I added comments on every set of images to offer some background (click on the square icon to fill any screen type). Any observation from your side: more than welcome ☺. Enjoy!
Three activities that have played an important part in my life have come together in this website: photography, web design and my love for English (I'm not trying to be perky here, I chose to translate my website into English as most of my visitors are non-Dutch speaking).
Photography is what makes me tick. I noticed that my work is getting more and more abstract. Inspired by having visited more museums in the past five years than in my entire life? Most certainly. Changed because I am getting older? Definitely.
With techniques such as ICM and blur aided by post-processing I try to make images that are different and grab the attention. If they don't, I am truly sorry. But there's also plenty of tradional photography. Don't worry.
Sit back, relax and scroll through my site. 24 mm, 2.0 sec @ f/22.
The light was eerie early this morning. Possibly some sand from the Sahara.

Some Cosmea from the garden saved in a tiny vase and a painting by Salvadar Dalí that I made an ME (multiple exposure) of. Both pictures were printed on a paper texture.

Just can't get enough of city trips, this time to Belgium, visiting museums, churches, exhibitions, the Concertgebouw and above all enjoying the food.

And once more an outing to one of the Dutch museums - this time Museum Arnhem that sports a collection of works around environmental matters - and a local bookshop.

The first result of the Slow Shutter App on my phone. A bunch of sunflowers my sister-in-law gave us was used as the basis.

Saskia Boelsums' work in the form of a selection of outstanding landscapes was exhibited at Museum Jan, apart from ceramics and glass objects. Reason enough to visit this unexpectedly large museum with shops and restaurants around the corner. Seven minutes from there, right in the middle of Amstelveen, we also visited Cobra Museum featuring Corneille's and Moroccan work including a humorously constructed mobile.

I just felt like going to this small city nearby for a few hours, and shot whatever I came across. The 'Zinder', which is a spectacular building near the centre, some gulls and the unavoidable scooter.

For a walk at the beach it was a bit of a grey day, quite unlike the sunny and warm summer we've had so far.

Quite close to where the Royal family has a summer residence, a small museum 'Belvedère' was built right across the canal that leads to it. I shot this having lunch in the restaurant (the museum's 😉).

Every time we're in the east of the Netherlands, we'll drop by at Museum More (Museum for Modern Realism) to take a peek at this private collection. All 24 mm, between 1.0 - 2.0 sec @ f/8 - f/22. At the beginning and the end of the slideshow, you'll find composed images of Kasteel Ruurlo, trying my hand at the Pep Ventosa technique.

The wind carried motocross noises to my house, so I decided to take a peek. What I saw threw me back to the seventies. Images between 1/30 and 0.5 sec @ ISO 200.

Sweet Peace, where dost thou dwell? I humbly crave,
Let me once know.
I sought thee in a secret cave,
And ask'd, if Peace were there,
A hollow wind did seem to answer,
No: Go seek elsewhere …
George Herbert (1593-1633), 'Peace'.
