A blurred image of the Ij river in Amsterdam

Amsterdam, the Ij

A little experiment begins. I’ve been playing with camera movement and long exposures for the last little while. Mostly because of this unintentionally blurred image I’m sharing with you today. I know this is not unique, and that there are several really good examples of intentional camera movement photographs, but …

The Pink Flamingos Artis, the Amsterdam Zoo

Something a little different this week. Weeks ago in a cold winter day, I had the idea of making a long exposure of the flamingos at the Artis, the wonderful zoo in Amsterdam. I had hoped that most of them would be standing still and sleeping, and I got lucky, as …

A foggy evening on the Pastoorbrug in Amsterdam

Taken quite a few weeks ago when Amsterdam was covered in a thick winter fog. This area of Amsterdam is one of the most picturesque, as well as one of the oldest. Starting from the Brouwersgracht over in the Joordan, and stretching into the medieval core of the city, it is one …

Gigantic Snow Flakes in Amsterdam

  We had a nice little snow storm yesterday here in Amsterdam, where the snow flakes were anything but little. The city quickly turned into something that looked like out of a movie set. The snow quickly covered everyone and everything, yet it was just beautiful to look at and …

So I’ve decided to start a 52 week self portrait project. I plan on posting one new self-portrait every Sunday, this is the first. Hope you don’t get sick of looking at my face 🙂 Taken at the last minute this evening, in a foggy Vondel Park.
