2018-52

Week 52 – The last blog post of the year, and also the last one before taking a break from blogging.

My last picture is one I took this week with my favorite camera Fujifilm X-T2 and vintage lens Pentacon 50 mm f1.8

I’ll continue to post pictures on Instagram (link on top) – Hope to see you there! 🙂

And last but not least: Happy New Year!

Happy 4th advent! Wishing you all happy holidays!

Here’s a picture I took a few days ago; The NEMO science museum here in Amsterdam. The building was designed by Renzo Piano who’s also famous for designing Centre Pompidou in Paris, The Chard in London, and The Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC.

The bicycle bridge leading to NEMO is called ‘Mr. J.J. van der Veldebrug’ (bridge number 1939), and this year it’s part of the Amsterdam Light Festival. The artwork was made by Dutch artist Peter Vink.

Happy 3rd advent!

The annual Amsterdam Light Festival has begun. I haven’t had time to check out all the art pieces yet, but here are two of them that I photographed the other day – “Two Lamps” and “Spider on a bridge”.

Happy 2nd advent!

I just went for a little walk, it’s a bit rainy but this is my favorite time to just walk around in Amsterdam. The city is so pretty with all the lights!

Hello December 🙂 and Happy 1st advent!

This afternoon I was in Muiden, a cute little town about 15 km south-east of Amsterdam. Weather conditions weren’t great for photography, but a friendly sheep posed nicely in front of the Muidersloot 🙂 This castle was built in 1280 but demolished in the year 1300, then rebuilt about a hundred years later.
