  • The Other Side Of The Camera

    Since my youth, taking photos has almost always meant being behind the camera. I started taking photos because I wanted to have memories of outings, holidays and family gatherings, and it was me who captured pictures of the other family members, and ...

  • Every Disadvantage Has an Advantage

    Just paraphrasing Dutch football star Johan Cruijff here, he once said "Every advantage has a disadvantage" - but I suspect that, like a mathematical equation, you can turn that around as well. For several years now, I've had to work my [...censo...

  • Made Me Laugh

    You see all kinds of things on the road. Unusual vehicles, strange people, funny texts. Especially campervans seem to be a favourite kind of transport to put texts on. An acquaintance of mine, with a religious background, used to own a campervan ...

  • Sunshine

    The weather looked so promising this morning, and then everything turned grey. Pity. In such circumstances it's nice to look at photos taken in sunnier situations. These are just some dandelions, but I think the image looks quite cheerful.

  • Breda

    I used to go to the historic Dutch city of Breda often, but things have changed and I seldom have to go there anymore. Recently a work assignment brought me to the area, though, and when I went into the city centre to find a bite to eat, I was struck...

  • Handy

    As I was writing the title to this blog post, I suddenly realised it has a double meaning. Unintentional, but nice. :-) I've had quite a few different cameras over the years, and sometimes more than one at a time. Before I went digital, the l...

  • Art Deco

    Some years ago, I took photos in and around an old, abandoned art deco building in the Netherlands - Radio Kootwijk. It used to be a radio station for international phone communications, but of course at some point it was redundant, and vacated. ...

  • Barrels of Fun

    I've been looking at some really nice buildings lately, one more stately and opulent than the other. But although the rooms where the rich owners used to live are very impressive, I rather like the cellars - you can have barrels of fun there with a c...

  • Museum Find

    I came across this rather nice Ammonite in a museum. Quite liked it.

  • One Year

    I just realised it's exactly one year ago today I took my dearest canine friend Ashley for her last swim. Hard to believe that her heart and kidneys were already failing and that she had very little time left to live. Nothing spectacular about thi...

  • Rock, Sea and Sky

    Going through my iPhone film roll, I found a few pleasant shots from a visit to Swanage. This is one of them. Post-processed with the Snapseed app. (I may actually have gone a bit over the top with the processing, but it was only to have a bit of ...

  • Tilt-Shift Tree

    Don't you just love all the spring blossoms on trees and shrubs? I certainly do! But just a straight shot of a tree can be quite dull, so I was looking for something unusual to do with this one. So I included the blossomless tree on the left a...

  • Arty Windmill

    A few days ago, I took this iPhone image of a Dutch windmill in passing. Except for a relatively interesting sky it didn't have much going for it, so I started playing around with it in different apps. After taking it through about three apps, thi...

  • Washing Up Face

    Many people don't like washing the dishes, they hate it when it's time to do the washing-up. I don't mind it so much myself. But from not minding it, it actually becomes fun when you have a funny face like this joining you in the activity. Made m...

  • Bleak Day Iphoneography

    It's hard to imagine now, with the blazing sunshine outside, but we did have quite a few bleak days during the winter, didn't we. On one of those days I passed this location and just had to stop and take a quick snap with my ever-ready iPhone. And...
