Dissolution

Slowly but surely this railway track is taken over by nature.. great reminder of the impermanence of things we tend to see as permanent. If only we would be aware of all the time and effort it costs us to maintain our human world, we would be much more at ease to let things be and to let things go..

My entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness as hosted by Leanne Cole. An image of the Maas river and a small part of the Rotterdam harbor industry, which is massive.

Yesterday was a very foggy day, perfect circumstances for a day out with the camera. Went to a lake where i know there are some dead trees standing in the water. This is the first of the serie, this week i’ll show some more (minimalist) shots of the lake. Really had great fun in the cold with this weather.

Portrait try-outs

Tried to create double exposures with a self portrait i took on Sunday. Fun to do, still looking for the perfect fine tuning. But it was nice to see how easy it actually is.. and the final image is a B&W portrait from the same session which i’m quite pleased with

The Dutch Pyramid

The pyramid of Austerlitz was build by one of the generals in the army of Napoleon, but was named after a Czech village. The general who build the pyramid had hopes it would be named after him, but history proved him wrong..

Going Forth

For now a small break from the writing with images as i notice i like to share some photos too. This one was taken back in 2013. It was very impressive to stand in front of the Forth railway bridge near Edinburgh back in 2013. Such an amazing sight. And then to think it’s over a century old. I tried to create a bit of a mood in this picture. Really worked with the light and the contrast here, to emphasize the bridge and the clouds.
