Merry Christmas

England, Southwell – December 2016

Christmas is about light, shining in the dark, a promise of possibilities, of new events. Small sparks that may turn into the brightness of a beautiful sun, offering warmth, comfort, trust, security, well being and new life.
I wish you lots of light in the coming year, to see and observe the difference between the light and the darkness, to embrace and accept them both as parts of our life.

This year’s last Lens-Artists Challenge (#128) is ‘And here comes the holiday season………..’

COVID Christmas

The Netherlands, Den Haag – December 2020

The weekly theme for lens artists weekly photo challenge (in short LAPC) #127 is ‘precious moments’.

A memory can be triggered by here and now. Last weekend I visited Den Haag physically for the first time after the lock down started in March. It was exciting and at the same time sad to see the city and the familiar landmarks. ‘Normally’ at this time of year, the center is crowded with people doing Christmas shopping, but now it is (depending on the hour of the day) more or less quiet. At times it is however too busy. The apparent human need to cluster closely together (in shops, or at home) is probably a reason why we see a rise in cases again. Tonight a more strict lock down will be announced. To curb the second wave. Department stores like the 150 year old Bijenkorf and other ‘unnecessary’ shops will close again. That hurts them enormously. But luckily there is light at the end of this tunnel. I hope the light of Christmas will soon turn into a bright sun that opens up our now small worlds and gives us the space and opportunities to be more human again. Till then: courage.
