Santa & Snowman

Everyone and everything is getting ready for Christmas, and there are Christmas products to be bought everywhere. This mass of Santa's and Snowmen drew my eye.

Present

My Secret St. Nicholas has done very well, he has clearly taken my hobby preferences and needs into account. So far Ive been using a belt pack or a light shoulder bag for my Olympus OM-D EM-5, but sometimes a ready case is just handier. And thats what I got, so Im happy! Leather as well. ...

St. Nicholas

In the Netherlands we didn't use to give each other presents at Christmas, but on the 5th of December: St. Nicholas Day - and many people still do (although giving presents at Christmas is gaining ground, and of course there are also those who like have it both ways and do it on both days). We call ...

Welcoming

This is such a welcoming sight - I always like seeing it. Gives me a feeling of excitement, somehow, and the feeling of coming home, since I consider this country as my second home, having lived here many years ago. Taken a while back. I came across it in my iPhone film roll, and although it's no...

Rain and Sunshine

As people who dont just live inside our houses, but go outside as well, I suppose were not always too happy with the fact that weather is changeable, and that sunshine does sometimes make place for rain - or worse. But as photographers, we should be happy about that. Because changeable weather ...

Two Tenners

Over the years, I've become a big fan of buying used goods. I'm on eBay, on Marktplaats (a Dutch subsidiary of eBay), I like jumble sales, car boot sales, 'kringloopcentra' ('recycling centres', it's what the Dutch call used goods stores with or without a charitable purpose) and charity shops. When ...

Not The Orient

Rickshaws and an oriental restaurant in the background. But not the Orient at all. This is Amsterdam. Over the years, entrepeneurs in Amsterdam have become creative in finding solutions for the transport of people through the city, and the use of rickshaws was one of those solutions. You can als...

Number One or Number Two

I like traveling to different countries, seeing different places, cultures, foods and traditions. But not all of those different things appeal as much to me as others. In fact, to some I have an averse reaction. Take these French hole-in-the-ground toilets, for instance: I really hate to ...

Canal

The thing many people like so much about Amsterdam, is the many canals. (There's a reason why it's sometimes called The Venice of the North, I suppose.) Well, I'm one of those people, I love those canals. They make the typical Amsterdam look. And of course they look even better when you can c...

Typical for Amsterdam

Every major city probably has flower stalls, but those in Amsterdam are different, because you can buy more than cut flowers there. They cater for more than just the local public that wants to take flowers home and put them in a vase. After all, Amsterdam is the most popular tourist destination in t...

Tiles

A recent trip to the city where I was born, Amsterdam, reminded me of the fact that it contains so many wonderful old buildings. Contrary to other cities in the country, like Rotterdam and Arnhem, it largely escaped the destruction of the Second World War, so it's full of old architecture. Of cou...

Three Versions

Some time ago I took a quick grab shot with my iPhone of a windmill I passed in a part of my country that I don't often visit. I had a play with the image in a few apps, and I thought I'd show you how very different some of the results were. Below you will see, respectively, a Snapseed version a...

Head to Head

I'm not used to hearing sounds like explosions in my shower. But yesterday I did. The shower head - supposedly a good product, by a manufacturer whose name usually inspires confidence in me - made a strange rumbling sound when I turned it on, and then after it had been on for a few moments, it su...
