About three weeks ago I posted photo’s of three of the male athletes that I photographed at the National Championship Fitness and Bodybuilding on November 2, 2014, the Netherlands.

Today, I finally catch up to give some of the female athletes their share of attention too – so here are three of the female athletes.

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 😉 .

Admitted, they are attractive, decorative and delicious, these huge round ‘Old Amsterdam’ cheeses, piled up in the window display, in yellow and black. And great to take home as a gift after a vacation in the Netherlands too!  The old Amsterdam houses reflecting in the shop window and the everywhere present bicycles add to the ‘typical Holland’ atmosphere…
