One of the two LED daytime running lights had broken. Since the lid was loose for maintenance, I immediately renewed both. Yesterday I asked Velomobiel.nl which lights they use for this. They are these that they order in large amounts at Conrad, they are most likely not for sale at a local electrical store.Today IContinue reading “LED daytime running lights”
The 552 is open again !
We went travelling for a few days with our old camper. After months of unemployment in our small family bubble in a world with COVID-19 and many sterile job applications, the need to see a different environment was great. The general advice is to avoid crowds and therefore Normandy seemed a suitable target. . TheContinue reading “Normandy, France.”
For the first time, I see how it should be done. I have been annoyed for years by the way people deal with the removal of obsolete buildings. But now something is being broken down the way it should. This building has been used by Pouwelse Tuinen for years. Now it has to make way for the construction of new houses. Because years ago it was decided to buildContinue reading “as it should”
They are well cared for by their parents, these young turtledoves in our backyard. It’s fun to take pictures of them.
Last night I suddenly woke up to realize that I was making a classic fallacy in my so-called selfie through the bathroom mirror. It is not a selfie, but a registration of the image as I am used to seeing myself. For the rest of the world, it is a mirror image … To make a selfie of that mirror image, I have to mirror theContinue reading “classic fallacy”
In my thoughts, I was briefly back in the 1970s when I sailed as an engineer at NSM “Oceaan”. Just a few videos I found on the worldwideweb to get an idea …
I took these photos in January 2020. Torn apart “skeletons” of Thermphos. They were located on the square, which was temporarily used as a kind of cemetery. All the RA-contaminated “meat” was taken off and sprayed off. Not long after, the entire building was toppled with explosives … I’ve taken tons of photos and becauseContinue reading “torn apart skeletons of Thermphos.”
Today I cycled a bit through the industrial area of Vlissingen. A lot has changed. And before new installations can be built, the old one must first be safely demolished. EPZ’s coal-fired power plant has been out of operation for years and its chimney is now being demolished. Of all Thermphos buildings, only the skeletonContinue reading “Cycling in Vlissingen-Oost”
Dragonfly was once the name of a band in Vlissingen. I thought of Rudy de Queljoe when I photographed this dragonfly in our garden. Canon 100-400 mm handheld funny, that seeing a small insect takes you so far back in your thoughts.
I am clearly unable to cope with the new normal that the rising carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is bringing about. A few days 35 degrees Celsius in Vlissingen … and now I suffer from migraines. Almost all I did was sit in the shade and take pictures from there … and reading books …Continue reading “New Normal ?”
always beautiful, just walking the dog on the island of Neeltje Jans with this kind of music in your head …
Yesterday the temperature reached 36 degrees Celsius in our garden. I have done almost nothing but observe what happened around me …
… but you’re only able to see the order after many years. Only then you can notice what you considered chaos, repeats itself every year with exactly the same colors and the same pattern. Unfortunately, it also takes many years for people to see and feel the slow change to a different climate.
