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 ...

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...
