Reduced To This

I'll let the picture speak for itself...

There'll Be Bluebirds Over...

... the White Cliffs of Dover, according to Very Lynne - but I suspect that seagulls are a more likely sighting there. Oh well. I've always liked those cliffs. Not only are they such a nice welcome when you arrive in Dover, but they really are a sight to behold. And I've seen them often. I ju...

Unusual

I've done something very, very unusual today. Well, that is to say, it's highly unusual for me. I know other people do it. But I normally don't. I think that in five years or so I've only done it twice. Or possibly three times. Which isn't very often, is it. Not in view of my many uploads. I dele...

Goodbye, Ashley

Today I've done what has been unthinkable for so long, but became inevitable in the end: I've said goodby to my best canine friend ever, my dear Ashley. Read my previous two blog posts if you want to know why this was necessary, because I don't really want to repeat that, I just want to re-live g...

Ashley's Holiday

The health of my best canine friend Ashley is going downhill so fast now that I've reluctantly concluded that it's time to say goodbye. But before that actually happens, I want to remember the good times. And those good times are so recent - even just last week, she was on a short holiday with m...

Ashley's Meds

My poor doggy is like a pharmacy on four legs by now. Apart from the cancer that she beat but which seems to be returning now, the arthrosis, the allergies and skin condition, she has a number of new, additional problems now as well. And after announcing one of them the vet didn't even want to give ...

The End of an Era

Today it was a final goodbye to my Canon kit, and a hello to my new small and lightweight Olympus kit: an OM-D E-M5 with a 12-50 lens. Talking to the dealer, I reminisced about my early photographic beginnings. It all started with my father feeling that if I was to take photographs, that was ...

Vintage Pulpit Rock

Even when I'm taking photos with a 'proper' camera, I nowadays often can't resist taking pictures with my iPhone as well and having a play with them. And this is one of the results. Not exactly Gallery material, but there's still something about it that I like.

Reenactment

I really like the idea of reenactments, they put you in the middle of something that really brings history to life for you, especially when a lot of care is taken to make it as realistic as possible. But apart from a jousting event in Devon I'd never been to anything like that. Until recently, when ...

So, the decision's been made. I'm selling my Canon kit and going for something smaller and lighter. (See the forum thread here.) I've been reluctant to make the decision, because I felt very much attached to my trusty Canon 20D and the excellent lenses I'd collected, but I just don't want to walk...

ShakeItPhoto

I was looking at different photo apps and came across ShakeItPhoto. To be honest, I don't know why it bought it, but at the same it seemed like a good idea. Okay, only 1.59 euros, and I think it was probably the special offer of a temporary price of 99 eurocents that did it, but still - it's really ...

Delta Works

One of the aspects of my country that I'm quite proud of, is the way we've made a part of the earth inhatibable that many wouldn't have regarded as being usable for human beings at all. After all, two thirds of the country is below sea level. What it takes to make and keep an area like that inhab...

GrungeTastic

I've been discovering of late that adding grunge effects to images can make simple and even quite dull-looking shots more interesting. But of course, like everything in life, you can overdo it. And the app I tried this time can easily drive one to use over the top effects, I found. But the way it do...

(Im)perfect = Photogenic

I find it interesting that both perfection and imperfection seem to make someone or something photogenic. I won't make this a long, philosophic piece about the subject, but I've come to the conclusion that we like looking at photos of perfect-looking people, but that and old, worn face makes for an ...

No Photo Blog

Yesterday on my way back from a location in the southwestern part of the Netherlands, I had been hoping to take some photos of locations that I don't often get to see. But of course the sky went grey soon after I got in the car, and eventually it started to rain, at some point quite heavily. And ...
