Skating Fever | Frozen Amsterdam I Winter 2012
This year the snow and ice came late but made up for this by transforming the city into a winter wonderland.
Photo a Day Project
I have been busy with this project for some years now and since I always have a camera with me it seems to be firmly established into my routine. 2012 | 366

Queen's Day | Amsterdam | 2010
April 30th is the Dutch National Holiday and the official birthday of their Queen.
The canal belt of Amsterdam is teeming with people wearing orange, selling all manner of stuff on the freemarket or partying in the street and on the canals. They start the night before and since this year fell on a Friday they partied later than usual.

Travel | Paris
I recently spent a few days in Paris wandering around with my camera. I have travelled through Paris often, but this is the first time in a long time that I surfaced from the metro and explored the city.
I have hundreds of photos to edit but my favourites were these night shots: Paris Nocturne
I am not a morning person, but getting up early is so much easier when the light is this beautiful: Paris Morning
Here are a few shots taken on my iPhone

Photowalk | Doel
Street Photography road trip to ghost town Doel, Belgium
It was somewhat unusual to do street photography in a ghost town.
The village of Doel is scheduled for demolition. It will make way for an expansion of the Port of Antwerp. Amongst the boxy newer houses are beautiful ancient houses which manage to hold their beauty in the face of dereliction.
I am a huge fan of the quirky Lensbaby system and I have a number of adapters and optics that fit into the Lensbaby Composer. I just love the selective focus and extreme distortion effects that they produce.
These are my favourite shots
so far and there are more shots here
