New Project

Leave a comment

 

 

hello ladies and gentlemen,

it’s quite incredible to see so many people coming to this blog again and again.  Could not have imagined that 4 years ago when i started blogging 🙂
But i also remember that there is this other hobby of mine, which i have not given too much attention lately: writing

As somebody said me a few days ago: just start with it, otherwise it won’t happen. And i know he’s right. So i like to give a bit of an outline of this new project for you guys but also for myself.

Long have i felt that words and images go perfectly together. Whether it’s a poem or a few lines of text, it really can create a connection with what meets the eye. So i want to engage in exactly this. It will be challenging for me, cause i know that i only write when i am truly inspired. But I’m sure that once i’ve started, everything will work out just fine.

I haven’t decided yet whether it will be a weekly or a daily thing, but i’m just going to start anyway 🙂

Please feel free to leave any comment, thoughts, critics, feedback. And please enjoy 🙂

Warm regards,
Pieter

ps. Day 1 is coming up!

Saturday Reflections

Well, almost Sunday but what the hack 🙂
These are actual reflections as seen in a building close-by. When you walk alongside this building, the perspective changes dramatically due to the workings of the various windows. No idea how they work, but it looks very nice imho

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

To me it looks like a bird´s beak

Euromast: Rotterdam’s Tallest

Euromast klein

The famous eyecatcher of Rotterdam, the Euromast, has an elevator which brings you up +200 meters in the air while spiraling along the central column. When i first moved upward i was a bit shocked to notice we would turn around the central column. But then i realized that as we were all buckled in our seatbelts, we needed to go round to see the entire cityscape. This is from another time, when we were strolling the city. Took this photo while passing through and found it today. Never edited it before, but i think in this cut out it its actually quite a nice architectural picture..

Wish you a nice weekend in advance!

The Star of Rotterdam

Rotterdam star

The infamous Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam has become the icon of the new skyline. Tried to give it a personal touch.
Used this image (https://pnco.wordpress.com/2014/05/16/de-zwaan/) to create this ‘star’. Really love symmetrical photography 🙂

Overexposure

Overexposed
While trying to capture two Greylag goose, i didn’t notice the camera settings were set to manual and were set for photographing in a shaded part of the forest. So the settings were a little too much to get a sharp photo of the geese, but it created this image. Transformed it to black and white since there was hardly any color left lol
