My photoblog celebrates it’s first birthday! I started this blog after reading a post by Scott Bourne. It was called ‘Seven Ideas For Photographers’ New Year’s Resolutions‘. All these ideas were aimed at making the reader a better photographer by next year. That appealed to me and therefore I decided to follow his advice to start a photo blog. It “will force you to make more photos because if you don’t, you’ll run out of blog ideas”. I liked this idea and made it happen.
So this blog is now in existence for one year! It did help me to focus my photography: I made a commitment to publish twice a week at least one blogpost. And I found that it stimulated me to make more photographs. During this year it evolved not in a way that it was a burden, but in a way that I felt challenged and comfortable with.
And now I like to publish ten of my best photographs made in 2013. I hope you enjoy viewing these images, as much as I enjoyed creating these images.
1. Studenthousing in Utrecht.
This is a colorfull studenthousing called Casa Confetti. My son moved this summer to a new appartment in this building. I asked hem to sit in the window of his appartment. I found out that it was rather challenging for my lens to get straight lines (the 12-24 f/4 Nikon lens)
6. Old books on a bookmarket
I like old books, and the biggest secondhand bookmarket of Europe was in a town nearby. These items for sale show the beauty of books, alsmost independent of their content.
7. Biking on the heatherfields.
The heatherfields in august turn purple; the weather is still nice and this makes biking through nature fun.
10. Autumns leave of a grape
I always like the colors and structures of leaves in the autumns although I’ve seen it many times in my life.
