  • Action Shot

    I don't usually post photos in this blog that weren't taken by myself, but in this case I'll make an exception. Because it was taken by an interpreter colleague of mine, with my iPhone, and of me - in action. Since I don't have a lot of shots of myse...

  • "Real Men Wear Purple"

    I've heard several women complain that too many men mostly go for 'safe' colours in their choice of clothes. Their wardrobes, so they say, contain too many blacks, greys and browns. And although I can see good reasons for wearing those colours (es...

  • Perspective

    I always like shots that give a feeling of depth and perspective. Any old lines will do, as long as they lead away from the lens, and give you the feeling they go on forever. Well, this row of cabins on a ferry doesn't go on forever, but it almost...

  • Slow Shutter App for iPhone

    I'm still experimenting with the Slow Shutter app for iPhone. It's handy to have an app that allows longer exposures, but I'm finding it hard to find the right use for this app, and the right settings to get a decent picture. This is as close as I...

  • Cloud

    There are several things I find irresistible, photographically speaking, and one of them is a 'good' cloud. When I see an interesting one, I try to find a nice view to go beneath it, and I just have to take a picture. Going through my portfolio, y...

  • Family History Connection

    A few months ago I visited the smallest 'city' in the Netherlands: Bronckhorst, in the province of Gelderland. It's only a few streets with a handful of houses, but it has city rights, and is therefore officially a city. (Ironically, although in hous...

  • Emotional Value

    I think of my dear, departed Ashley every day. She was such a special dog, and such a special friend. Fortunately, there are so many photos of her to help me remember everything we did together. Funny thing is that I took quite a few photos of ...

  • PhotoForge

    Until I get some time to really go through my Olympus photos, I'm spending time that would otherwise be lost on playing around with the photo apps on my iPhone. I always have it with me, after all, so I never have to get bored, I can always get the p...

  • Comparison Experiment

    I decided on a little experiment. To be honest, I did have quite a good idea how it would turn out, but I decided to make it an experiment nevertheless. I posted similarly processed iPhone shots in the Gallery and in a blog post, both with a title...

  • Out and about with my iPhone

    On holiday I went out on an overcast and rainy day. I didn't think I would be very much inclined to take a lot of photos, so I didn't take my camera. But of course, as will always happen with a photography enthusiast, there will come a moment tha...

  • Centre Focus

    An iPhone shot on an overcast day - in picturesque surroundings, but not with the light or the sky that you would wish for. So, what to do? A play with the image in a few apps - Snapseed, among others, and the Tilt Shift app. And this is the r...

  • Airport

    Sometimes it's the simple things that can be the most striking to look at. At an airport I was looking around, wondering if there was anything nice to photograph - perhaps people greeting each other, possibly a glimpse of a good-looking aircraft ...

  • Black Rock Cottage

    I think I must have photographed Black Rock Cottage in Glencoe on almost every trip to Scotland, except the last one. My photo collection contains quite a few photos of it, it's a recurring theme in the Scotland p´ctures. And that goes for ePhotoz...

  • Great Balls of Fire

    From the Royal Armouries. Wouldn't you just hate to have these shot at you? I know I would. I'd object strongly to that, I'm certain of it. Anyway, this image was processed with Infinicam.

  • Size Matters

    Well, to some it does. Of course, I can think of plenty people who don't think size matters, I can think of plenty of situations in which bigger isn't better. But sometimes you just can't get around it - size can impress. And at the Royal Armourie...
