The streets of Haarlem by night

The year 2015 began good!
On Sunday the 4th of January I went out on a photographic trip with some friends to the city of Haarlem.

It was a very sunny Sunday, when evening fell over the city, a bright full moon lighted up the sky quite a lot (as you can see in some photographs)!

Here’s a photographic impression of the streets of Haarlem by night. I intend to go back there in the near future, to get my hands on more Streets.

Enjoy!

A snowy day in the park

Last weekend I went to the southern part of The Netherlands; I heard some snow fell there!
This happens not too much around here, so I took my chance to shoot some “snowy winter pics”.
The weather was really nic, sunny and not too cold.
The location: Park Meerland, Eindhoven. A city park recently realized, it already won a price for it’s architectural design back in 2011. More info (Dutch) about the park: http://www.parkmeerland.nl/

It’s something completely different from what I normally fix on my photo sensor, but nevertheless I hope you like it. (best viewed in fullscreen!)

The streets of Antwerp by night

Why I didn’t come up with the idea before, I don’t know.
But making a series of photographs of the streets of Antwerp by night looked like a cool idea to me!

Here are the first four photographs I want to share; this will be an ongoing project, so expect more material in the future.

Halloween

Crazy brides and vampires.. That’s what you can expect to be wandering around with Halloween.

As a matter of fact I happened to capture a couple of them with my camera. I hope you enjoy the result!

Waiting for trains

Since I travel back and forth from now and then, I happen to be on train stations quite a lot.
For the train(station) lovers in The Netherlands the new train station of Rotterdam is a must-have-seen.

I had to wait for a train to catch for almost half an hour, so I decided to wander around (I happened to have a camera with me 😉 ). Looking for symmetry my eye caught some people waiting for the next train to catch, just like me.
So I pinpointed the exact right location, which comes down to a couple of centimeters to the left, a couple to the right, hold the camera *really* leveled as possible from hand, and.. click.
The result is there (click photograph for bigger version)! That was half an hour well spent!

Doel

A photographic trip to a ghost village

Doel, an almost abandoned village near Antwerp, Belgium. It is probably more known because of the fact that it is situated just next to a nuclear power plant.
It is threatened by complete demolition due to the future expansion of the harbour of Antwerp.

I was really curious and eager to visit this village, and I tried to give an impression of the situation and atmosphere with the photographs I made there.
