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)

Three of the Male athletes at the National Championship Fitness and Bodybuiling 2014


Deze blog post in het Nederlands (link)

Last weekend I was at the National Championship Fitness and Bodybuilding. Not one of my usual subjects to photograph, but I had a very good reason to be there 😉 . So I made use of the occasion to make a photo reportage. Always a challenge to work on a subject out of your own comfort zone…  Here a selection of three of the male athletes. What do you think of the result?

More photo’s made at this event you can see in my Demotix photo reportage

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 😉 .

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 🙂

This museum guard was walking around with two red and white traffic poles under his arms, which he has to place every afternoon to block the traffic in this narrow street next to the Amsterdam museum

Would the older man not hear what the young people behind him are talking? Is he daydreaming or is he secretly eavesdropping? What do you think?

 

So let’s see what next …
