Keukenhof is one of the largest flower gardens in the world. Approximately 7 million flower bulbs are planted annually in the park. Visiting the park was something Sanyika and Andi wanted to do while being in Holland. Photographing flowers isn’t something I normally do a lot. But it was quite a fun challenge to do. And pretty Dutch too.Continue reading
It was the last weekend of March and the weather started to look like spring. Which was perfect because we had some visitors from Hungary. We were really happy to welcome Sanyika and Andi at our place and show them a little bit of Holland. And it wasn’t just the two of them. Turned out that Superman also felt like he needed a little holiday and decided to come along. We thought the beach would be a good place to start. So off we went to Scheveningen!Continue reading
It had been a while since our last visit to the Efteling. So we thought taking Iván there would be a nice present for his birthday. Something we all would enjoy. And we most certainly did! It was a calm day and the weather was really nice. Couldn’t have planned it any better. And as promised, he could choose a couple of more presents while we were there. 🙂Continue reading
Back on the road with the Canon for a change. Time to try out the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens some more. One of the reasons for buying this lens was to have a little more reach than what I was having. A Zoo is one of those places where those extra mm’s come in handy. A perfect place to see what this lens can do.
Shot during our last visit to the Efteling. Sometimes you just have to wait and be patient. Simple as that!
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.
As a kid I loved Pat & Mat. Now, years later, my own son is watching the episodes over and over again (thanks to Netflix). And honestly I don’t mind it at all. I still enjoy watching Pat & Mat and seeing them solve their self-made problems. It’s hugely entertaining to me. We like them so much that we even went to the cinema and theater to see them. We are clearly in that phase now. 🙂
