an old-fashioned selfie through the bathroom mirror

wimharwig.com

wimharwig.com is about the life of an old married man who was born in 314 ppm CO2 and is still trying to carry out his hobbies, with the adage “I am too old for keeping up appearances”.
As an amateur photographer and blogger, I try to do my best to record the adventures with my sweet wife, loyal dog, cosy camper, wooden Finnhouse and creaking recumbents with my old Canon 5D photo camera. And let’s call it factual photography because I don’t interfere with what happens … I only use my point of view and camera settings.

It is mainly for myself, my family and friends (mostly abroad), but anyone who is interested in me or my blog is welcome.

photogenic grandchild

Grandma’s hand helps to squeeze half the orange on the juicer, while she explains how healthy orange juice is especially for little girls.

De Uitlaat

In the industrial area, east of Vlissingen is the site of motorsports association “De Uitlaat”. During a short bike ride, I happened to see a couple of guys racing actively. The light was beautiful, the track was dry and there was little wind, so I couldn’t resist the temptation to get out of my velomobile and take some pictures.

Our camper is for sale

UPDATE ! : Our camper is sold ! Pancho Veenstra is the new owner. Later (too late unfortunately) I found out Pancho is just a shadowy car dealer posing as an enthusiastic hobbyist. I thought I was selling the camper to someone with little capital who wanted to travel through Europe and refurbish an older…

busy to get used to getting older

Life in these turbulent times with climate change, political chaos (the Netherlands), the growing wealth gap, COVID-19 deniers, digital money, energy transition, resurgent populism, reduced reading skills among young people, neoliberal economy, etc. did not get any easier for guys like me who grew up in the turbulent sixties and seventies. So even though I no longer…

turtledoves in our garden

Mother turtle-dove decided to make her nest in a wicker basket that is always on our porch. She laid two eggs which both hatched without any problems. So we could enjoy 2 turtle-doves growing up every day and have also gained a lot of respect for the turtle-dove that took excellent care of their young and defended with great courage against crows…
