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 ...

The Netherlands is "one of the world's most densely populated nations". And that has its consequences. One of them is that open spaces without any obstructions or eyesores are rare. And that you rarely get an unobstructed view of points of interest in our landscapes, be it urban landsca...

Grab Sunset

The idea I had today to visit a few locations I don't usually pass on my way home and take some photos didn't work out due to traffic queues I really wanted to avoid. So instead of a picturesque route I followed one that didn't have one thing I wanted to photograph. Finally the light went, and su...

One More

You can never have enough windmill photos, that's my motto. So when I knew I was going to visit someone in the middle of the day today in a part of the country I don't visit too often, a part that happens to be full of nice windmills, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to use the return journe...

One Less

It's a sad week for those who love (Dutch) windmills, which includes me. Youths in Burum (Friesland, a northern province of the Netherlands) decided to burn a stack of Bibles (which is a deed which should raise concern anyway, but it gets worse...), and sparks from the fire set the nearby 200 ye...

You've Got Mail

I just can't resist an interesting-sounding photography app for my iPhone, and especially not when it's free. And even more when it's normally a paid app, and temporarily free! And the Dutch iPhone Club keeps me well informed, so I regularly come across new ones. (I'm now having to create a third pa...

Singled Out

Variation on the theme of today's upload to the Gallery. I keep looking at my shots from yesterday, because it was such a wonderfully sunny day, and today is such a dark, dreary and rainy day. In this shot I've singled out a daffodil and concentrated on it, with the windmill just a background blu...

Grey Skies Today

Today the skies were mainly grey and uninteresting. And normally you wouldn't see me taking many photos on such a day. But having just bought a new app since it was on special offer for 79 eurocents, PhotoForge, I needed something to play with, so I took a picture of this tree-lined lane. Nothin...
