A funfair, right in the heart of the city. Last week we were in Breda to visit the carnival. I expected this post to be in color. After all there’s plenty of color to be seen at a funfair. Bright lights and neon signs everywhere. But when processing the images I actually preferred them in black and white (with one exception as you’ll see). That just seemed to work better in this case. Removing the distraction of all the colors and emphasizing the persons instead. Or maybe it’s just the look and feel of street photography that I love so much. Either way, here are some photos of last weekend.
Two Boys. Two Sons. Two Photos.
For over 20 years my father used to work as a prison guard in the ‘Koepelgevangenis’ (Dome prison) Breda. The prison was built in the period between 1882 – 1886. It now no longer serves as a prison anymore but instead offers space for several activities to take place. One of those activities is a guided tour. My father now being of the tour guides. So I decided to join him on one of his tours. A perfect way to visit this iconic landmark of Breda and spending some time with my father.
Last Tuesday Iván turned 4. 4! Can you believe it?! The weekend before we celebrated his and my nephew’s birthday together (who has his birthday one day before Iván). On Tuesday we had another little small party at home. Four candles already. I just can’t wrap my head around it.
First post of 2018. But probably it should have been the last of 2017. Let’s hope 2018 will be more manageable with photo editing and blogging. When visiting Balázs and Csilla in Germany last November there was an small exposition about Schumacher. The entrance was free and the drive not too long. After having a rainy day (full with drunk people due to the start of Carnaval) in Cologne the day before we gave it another chance and headed for Marburg.
Just a simple reminder to use the camera at home more often.
Our little boy is growing up fast! It might sound like a cliche, because it is. 🙂
