I always wonder what the stories are from the people I pass on the street. Where are they coming from? Where are they going?
I’m leaving the Netherlands today; our bus back to London goes at 11 and then we’ll be stuck in there for 10 hours. Ugh. Glad to be going back, but not looking forward to the trip at all. So for these last few hours that I’m here, here’s the only “Dutch”; photo I’ve made during this holiday: Chocomel!
I love how this photo of a candle turned out. Looking at it reminded me again of Carols by Candlelight (although this photo is taken inside). I’m not sure if it’s only an Australian tradition (I don’t think it is), but the idea is a city-wide gathering, usually outdoors in a park, to sing carols on Christmas Eve by candlelight. Quite fun, but then again Australia’s December weather is much more enjoyable than that here.
Photo 4 from my Liverpool walk. I loved the architecture in Liverpool, especially all the different sculptures you could find everywhere. This angel stood out to me though, and I like how I’ve captured it partly in the darkness. You can’t exactly see it in detail, but the silhouette is gorgeous.
Photo 3 from my Liverpool walk. I love how it plays with the shadow and sunlight.
Only now realising that the title doesn’t make sense. It’s not “Me” and “My Shadow”, it’s only “My Shadow”.
Another of my Liverpool walk photos.
Fellow geocachers watching the sun set. Loving the lensflare 🙂
Here’s the first photo of our trip to Liverpool last weekend. It’s a statue of Captain FJ Walker (nicknamed Johnnie Walker like the whiskey).
Looking at this photo, you’d think there is a completely different story behind the statue. A man waiting for a long lost lover, always keeping watch in the hope her ship will sail in. Binoculars and red rose in hand.
Last Tuesday i played around with taking some portraits of myself through the mirror. The sun was just so pretty and I knew I had to at least try to experiment a bit with it. At a certain stage though, the sun shifted in such a way that the dirt and spots on the mirror were highlighted and I had to stop. Next goal: learning how to use the remote and taking pictures of myself that way.
This photo reminds me a bit of a book cover, like it could be called The Blogger’s Gambit or The Adorable Geek 🙂
The second in this series. Not my most elegant expression, but I like the contrast of the light and dark halves.
Here’s the third (and for now, I think, final) photo of my mirror session. Again it’s not completely showing my face, and I love the way my right eye is only partly in it. I should learn to make some more ‘intense’ expressions.
As a kid, I loved The Secret Garden. Not the story though, but the idea, the concept of something beautiful hidden away. This photo reminds me of that; you can’t see what the end of the path is leading to… could it be a secret garden?
