I was just figuring out if the combination of the painting of the roses on the van in the foreground & the bare tree in the background could result into an interesting photograph. Then the blond lady passed by. Sheer coincidence. But the collection of these elements in one picture is intriguing me. So this is the photo of the day. Amsterdam, Dapper Market, 3.59 pm.

Went to Antwerp for a day. Always a strange experience. It feels abroad for me, but I can use my own language. Beautiful light. As Usual, I felt very much at home in this city. Antwerp, Belgium 0.54 pm

One of the specialties of photography is the ability to make boring places more vivid. This a small parking lot not far from the spot where I live. I consider it a rather ugly place, especially if it is such a grey rainy day as today. Still the photograph has some vivid elements. This photo fits into one of my ongoing projects, a series about spots in my hometown Diemen. It is about the feeling I have about these places, to me it is as if Diemen is still unfinished. More about Diemen to follow during this year. Diemen, 3.14 pm.

A very happy and healthy 2015 to you all! This year I want to make some kind of a photo diary. To exploit some of the great photographic possiblities every day life offers.
The first day of the year always gives me a bleak feeling. Not that I drank that much the evening before, but the new year is still empty, waiting for the things to come. Diemen, 2.21 pm.

At night by the Seaside.
Being at night by the seaside is a magical experience. It is alienating, strange. It feels a bit like being on another planet.
A plane is flying over. It´s almost like an ufo. CastricumaanZee. 14/10/9. 9.50 pm

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (138) Because of a Fragmentary Nature (138)
Last summer our family spent some wonderful days in Vienna. It was a surprisingly interesting city. Very vivid. One of the most interesting spots was the 'Prater' a large permanent fancy fair. Here was one of the key scenes in the film “The 3rd Man”, a good old time classic. Especially at night the atmosphere was some kind of fairy tale.
Other key scenes of this film were situated in the sewers. But I did not go there.

some more Self-Portraits?
Well, it’s quite a long time since I published something on this blog. After a very fine summer with some beautiful trips and some very inspiring workshops I gave at the Dutch foundation Buitenkunst (means something like Outside Art) (www.buitenkunst.nl ) it is time to leave something on the web. A few days ago my colleague Marco Bakker asked me, what do you call them, selfies or self-portraits. Self-portraits I promptly said, but now I am not so sure anymore.
They’re a kind of moments from a film of my life, a kind of still photographs. So I call them SELF STILLS!

Vanwege Fragmentarische Aard (137) Because of a Fragmentary Nature (137)
A shopping window is a favorite subject matter for me. I can play endlessly with reflections of street life, letter signs, poster in the window, clothes, mannequins and sometimes even real people put into just one single image, which has only existed on my camera sensor. The power of Photography! Up: Amsterdam 14/06/12 4.50 pm Under: Aachen 14/06/11 5.02 pm

Het land langs # 25 (Along the Country Side # 25)
Up: Cycling around the country I saw this . Two years ago there was a huge fire at this spot. This tree was the only tree trunk that was left. This image was made on a day that planes flew over and left their white stripes in the blue. I love this photo because these phenomena leave a strange uncanny atmosphere. (Schoorlse Duinen 14/05/16 4.21 pm)
Under: Some miles further on north. Very strange arrow on the cycle lane. Also strange almost unreal atmosphere. (Schoorlse Duinen 14/06/20 4.42 pm)
