, and then with much regret tear myself away from the reading material...

Art Deco

Art Deco buildings are quite rare nowadays, and since I like the style, I'm always happy to see it when people are taking good care of a nice specimen. This is the Tuschinski film theatre in Amsterdam, which was restored to its original Art Deco state a few years ago, much to my delight. What yo...

Almost Christmas

Christmas is almost upon us, people! No white Christmas this year, weather forecasters assure us, and lots of rain before Christmas Day, and possibly some on Christmas Day. Oh well. So it's better to be inside a lot, I suppose. Even for shopping. Which I did, as you can see below. This is a nicel...

Ice Rink

I've seen quite a few ice skating rinks in my time, both permanent and temporary, but the one on the old market in Bruges must be one of the more nicely decorated/lit. What do you think of this tree, for instance? Looks wonderful, I thought myself. And the iPhone did surprisingly well in capturing i...
