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...

Brugge Hat & Towers

On a trip through Belgium, I decided to make a stop at Brugge and visit the Christmas market in the old market square. I was standing in front of a market stall that sold scarves and hats, looked up, and saw this. I rather liked the unusual combination. :-)

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 ...
