wimharwig.com is about the life of an old married man who was born in 314 ppm 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.

old family documents

It’s December, … that time of year when the days are short and the evenings are long and dark … when there’s time to go through all kinds of old stuff to decide whether its fit to throw away or to keep … as being a member of the Harwig family I can’t throw awayContinue reading “old family documents”

mice in the garden …

They are getting too many … and there is not enough room for them to spread naturally in our neighbourhood … in the middle of a residential area you can call this a natural pest … So unfortunately I have the help of a pest controller requested, via the municipality of Vlissingen. Before the pestContinue reading “mice in the garden …”
