The Dutch Pyramid

The pyramid of Austerlitz was build by one of the generals in the army of Napoleon, but was named after a Czech village. The general who build the pyramid had hopes it would be named after him, but history proved him wrong..

Travel – a Monochromed Madness Theme

This week is the first of the month, so it means that at Leanne Cole there is a themed Monochrome Madness. This month’s theme is Travel. For the image i choose, i didn’t choose to go through all my travel photos to pick the one i liked the most. Instead, i intuitively choose this picture i took a little over a week ago at the coast in Zeeland (a province in the south-west of the Netherlands, close to the sea as it’s name translates to Sea land). It’s one of my former roommates walking through the wet sand on our stroll on the beach. I personally like the simplicity of it. Not difficult to see what the image is about and yet the reflection creates a subtle extra dimension. Walking is such a wonderful way to travel. Just go where the legs will bring you

And as an extra i’d like to show the original colored version too, think the sand looks great in colors 🙂

This is my entry for the weekly Monochrome Madness challenge as hosted by Leanne Cole (http://leanecole.com.au/) – a statue with lots of reflections in the mirrors

Saw this today as we drove past this with the car. Really looks cool when traveling 30 mph, but its also fun to walk past it and see oneself being reflected multiple times. I’m sure i’ll post some more shots soon

Soon the new theme of Monochrome Madness will go live on the site of Leanne Cole (http://leannecole.com.au/). The theme is City and as i was searching for an image i looked up the collection of photos taken in Croatia and came up with this one. The city of Split as seen from this pathway which leads to the botanical gardens of Split.
