Sepia over Den Haag

The Netherlands, Den Haag – April 2022

The Lens-artists challenge #197 is ‘rule of thirds’. The rule of thirds is a rule of thumb how to compose images. But a photo that creates a journey of the eye can also be made by using lines and colors. This is the view from Den Haag Central Station to Scheveningen.

Systematic

The Netherlands, Scheveningen – July 2004

This week lens artists photo challenge is ‘that special place’. The beach is a place to relax, let go and create space and a fresh head. And you can see more than water and beach at times. This one is also an entry for Paula’s pick a word competition on ‘Lost in Translatation’. It looks like the surfers are in chaos, but actually they use the water and wind systematic.

Wind Breaker

The Netherlands, Scheveningen – July 2004

This week lens artists photo challenge is ‘that special place’. The beach is a place to relax, let go and create space and a fresh head. And you can see more than water and beach at times. This one is also an entry for Paula’s pick a word competition on ‘Lost in Translatation’. Not completely straight, but straight.

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.
