Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

The home of Nikola Tesla


The great inventor Nikola Tesla was born in present day Croatia in the town of Smiljan. His father was a priest for the local church. This church was rebuild and the family house stands there too. In front of both buildings is a statue of the inventor. Really a wonderful museum to visit, with lots of nice quotes by Tesla and some of the early inventions. The documentary on Nikola Tesla was both fascinating and alienating, as it showed some of the strange visionary flashes of light from which Nikola Tesla was suffering. He eventually learned to live with them. If you happen to be close by, please consider visiting this small museum. So many of his inventions have found their way into our homes. Why not visit the home where it all started? πŸ™‚

Tried a bit more extreme edit of this picture. Btw, thats me with the camera in the picture πŸ˜‰ My father took this picture and i really like it. But to make something special out of it i enhanced it according to what i think suits this picture. Very personal, but still i hope you like it!

Wish you a wonderful weekend !


Walking in the forest


Close to Glen Coe in Scotland my father and i did a 2 hour hike. Great place to walk, with beautiful pine forests and every now and then a great view over the Glen. These are two images of the walk which i gave a personal touch

It’s been a year!


Wow.. time flies.. tomorrow it will be a year since i’ve started this blog. I’ve learned a lot about photography and discovered there are a lot of great (photo)blogs online. The quality is absolutely astounishing! In the first few months i also posted poetry and proza, but after a while decided to split these from the photographs. If you are interested in that, take a look at http://pieternavis.wordpress.com

I wasn’t sure what to do with the 1 year celebration and tomorrow i’ll be gone for a week anyway. So i can’t be online when it’s time to celebrate πŸ˜‰ Funny thing is that i’ve started the blog on the same day the two cats (Pooh and Witte Vlek) were born! So in a way it’s an ode to them too πŸ™‚

One of the funniest things from this year of blogging is that my dad made the most popular photograph:
Castle in the water

So i guess its up to me to keep on practising my skills so that i can top this achievement πŸ™‚
