You're goin' to rise up singing'

This photo sums up this season in Holland. While the sun might be shining (occasionally), the beaches are mostly deserted. It’s rather chilly out there, and the Covid-19 scare still is sort of omnipresent

On a positive note though, the light does make for some spectacular photography.

Anyways, not be a grumpy old man, most of these mornings I sort of ‘rise up singing’ kind of mood.

So far for this entry in the Lens-Artists Challenge #104.

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.
