Thank you for the flowers

Thank you for the flowers

Happy to see you again! It amazes me time and time again to witness how after a long grey, cold and dark winter nature comes back to life. Flowers miraculously reappear with a breathtaking abundance, bringing back colors and insects to our garden. The first sign of spring arriving are the snowdrops. While the garden is still barren the tiny white flowers appear. They are soon to be followed by...

Grey beach Hipstas

Grey beach Hipstas

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...

Tree silhouette Hipstas

Tree silhouette Hipstas

Trees are living things and every one of them is unique in its form. They grow, straight or twisted, big or small, depending on the soil their roots stand in, the water level, the wind they are exposed to. I love to picture them as silhouettes, without leaves, when their bare shape is visible. Therfore my tree silhouette Hipstas are often spooky, most of them taken in the winter and in low...

We spent a few days in London for the launch of the Remembering Lions book. During those days we also visited the Wonderful Things exhibition of Tim Walker in the Victoria and Albert Museum. This exhibition explored the creative process of one of the world's most inventive photographers, through his pictures, films, photographic sets, and special installations. Walker has been creating signature...

Safari Hipstas

Safari Hipstas

On safari we use cameras and lenses that allow us to zoom in on a scene. But sometimes it is great to take a step back. Hipstamatic allows me to do this. Taking picture becomes more abstract this way. Instead of details you focus on the composition, the whole picture. And it is a nice way to kill time. On safari you have to be patient and wait for things to happen. Hope for animals to behave in...

Leven in Hamburg

Leven in Hamburg

Leven in Hamburg was een feest en we zullen het missen. Ons huis, de rozentuin, het overdekte balkon waar we zo vaak hebben gezeten. We woonden in het pittoreske Treppenviertel met zijn vele kleine huizen dicht aan dicht gebouwd tegen de "Elbhang". Elke zaterdag liepen we met onze "hackenporsche" de vele trappen omhoog naar het dorp om boodschappen te doen op de markt. Als beloning volgde voor...

Roadtrip Kenya Hipstas

Roadtrip Kenya Hipstas

To save time we often take internal flights to travel within African countries. But road transfers are great to get a feel for the country and its people. Like everywhere in the world roads attract a lot of people, vehicles, businesses, buildings, construction, advertising, smells and trash. Every country turns this into a local mix depending on the local habits and laws. In 2016 we made a road...

Ponton Op ‘n Bulln

Ponton Op ‘n Bulln

Das Schöne am Wohnen am Elbufer ist dass es viele nette kleine Restaurants gibt. Auf dem Anleger am Blankeneser Elbstrand gab es einst eine Würstchenbude. Inzwischen ist dies mehr als ein netter Imbiss. Wir haben dort oft ein Glas Wein getrunken, Fisch gegessen und die Schiffe an uns vorbeiziehen lassen. The pictures below were taken with the Hipstamatic app on my phone. The app uses software...
