Dutch police officers waiting just for the start of the prologue of the Giro d’Italia back in June of this year. Every rider had a police officer on bike as an escort.
But before the start, it was time to relax and have a chat with each other
Normally the English language helps me to express what i’m trying to portrait. This time though there is no good translation for what is evident in Dutch. The word Anthology is translated in Dutch as ‘Flower Read’. In Dutch the title is obvious, but there was no proper translation for this word.
The idea popped up yesterday and today while sitting in the sunshine, tried a few shots with this as a result.
ps. the book is called Ecology without Nature. This book is written by Timothy Morton, a Harvard professor and a very generous man.
First of all, what a cool name for this butterfly! In Dutch this species is called Atalanta – after the Latin name, but Red Admiral sounds very cool 🙂 Today I’ve got two photographs, one with the wings closed and one with the wings opened. Luckily the butterfly was buzzing around my head and landing close by so i could should both. My personal preference goes out to the wings closed, since this side of the wings is so incredibly patterned and colored. And yet, with it’s wings fully open, it’s also a beauty.. why would i make a choice anyway lol..
