Grey beach Hipstas

by | December 2020

We love the beach along the North Sea. This is where we grew up, making it our definition of a beach. Even so the beach is never the same. Rain or shine, storm or fog, the colors and shapes of the sea, the sand and the clouds change all the time. Over the years I have made thousands of Hipstas of the beach of Bergen aan Zee.

For this post I made a somewhat grey selection to reflect the crazy times we live in. Corona has been with us for nearly a year. We used to go walking on the beach every Sunday morning with our dog Duvel and then have breakfast at one of the local restaurants on the beach. At first social distancing enabled them to stay open. Sadly we are now in lockdown and the restaurants are only open for takeaway and delivery. We hope that everything will come back to normal when the weather improves.

The pictures below were taken with the Hipstamatic app on my phone. The app uses software filters to make the images look as though they were taken with a vintage film camera. This makes the result quite random and there is no editing after the picture has been taken. For more of my Hipstamatic pictures have a look in the Hipstamatic portfolio or under the Hipstamatic topic.
