Dark

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – May 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #100 is ‘the long and winding road’.

First congratulations and big thanks to Tina, Ann- Christine, Amy and Patti, for starting this weekly challenge after the WordPress WPC stopped.

The present state of the world and us living on it is far from ideal. By acknowledging this and embrace it, we can start to take steps. Racism, global warming, privilege, hunger, economic greed, poverty all have to do with our behaviour as people. So we can change it. That is a long and winding road. And it will never be perfect or ideal.

When all you can see is dark, the heart sinks. But there is always light, powerful light. One little shimmer can spark change and lighten up our lives. Embrace sparks, encourage them to glow and burn.

Sunset over the field

The Netherlands, Katwijk – May 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #97 is ‘pastimes’. 
During the intelligent lockdown we can make short bicycle trips to have some excercise and see the beauty of nature bursting out in Spring. Yesterday I posted two motor powered parachutes against the sky. This is taken from the same viewpoint.

Sunset Canal

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – April 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #95 is ‘All Wet’.

You might think seeing this photo ‘this is not all wet, is it?’ And indeed it is not. Some say God created the world and The Dutch created The Netherlands.The first is a question of belief and the latter is a question of opinion. The fact is that a big part of the low lands (Netherlands) are under sea level. This small canal is part of the waterworks that manages to keep Dutch feet dry.  If we could not manage water this way you would be looking at the sea. So it is not all wet, it is managed wet and we prefer it that way.

Sunset Orange

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – April 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #95 is ‘All Wet’.

You might think seeing this photo ‘this is not all wet, is it?’ And indeed it is not. Some say God created the world and The Dutch created The Netherlands.The first is a question of belief and the latter is a question of opinion. The fact is that a big part of the low lands (Netherlands) are under sea level. This pond collects water, if there is too much rain the excess water is taking down to the sea. This pond is one of the waterworks that manages to keep Dutch feet dry.  If we could not manage water this way you would be looking at the sea. So it is not all wet, it is managed wet and we prefer it that way.
