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

A few images taken last week. Beautiful surroundings with all the autumn colors and the magnificient landscape of this rural area in the east of the Netherlands

Golden Autumn

Did a re-edit of this image, since i found the original one i posted a few years ago a little bit too saturated. This was taken 3 years ago.. i really should go and visit this specific spot tomorrow as it is always so beautiful with autumn colors.

20: Autumn Dream

Autumn Dream

Leaves on the ground   hardly any sound
The wind is soft and sway
What is still here will soon fade away
The mystical atmosphere of the forest
Trigger dreamlike images    fantasy of the mind
The magic lake mirror merges the sky and earth

As i drift away swimming in a sea of thoughts
The depth of being    unfathomable
Traveling between waking and sleeping
Life unfolds itself like an infinite dream
Where beings of the old play ancient games
Their dance of illusion distorts reality

Slowly awakening from the catnap
I realize i dozed away again
I can’t help but wonder how i didn’t see
That the whole time sleeping
The world was upside down

Last weekend went away with friends and we stayed at a boat which you can rent through Airbnb.. pretty cool! And this was the view, looking into the harbor of the town of Muiden (close to Amsterdam)

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.

This is the Turning Torso, Sweden’s tallest building reaching 190m. Impressive architecture and the building really stands out and can be seen from afar
