Street Photography

Cell phones in the street – 01


Nederlands (link)

Sunday Street Day… It’s not hard to find people with cell phones in the streets these days… So I thought of making a selection of cell-phone shots this time… Here are a few of my latest ‘catches’ – made in the Streets of Amsterdam ( and 1 in Utrecht) – the Netherlands…

Do you have street photo’s of people with cell phones too? Leave a link in a comment to this blog post, and I’ll come over to have a look… 🙂

Street photography : three summer Dam stories

For Sunday Street day, I’m digging up some summer Dam stories today, made earlier this year, on the Dam square in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (July 2014)

The wool of a black sheep is just as warm

Another street shot today, but not a Dam-story this time. This photo was made on the Nieuwmarkt square Farmer’s market. Another great place in Amsterdam to hang around in the hopes of catching some nice street shots… 🙂

Title inspired by a quote of Ernest Lehman:
“After all, the wool of a black sheep is just as warm”

Dam-stories : the statue painter

It’s 1.30 am here, so it’s in fact Monday already, but in many parts of the world it’s still Sunday, so it’s all right to still post my #SundayStreetday photo, right?

I think I may start a new theme under my “Streets of Amsterdam” series: the Dam-stories… : Street shots made on the Dam in Amsterdam. – Here is the first one 😀

Last summer street shots of the June series


Deze blog post in het Nederlands (link).

Well, summer is really over in Amsterdam. Actually, fall has taken over, and it’s beautiful outside. It’s time to get out there for both great autumn street and nature shots. But I’m still a little house-bound because of loads of organisational work to do, so I have to bind myself to my chair for a few days more.

No problem as for the photo blogging though, since I have a lot of great material left to process from the past months of photo shoots on the streets. So now let’s reminisce on a great summer with these last three street photo’s from the June series 😉 .

International Photo Festival Leiden – an impression


Deze blog post in het Nederlands (link)

Last week I was in Leiden for the International Photo Festival. I wanted to make a photo story about it for Demotix. And if you were able to follow my blogs these past days, then you know already that this wasn’t the only thing I photographed… Indeed, after a very long day, I came home with over 800 photo’s and enough material to make not just one, but at least 4 photo stories! And I wasn’t bored for one moment!

My story about the Photo Festival for Demotix is life on Demotix in the meantime, and you can find it here: International Photo Festival Leiden with as theme ‘New Photographers’

Ten of my own favourites of this series, I’ve selected for this blog. Some of them are also on Demotix, in colour, but there are some others that didn’t fit into the Demotix series, and I’d like to show those here. I transmitted them all into a nice light sepia.

I think that this series gives a very nice impression of the Photo Festival, and my interpretation of it. So I’m really happy to show them to you here.

Sunday Street Day


Link naar deze blogpost in het NEDERLANDS

It’s a few weeks now that I skipped posting my Sunday Street photo’s, because I had other things to do that had priority. But I don’t want to forget about it all together. So, although it’s Monday night already, here come my Sunday Street shots.

Till now, I picked two different photo’s for my English and Dutch blog, but as of today, I’ll pick two, and post them on both of my blogs. Here they come 🙂
