Paris, The Louvre

A bit of ‘nostalgia” today. It was almost a year ago that we visited Paris. For me, the first time in France and in Paris. I don’t think I ever walked as much before as we did in Paris. The city is large for European standards, but walking is quite …

Venice Reflections #1

As I mentioned in a previous post, during our gondola ride in Venice, David and I started to notice interesting reflections on the water, and as such, photos were made. The interesting thing about getting shots of reflections, is like David said, you just have to keep making them as …

Fontana di Trevi (Trevi Fountain)

It’s impossible to go to Rome and not make this photograph.  The Trevi fountain is one of the most well known “attractions” in Rome with good reason. It’s a beautiful fountain that has been here for hundreds of years (although not all of those years it in its current shape). …

Scheveningen Sunset #2

  Back to colour today, and also back to Scheveningen. Taken on the same day as my previous post of the same subject, just a few minutes later in the day. I wanted to stretch the colours on this one even further then what I’ve done previously, and I’m quite pleased with …

Soviet Zulu V Class B-80 Submarine in the Amsterdam harbour

A few months ago, I learned that there was an old Soviet submarine parked on the north side of the Amsterdam harbour. There is actually a ferry that takes you from the back of Amsterdam Centraal Station right next to it 10 short minutes later. Apparently it was bought to be a party …

Venice Carnival 2012 #8

On our second last day of the Venice Carnival 2012 Photo Tour, we all got up extremely early (and it was a Saturday) to head to Saint Marco’s square and make some portraits of the people in costumes. Well we all got up early, except me. I accidentally slept in …

Burano Island #1

Trying something a little different from me with this image. This was taken on our second day of the photo tour when we made a 40 minute boat trip to the lovely island of Burano. Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon famous for its coloured houses and hand …

Scheveningen Sunset #3

  Felt like going back into the archives to post another long exposure shot of Scheveningen at sunset taken last August. This image is similar to a black and white version I posted a little while back. I picked this one also because it was entirely processed in Adobe Lightroom …

Venice Reflections #2

  During a gondola ride around Venice, one thing we noticed was how still the water was in some of the more inner canals. This lead to exploring the reflections in the water, which of course lead to photos being taken. This is one of them, and I have a …

Venice Carnival 2012 #7

  I could not help but stop and make a photograph of this person. The costume was incredible and she was very graceful. I spent a few minutes with her to get this shot which was taken on the very last day in Venice just before heading out to the …
