The Autumnal

The air is pregnant with a colorful vibe
Hibernating and emerging go side by side
The trees paint everything in bright colors
As they’re busy shedding their leavy skin
Meanwhile earth is filled with infinite veins
Invisible threads form a neural network
Leaves provide the power which it drains
On ground level many mushrooms thrive
Everything is recycled in the circle of life

Invasion

Last week suddenly these beetles came out of nowhere and utilized the grass. Have no clue what kind of beetle this is, but i could get a nice close-up shot as one was resting on the mint plant. Pretty cool looking beetle πŸ™‚

And then to think that i started with the photo underneath at the beginning.. i really love to play with photo’s in this way. For me , i work through intuition, using Photoshop and seeing the possibilities of a given photo. To describe the process a bit, i thought that adding a little contrast to the photo would make the double rainbow more visible. But it turned out quite hard to get something good out of this picture. So when i tried a few things, the rainbows got more colorful (and more like a painting). That’s when i saw the possibility of using the photo as a template which i then copied using MS paint (love that program lol). Halfway through πŸ™‚ After that, i copied the half, mirrored it and gave it a little bit extra (saturation, brightness, clarity and the likes). This all can be seen in the final result!

Visited a former garbage dump turned into an artificial hill together with my dad to do a few shots. It was fun to be up there watching the sun set.

City of Deventer

This is part of the skyline of the city of Deventer in the east of the Netherlands. I’ll be working here starting next wednesday. Lovely city and a nice skyline. I’ll surely photograph this skyline more often in the coming months πŸ™‚

Umbrellas

Yesterday my parents and i visited the city of Deventer. It’s a lovely old Hanze city with lots of small narrow streets with nice and peculiar shops. As there will be a festival next week which focuses on height. It’s called Deventer on Stilts and I’m pretty sure thats why these umbrellas are hanging all over the city. And with the rainy weather of yesterday the people ‘on ground level’ also used the umbrellas. Nice complementary work by these supporting actors πŸ˜‰
