Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Pretty Woman


Pretty woman, walking down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman
I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
No one could look as good as you

Panoramic Childrens Farm



Please see full size.

This is an overview of the said childrens farm from where i’ve been making lots of pictures. As the rain subsided i went outside and made 5 (horizontal shots) times 3 (for hdr) times 2 (bottom and top layer) = 30 photo’s to create this panorama. Lot of editing work, but the result really made it worthwhile πŸ™‚

My first exposition!



Since last week 20 of my images are in an exposition at the office i work in Deventer. Very cool to see all these images come alive. As i could do the selection, i choose a variety of work. Some edited with photoshop and others from the time i first started to really do photographing. Wanted to show you ladies and gentlemen the photographs. The above image is the actual setting. Below is a gallery with all 20 photographs. You may recognize some of them, as i’ve posted them before.

Let me know what you think of the collection πŸ™‚


The Rooster



I was asked by one of the workers at the children’s farm to make a few pictures of the animals for their website. This is one which i’m very happy with, it’s a rooster with a beautiful red face. So in the coming days i’ll post a few more shots, made quite a few close-ups yesterday πŸ™‚

Identity Crisis


This female peacock grew up with chickens on the children’s farm. She really has to learn that she’s not one of them. Her male companion is more of a lonely wolf, but she stays with the pack of chickens. Sometimes i wonder if she even knows. And then, the question is whether it really matters πŸ™‚
Anyway, it inspired me to write a few haiku’s on the matter

I'm no peacock

Haiku #1

In my ears softly
she said: I’m not a peacock
I’m just pretending

Haiku #2

A bird’s love story;
Being a peacock made her
Chicken out on me

Haiku #3

Like the ugly duck
This peacock has to learn that
She’s not a chicken



You Chicken?!


Orange Beauty_klein

Today i was at the children’s farm, when my mother came and visit me. We strolled around a bit and we came across these beautiful chickens. With a nice orange color on her feathers, this one really stood out. Out of some 25 photo’s, i was very happy to find this one which really looks great.

ps. Thanks for all the likes and comments! Really helps me to get through this phase of unemployment and the dark days πŸ™‚ We’ll get there, the flowers are growing again πŸ™‚
