Thursday Doors 25 June • A Place In The Sun

In cities like the Hague only a few are blessed with place outside where they can sit in the sun. As such, everybody makes the most of it. Even if it means bending the rules a little bit and putting seats outside on the pavement (which, needless to say, is not their property) next to their front door. Fortunately, no one seems to care and the authorities seem to condone it.

Monday Window 22 June • A View From Above

Toy Boats • Monday Window

From my archives. A View From Above as my entry in Ludwig Keck’s challenge Monday Window 22 June. A familiar sight for almost all of you, but I still think it’s a mesmerizing view. The vastness of the ocean and our rather limited understanding of life deep below that surface.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #102 • A Quiet Moment

A Quiet Moment

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #102 • A Quiet Moment

Patti Moed is this week’s host. She’s challenging us to capture A Quiet Moment. The lockdown rules in the Netherlands have been relaxed considerably, hence the streets, squares, parks and beaches are filling up with people. Fortunately most of them practise social distancing.

Here’s a short movie that I posted before to give you an impression of what is was like at the height of the lockdown in the otherwise bustling Amsterdam.

Coming back to the challenge at hand, here are some photos that I took at the local tennis club, which is situated in the woods. Near the entrance there is this statue of man lost in thought.

Just opposite this statue is this clock that doesn’t work anymore. It is as if time stands still…

Inside the clubhouse this painting captures a sight seldom seen, three silent women.

In the previous post all the featured doors are located in the same street. I thought it would be fun to continue that theme.

Monday Window 15 June • Classic Jaguar Windows

Classic Jaguar E-type rear window

From my archives. some Classic Jaguar Windows as my entry in Ludwig Keck’s challenge Monday Window 15 June. To paraphrase an old cliché: they don’t make them like these anymore where style takes precedence over functionality.

I had the pleasure to take this cat out for a spin and I must admit, looking in the rear view mirror was akin like peering through a letterbox. But who cares in a Jag like this.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #101 • One Single Flower

Flower lover Cee Neuner is this week’s host. Not surprisingly she themed this edition One Single Flower. Cee highlighted this quote

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

The photo below was taken in Cadaquès, Catalunia in February and clearly signaled spring was in the air.

Now let’s have a closer look at the miracle of that flower.
