the beautiful clouds called for a ride

I am terribly annoyed by all the commotion surrounding the US presidential elections, corona measures, saving the neoliberal economy, exploiting the environment and many other things that are all important.

a short ride to see if I still feel my muscles

Today I was briefly in my Quest 552 to let my leg muscles “talk” … They told me that I cycle far too little. I replied that I am now 64 years old and no longer have to win races … I want to relax a bit more while cycling. They understood. While taking photos,Continue reading “a short ride to see if I still feel my muscles”

Marjan on the cover of Rolling Stone

Okay, not really on Rolling Stone, but on the front page of Op de Hoogte. The magazine of IVN Walcheren. One of her photos was chosen by the editors for the magazine. The other photos can be seen from 1 June at the exhibition in the Schellach cheese farm.

driving through Dutch rainy skies

These are typical rain showers, especially in the province of Zeeland. You can see them arriving far in advance. As a photographer, I strongly feel a need to capture them with the compact camera that I always have with me.

de Kaloot

De Kaloot is a beach next to the power plant in Borsele. A clean-up campaign had been organized, to which Marjan wanted to participate.   A simple Facebook call was enough to gather enough people.     I tried to make a photo report.     Especially the very small plastic particles are disastrous forContinue reading “de Kaloot”
