Op 20 Augustus liepen we samen door het gebied achter de hoge duinen bij Paal 3 waar we overheen liepen om onze tocht voort te zetten over het Noordzee strand om daarna onze photowalk voor te zetten in het half duister naar West Terschelling. Een stevige wind en helder weer zorgden voor prachtige plaatjes. Onze camera’s stonden niet stil.
Everyone on this planet is going green. That is what we try to tell ourselves. But behind the scenes there is still a lot to change before we realize a truly circular economy. We literally burn everything to meet our energy needs: oil, coal, gigantic amounts of wood from logged forests and oil extracted from dead animals’ corpses. That burning destroys everything. We can skirt around it or deny it, but Mother Nature is more than fed up with us.
I have been using noise cancelling headphones for years. Due to a mechanical defect in the old ones, it was time for a new one and that became the Sony WH-1000XM5 and compared to the previous models I have had, it is a huge update. Especially when it comes to the noise cancelling.
When he introduced “The Last Ship” on his Twitter account, I found the musical on Youtube and watched it many times. All this time I wondered what he loved about that story. Was it because of similarities in his own timeline and perhaps he had plans of his own for this wonderful musical? You sometimes have to want to build something great to achieve something.
Starting a search for the source of inspiration for you photography. That moment lands sooner or later for everyone involved in photography, whether for hobby or work. You can get that inspiration from a wonderful book, but in my opinion, the best memories come from conversations with the photographer himself.
De video documentaire ‘The spirit of Luskentyre’ is een parel die je op Youtube kunt vinden. Het project heeft zoveel mooie ervaringen gedeeld over Nigel Dansons 30 dagen op het strand van Luskentyre. Niet alleen in de video’s zie je echt prachtige beelden, maar ook in het boek wat Nigel heeft gemaakt. Ik heb het boek (nummer #1286 van de 1500) inmiddels binnen en het heeft mij nieuwe inspiratie en ideeën gebracht.

During a visit to the bunker museum at Terschelling in August 2018, I had already seen the Udet Boje on the grounds. The top was missing and everything was covered under a layer of rust. A small information board told more about the object and I captured it all with my camera.
There is a tremendous history prior in the development of the USB-C standard, which will continue to evolve in the future. USB-C is a connector-only standard. What all is connected to that and what protocols are communicated with is an entirely different story.
Over the years, a lot of techniques have become more complex and have reached more and more limits when it comes to producing electronic products in consumer electronics and in telecom. We have seen tremendous developments in less than three decades. We have reached physical limits several times, and yet we manage to stretch them further and further to the point where everything is unattainable.
Last weeks I was lucky enough to test the successor to my Sony A7RIV. That was a very special experience. In that camera there are techniques built in that until recently were not possible at all. Techniques that surprised me very positively. The level of this successor is another big step up.
