Green

The Netherlands, Oegstgeest – June 2020

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #99 is ‘old and new’.

This little pond is part of a little park in my village. When I was a toddler I used to feed the ducks and swans here. Sitting there years later I was impressed by the green and shapes of the trees under the Corona blue sky.

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.
