I challenge you

Posted 2 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Some people got really inspired by my posting earlier last week about a seemingly empty photo had lots of cars in it. Estimations between 93 and 94, I haven't counted them myself because it didn't seem a very useful thing to do.. But I'm bck with a challenge: how many bikes are there in this photo? At first sight probably zero but do take the time to download the full-size version and perform some serious counting! I'm curious to hear the results!

Thousands of people came to The Hague this afternoon to express their dismay with Dutch immigration policy. National government elections will be held later this month. More photos.

Un chasseur sachant chasser..

Posted 6 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Spent a nice day in France + driving there and back. Living on the European continent is a good thing, you can travel in any direction for a few hours and be somewhere completely different.

This photo shows two deer, just shot by French farmers on their Sunday morning hunting tour.

Typical, A-Typical and Stereo-Typical

Posted 7 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Whatever we in Dutch call typical (=different, strange, noticeable, striking) is referred to in French as A-typical (=not complying with prevailing standards). I was taught one day that as a photographer, one needs to look for a-typical things and go beyond the obvious. Well, I somehow feel attracted to the obvious and do the opposite: take photos of things that confirm my stereotypical view on things. So here's two typical photos from the Haute-Saone department in France.

Haute tension

Hot or Not

Posted 11 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Whilst this 11/11 is extremely warm in Holland, that same day in 1911 (Kansas, USA 11/11/'11) also started at record high temperatures (+ 24°C). But all is cold that ends cold, the day ended in temperatures way below 0: -11.7°C.

Relay photo project take-off!

Posted 13 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Another project has taken off. No real title as yet, but it's going to be a relay (NL/FR: estafette) kind of project, so I don't know who I'll be taing photos of. Subject: people's everyday life and whatever keeps them busy. Semi-portraits, all black and white. For the first photo, I passed the stick to my friend Bas, who will pass it on to the next one and so on and so on. As you may be able to see, Bas is working on his university dissertation and he's being helped by a former classmate.

Taking photos of Buddies

Posted 16 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

I've been taking portrait photos for the Buddy Network Foundation. They will replace the ones currently displayed on their website. I also took a group portrait and it's always interesting to see the shuffling of the group taking place, which is what's happening in the photo below:

Sth missin'

Posted 20 November 2006 - De Koog (NL):

Reporting live from the island of Texel: weather sucks, it’s rainy, windy, coldy. Some sheep farms seem to be cut in half. If it was only one, it could have been a random coincidence, but there are many, all facing the same way. Why? In this way, the sheep can stay outside during bad weather. They can seek shelter from rain and wind in the 'shadow' of the farm.

Polder road

Posted 21 November 2006 - Texel (NL):

I've been reading a book by Hans Aarsman: "Hollandse Taferelen" / "Dutch scenes", about him travelling around Holland in a minivan taking photos here and there. The book contains many truths about photography and especially (1) how a photographer should try not to influence its subject, (2) how everything is worth taking photos of, no matter how insignificant or obvious, (3) how everything is based on perception. Many nice photos containing crossroads, road signs and light posts.

Along the IJsselmeer

Posted 22 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Another typical Dutch polder photo, this time along the shore of the former Zuiderzee, called IJsselmeer since it was 'tamed' by the Afsluitdijk in 1932.

New photos on the PhotoLogiX event page: the arrival of Sinterklaas in Lemmer.

Posted 24 November 2006 - London (UK):

I'm strolling around the streets of London with no specific purpose, just relaxing a bit and looking around. I didn't bring my laptop and not much other equipment either so I prepared some photos of last weekend for this post. London photos can be expected on Monday.

One more photo from Texel before proceeding to other stuff, this is the light house on the north side of the island. Before we had Euros, the 250 guilders banknote displayed all working lighthouses along the Dutch coast, together with their emitted signals. Wonderful piece of graphic design, just like all other former Dutch banknotes:

- Front side of the banknote (from
- Backside of the 250 guilder banknote (also from
- All Dutch banknotes
- Sunflower, special recommendation for the 50 guilder note.

Erasmus Bridge again

Posted 26 Listopad 2006 - The Hague (NL):

I safely returned back home to comment on this below photo I sold earlier - yes that fortunately does happen more and more often. This was a request by a friend from tennis, who spent her first datum with her now-husband on this quay. Rotterdam Wilhelminakade, the bridge in the background is the Erasmus bridge.

Socio-Spatial planning

Posted 27 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

I'm always interested in how people select their seats at social venues: public transportation, birthdays, performances. How aware are people of their seat selection process?

In the photo below, why do only four people take a seat in the first row while I would presume those are the best seats? Would they sit there if they had to pay more to sit there? Are they afraid of having only people behind them and none in front? Do they want to make sure they can hear their mobile phones when they're ringing?

The orchestra playing is the Bataafs Symfonieorkest.

Discover Snowcover

Posted 28 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Snowcover on stage! Former housemate Jean has made some decent progress with his solo activities as a musician. For the first time since October 2005, he climbed the stage and impressed the audience with some new sensitive and slightly-more-commercial-than-before tracks.

Next on the agenda is the appearance of Footsweep on local radio, this coming Friday at 20 o'clock via Radio West.

Tate Modern

Posted 29 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

Sorry for lagging behind a little.. I haven't posted any photos from last week's London trip yet. I didn't even take that many, but here's at least one.. So what have I been doing? Nothing much, walking around, looking at things, reading another book about creativity, meeting up with Sipke, a fellow photographer from The Netherlands who lives in London, chatting about photography and having a beer. All quite relaxing actually..

This photo was shot from one of the balconies of Tate Modern, a must-visit in London even for museumhaters like myself..

Not too empty in the end

Posted 30 November 2006 - The Hague (NL):

The best moments in photography are the moment you catch the image and instantly know you've got a nice shot - and the moment you have a large size print in front of you. When you can see each and every detail and appreciate the different structures in a photo. In my case, that's preferrably: the contents of the photo rather than the graphical impression at the first glance. The latter has to be inviting while the details finish of the work.

Below is another one of those photos where at first site, everything seems empty. You really need that big paper print to see that there are at least 20 people in this photo, taken in Hyde Park.
