Scheveningen boulevard is under construction

The Scheveningen boulevard is under construction

I went to Scheveningen boulevard, yesterday, to enjoy the beautiful weather at the beach and terraces.
After parking the car close at Scheveningen harbor while walking towards the boulevard and the Scheveningen beach, I noticed a largely fenced building site, north of the Scheveningen boulevard.

Legal Graffiti

On some parts of the fence, paintings were made. While other parts were still blank. In addition, names were written down on the blank parts so in a few weeks the look will be different.

The two funny guys, on the photo down, told that local graffiti artists have been invited to do their artwork on this fence.

Yet, the assigned graffiti artists still need to paint large areas. On the other hand, there were already some nice paintings done.

Steady progress

On this beautiful day, two artists were working on their part of the fence though. The artists were working concentrated, surrounded by all their gear.

Anyway, I had a beautiful day.
Beside the fence getting shape slowly, it was nice to relax on one of the terraces and walk on Scheveningen boulevard.

I have to go back soon and check the progress of the artwork.
And walking at the Scheveningen beach or boulevard, on a beautiful day, is always fun anyway.

Black and White in June

Black and White in June
Thumb up! Black and White
Thumb up!
Black and White

After some nice streets events, and day trips with Edze, I had quite some pictures to sort out. Some of them looked awesome in Black & White.
So I thought, let’s post one black and white photo each day in June!

The subjects

I’d read some articles about street photography, just to find out what to take into account before trying anything.

If you’re interested in street photography I would advise you to do some reading on this subject. A lot of articles can be found on the internet.
Keep in mind, it’s not what you do photograph but more how and when, with regard to privacy etc.

You can find some articles on my Flipboard page, Photography Tips, which I have been reading.

Actually, it’s just a matter of doing, scan your surrounding constantly and you’ll start to see more scenes worth photographing.

During the cycling event, I took my time and stayed in one place for some time, just to see what was happening around me. Of course, there were the situations with objects or persons which were easy to catch (like the cyclists) Others I found a little bit more difficult because I was close by and was hoping they didn’t notice me, staring at them through my lens. Exciting!!

During the day trips with Edze, most of the time I did not have the opportunity. A kid jumping around, yelling for his dad to see or do this and that is a challenge on its own. It was a lot of fun though.

The results

After gathering a lot of images of all kind of subjects I was very pleased with the results.
I had given myself the opportunity to do this experiment and I loved it!

What’s next?

More Black and White photos will follow definitely.
Most of the photo’s where taken in the place where I’m living. A small village. So much to see.
Imagine what will happen in a big city like Rotterdam!
I’ll plan a visit soon! So keep an eye on this site to find out what will happen.

My portfolio has been updated already so if you can’t wait to see them, you’re welcome to have a look at my portfolio “Black & White”

Enjoy!!

 

In Memoriam

“In Memoriam”

3 weken geleden wandelde ik op straat, mij realiserende dat ik  kan gaan waar ik wil, hier in gewoon in Nederland en ik bezocht de rustplaats van een oude vriend.
Ook stond ik stil bij gedenkstenen van een paar, voor mij, onbekenden. Deze kwam ik  tegen op straat als Stolpersteine. (Een project van de Duitse kunstenaar Gunter Demnig).

Deze bezoekjes raakten me heel diep.

Alles heeft een reden - Everything has a reason
Alles heeft een reden – Everything has a reason
Vandaag is het 4 mei, Nationale dodenherdenking.

De Tweede wereld oorlog en alles wat er aan ellende na kwam wordt herdacht.
Mensen op de vlucht, mensen die zijn omgebracht, mensen die hun leven hebben gegeven om vrede en veiligheid te bewerkstelligen en te behouden.

Vandaag zijn er nog steeds mensen op de vlucht en velen verliezen hierbij het leven ook vechten er nog altijd  mensen, soms ver van huis, voor vrede en veiligheid.

Hoe dubbel is het om te herdenken terwijl alle ellende door blijft gaan.

“Alles heeft een reden”

Dave, oude vriend, jij vocht ver van huis voor vrede en veiligheid.
Alles heeft een reden” zijn de woorden die je steeds tegen me zegt als ik je een bezoekje breng.

Na al die jaren blijft mijn vraag: Waarom en waarom jij?

Respect vriend.

Always

What’s next?

Still to figure out a lot.
The SNAP auto poster is still a pain. It works but I need to get the different account setup correctly.

If you like to check out SNAP as a plugin on your site, take a look over here.
I have a lot of fun with it.

Portfolio Update

Portfolio Update

Had a busy week with two school events at Edze’s school.
One soccer tournament and one trip to the Zoo Diergaarde Blijdorp. I was totally down and out after these two days. Kids in the age of 8 – 9 years is a handful when trying to control them. Impossible!

At the Zoo the group got an education about camouflage in nature and what sorts of camouflage are used by animals. Have to say, learned some new things by myself as well.

And, a nice surprise was that there was a new family member born within the colobus monkeys.
See picture down below. It was a bit dark and behind glass, so quality is not that good, unfortunately.

What Else?

Anyway.
I have not yet posted pictures of both school events and the kids.  The school has the first pick of these 😉
But on the way to the Zoo and back to school, I made some pictures with my phone, one or two of them are posted in my Portfolio.

Galleries

Some more have been added to the galleries Wildlife_Birds and Wildlife_Birds of Prey.

What’s next?

Yes, Social media again.
I finished the Social Media.

Equipment used by ShiftyNL-photography

The Equipment

Having looked around on this site you might wonder what equipment I’m using.
Not that it’s important when you just like to see the photo’s on this site.
You just might not be interested in it.

Anyway, I like to tell a bit more about the hardware I use to get these results.
I also use Lightroom, Photoshop and some other nice plugin or standalone tools.

Therefore I added a page to the website to show you what I use.

Updated My Portfolio on ShiftyNL-Photography

Today I updated My Portfolio with older and newer work”.

Galleries

Two new Galleries are added to the site

Bumble bee, My Portfolio

What else?

I implemented an auto-post option into the site, which makes it possible to re-post any news and/or update to 5 other social media accounts.
Some live testing is in progress so you might see some not so useful messages the next couple of days which will be deleted afterward. 😉

What’s next?

Again I added a new social media channel. This time Google+.
Because I was doing an online Social Media Course, I learned that a Google+ account adds a lot more to any posting you do.
Facebook and Instagram do have their own policies which are not always the best for you.
Have look at my Google+ account.

The Galleries

After having made all the picture sizes equal I added some new Galleries.
It’s looking even better now.

What’s next?

Social media. Again I added a new social media channel. This time Flipboard.
Because of the setup of Flipboard, I liked the idea to set it up.

Take a look at my Flipboard account!

Yet, I’m still looking for an auto-post script to have it all automated.
There are a few but these are limited to only 3 accounts.
Unfortunately, I have more than 3.

The Gallery

The Wildlife_Birds has been added as a gallery to the Portfolio.
Which looks quite awesome.

What’s next?

I’m still looking for an auto-post script, most of all to get some posting automated.
Because of automating, I only need to align up posts and have the script do the rest for me.

And another social media is added. Have a look at my Tumblr account.

You can think, Why are you using so many social media accounts?
That’s a good question.
Because I like fiddling whit social media and web development, to some extent, I just love to be active in that way.

It’s fun!!
