Behind The Trees

France, Offekerque – August 2019

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #64 is ‘out in the country’.

The north of France near the Channel is normally flat and quite open. But at some points you can find tree lines along roads.

Magical Realism

The Netherlands, Den Haag – September 2019

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #63 is ‘magical’.
Sometimes the light and a bit of a filter can tweak reality in such a way that it does not look like a real world.

A Magical Place

The Netherlands, Amsterdam – September 2019

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #63 is ‘magical’.
The Johan Cruijff Arena, home of Ajax Amsterdam, just before the start of a home match.
One of the fixed events at a home match is a young player juggling a ball in the middle of the pitch.
This boy of 8 managed to do that 2736 times. Then he had to stop because the match started.
Apart from the magic of that boy, this is the place where Ajax creates its magic.

Walk A Line! Focus!

Belgium, Gistel-Zevekote – August 2019

This is the first time I post an entry in a theme of Frank’s Jansen Dutch goes the photo: Focus! 
The photo is from a trip to Calais France, and shows the flat lands of Flanders on the coast of the Channel.
Each time of year these fields look different; in Summer they look bright and light, in Winter they can be grey and dark.
We make this trip a few times each year, and each time it reminds me of Jacques Brel’s chanson ‘mijn vlakke land’.
(The link to my 2014 post is not working any more, I cleaned up my blog a few months ago.
You can find the English and Dutch lyrics here.
