April 16, an oldie today.

Well, because I was in Düsseldorf (Germany) yesterday, an older picture today. It was made at the end of a gray day in December, there was not much daylight left. I love the combination of he seagulls and the blueish light. Actually I came to photograph the Christmas Market, but that didn't inspire me. Photo: Düsseldorf, 14/12/09 3.52 pm.

April 14

It was a wrong idea to take and publish a photo every day. One photo a day doesn't work for me (anymore). It is very compulsive and often forces me to take the wrong creative decisions. So I decided to quit and give myself ample time to breath freely and photograph when everything is right. Especially time and opportunity. Also I will take the freedom to post some former photos of which I think that they are interesting for more people. Today a selfie I made some time ago in a train toilet. Looking into the mirror I felt myself in a strange cosmos. Lelystad_Almere 15/4/9. 9.51 pm.

It was very quiet in the Foam museum. But the atmosphere was great, almost serene.....And yes I liked the portrait exhibition 'van Loon' , and couldn't quite understand the function of the enlarged test strips in another show. Amsterdam, 1.37 pm.

Sometimes it is necessary to add an extra element to a photograph to emphasize the atmosphere at a spot. Here I used the shadow of my hand. Diemen, 5.03 pm.

A message for the spectators at my web log. I know you're looking out there, according to my counting system. Thank you for looking at my photographs until now. Hope to see you tomorrow & the day after tomorrow & the day.......This project of a picture a day will be continued, as far I am concerned. Photo: Diemen, 4.32 pm.

At the moment I am intrigued by capturing nothingness in photographs. Btw that's not the same as lack of quality. But some spots can be so desolated, containing no excitement at all. Still those places trigger me. The photo today is made of such a spot. It is to be seen from the train platform for de direction to Amsterdam. Of course I needed the gray weather for the picture. Diemen 4.08 pm.

The experiment today was about a relationship between a panoramic format and a relatively long exposure time just to capture the feeling of a passing rally against the high housing rents in Amsterdam. I must say that I fully agree with the purpose of the rally. It is an outrageous shame how housing rents are increased to a point that most people just cannot afford. At the other hand house owners are supported in many ways. Amsterdam 2.45 am.

2 things about this photograph. 1: it is about the anonymity of a big city. Although having a small dog tells something about a character. 2: This was taken by hand with 1/10 of second. Sharpness thanks to the electronic lens stabilization at the modern camera. Antwerp 4.58 pm.

Cycling home I saw this abandoned night terrace. I fell in love with the three red balls, which functioned as some kind of a romantic illumination. By the way it was one of the finest days of the year until now. Amsterdam 7.40 pm.

When I looked out of the bedroom window this morning I saw the sky being covered with all kinds of plane stripes. Looked like a beautiful abstract painting. Diemen is only a few miles away from the national airport Schiphol. Diemen, 7.57 am.
