Dreamlands

Dreamlands

Being on the other side as the magic slowly comes alive
Dream of lands full of mystical places long forgotten
Fairy tales escape from the minds of their creators
And find their dwelling in this land of in between
Playing on the land, in the water and flying through the sky
Nature performs her dance right in front of my very eyes

This is my entry for the weekly Monochrome Madness challenge as hosted by Leanne Cole (http://leanecole.com.au/) – a statue with lots of reflections in the mirrors

Saw this today as we drove past this with the car. Really looks cool when traveling 30 mph, but its also fun to walk past it and see oneself being reflected multiple times. I’m sure i’ll post some more shots soon

Beauty and Sadness

5 Comments

Here are a few images of animals i photographed at 2 different zoo’s. The Wolf and the Monkey are photographed at Artis Zoo, the Snow Owl and the Deer are shot at Anholter Schweiz. The beauty and tragedy of zoo’s.. its a marvel to be able to see so many beautiful animals on one day and its sad to see the conditions they’re in. Guess that’s why i choose black & white for this serie.. And there is a documentary on Dutch television i’m going to watch, which deals with this subject (it’s called ‘the end of the zoo’).. in the end we should question whether educational (or is it economical) value comes before animal freedom? Lots to be said about, but i think i can end with an anecdote: when i was young(er) i wanted to become director of a zoo.. that is, until i realized the conditions the animals live in. And now no longer living that dream😉

Yesterday went to Artis zoo with a few friends from back in University days.. was great fun and took a lot of pictures. So i’ll select a few of them and post them here at the blog. First stop, a Grey Heron. Tried to give it a bit of a Japanese style

In the Bay of Islands in New Zealand, back in 2008 during a boat trip. Today got two versions, one in black & white and one in color.

Wish you all a wonderful peaceful weekend!
