It has been quite a while since I posted something on this blog. Summertime you know. That meant to me a trip to Berlin, doing 4 workshops at www.Buitenkunst.nl , and having a good time with my wife and family. Summer is almost over now so I want to show photographs again on a regular base. I made a lot of photos, but did not find the time to postprocess.
To start today with self-portraits, which have the theme: Man & Light. Sometimes I was almost swallowed by the Light.

This tree is standing in an area which in April 2010 was almost completely burnt down. The only way to get there is by feet or by bike. Cars are not allowed. It is a strange area, only sand and some trees which were partially left behind by the fire. It feels like being on another planet. Very barren en lost. The tree at the picture is some kind of monument for me. I always stop there for a while.
All Photos: Schoorlse Duinen. Up 14/5/16 4.21 pm, middle 14/9/20 1.58 pm, under 15/6/7 4.50 pm.

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.

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.

Small experiment because of the stormy wind today. What happens if the camera is put on a tripod & you take 12 photographs of a strong moving trees and combine the 12 photos into one picture afterwards by photoshop? Diemen 4.50 pm.
