Wading birds

Wading birds

The most famous are the heron and the stork. The second was almost extinct in the Netherlands in the 1960s, but is increased in population thanks to an initiative in 1969. In the above picture I first saw the Heron after I saw the picture on the computer. The white heron would be a special bird. He has been known since Egyptian times as the bringer of something new, he stands for change. The white heron is a very special...

Repetitions

Repetitions

Spoken repetitions can be boring, but not the repetitions in nature and of buildings. There, they are a piece of art to me. My first repetitions, also from a special perspective, were taught to me by my "private photography teacher". See above and the last one. The one in this text was mine, before the lesson. Greenhouses
Drops and cobwebs

Drops and cobwebs

Drops are like little "diamonds". They sparkle in the light and turn the world upside down, literally, when you look through them. A cobweb looks very delicate, but is very strong. I try to be such a "diamond", but don't have to be as strong as the cobweb; because, when I am the diamond, there are always people around me who stand next to me in my "weakness". And that is my strength. 30 oktober 2022
A way of looking at “things”

A way of looking at “things”

Looking at something through a small opening can give a very different picture. The same with looking at people: we often only see a small part of the whole person, so the picture is never complete. It may even be "clouded" by our view of ourselves. Sometimes a certain situation gives a completely different, almost comical image than what is actually intended.
Reflections (mirroring)

Reflections (mirroring)

A reflection often gives a different picture than the original. This depends on the "mirror". Likewise when I look in the mirror. I see my reflection, and depending on how I feel, I see me at that moment, but only the outside. But to really see me, I need to look in the mirror of my heart. In this overview reflections in the city as well as in nature. With different kinds of mirrors. Some are with a big ­čśë....

Special shots

Special shots

In dark mornings I played with the light of a WakaWaka, and placed it in dead trees. The first pictures where the best. I tried it more than once, but never got them as nice as the first shots of December 25, 2019. But I also used the light of the sun. Like in the picture above; And the last one. The sun makes even dead nature alive. On the left the first spontaneous attempts. On the right side the...

Ducks

Ducks

Besides Swans and Geese, Ducks are the most famous Dutch water birds. They come in different types. Ducks radiate tranquility, offer protection and are graceful on the water. They are connected to the earth, air and water. Above a couple wild Ducks males, resting on a branch above water. Under a female with young. Always endearing to watch. After hatching from the egg, they walk and swim. And learn what they need to do to survive. I remember I saw...

Other waterbirds

Other waterbirds

In addition to the well-known water birds, on this post a collection of the other water birds. The Cormorant is a fairly large bird, which stands still for a long time on something standing in the water; this can be a board, but also a stump of wood.  Spritual: It has a "down to earth" mentality. To dry themselves or to warm themselves, they sit on staff with their wings spread. When hunting for food, they can dive to a...
