123. Southern Flevoland, the Netherlands, summer 1990.

123. "Trees nr. 19" "Queue please"
-----------------------------------------------------------
The evening sun gives the sky an orange colour. This part of the Netherlands used to be the bottom of a sea. Lots of trees have been planted here, along the roads, but also in the shape of small forests. There is an amazing amount of wildlife in this new territory.
-----------------------------------------------------------
On the site of the Dutch weather forecaster Marjon de Hond you can see new weather photographs on a regular basis:

122. "Trees nr. 18" "Finally the kids left home"
I'm always looking for trees with personality.
There are billions of trees on earth, more trees than humans, and they are all different.

121. Donegal, Ireland, summer 1990.



This picture has been seen
287 times
121. "Trees nr. 17" "The Triplets"
This is the flat peat landscape of Donegal. A small tree adjusted itself to the strong wind from the west. The colourful plastic bags in the background contain peat. The Irish on the westcoast still use a lot of peat for heating their houses. You can smell the distinct odour of the smoke everywhere. There still is a peat-fired power station in Ireland. An Irishman said to me once:
"Peat, lots of smoke but no heat"

120. Etchingham, England, Summer 1994.



This picture has been seen

120. "Trees nr. 16" "Me and my shadow"
Great Britain is in our view the most underestimated holiday country of Europe. We really like the footpaths in Great Britain. Wish we had a system like that in the Netherlands. This is close to a cottage of our friends, we stayed there a few times during different summers.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Once more LOMOGRAPHY. (see text with ph. 119)
The first time I came in to contact with the phenomenon was in the summer of 1979. We had been travelling in China for 4 weeks with a group of about 30 people. The journey back was by train from Beijing via Mongolia and the Soviet Union, a trip of 8 days. During the journey one of our fellow travellers decided to take a picture from the train window at exactly 12 o'clock every day. We were next to him for the countdown, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, click. It made for a series of surprising photographs. It was 12 years before the phenomenon got its name.

119. Winchelsea beach, England, summer 1994.



This picture has been seen
216 times
119. "Trees nr. 15 " and "Stone nr. 11"
This was once a tree, now it is part of a timbering on a rocky English beach. The tides deposit the stones in a different place each time. The erosion by sand, pebbles and salt water make beautiful sculptures of the timber. See also photographs 53, 54, 55 and 58 in ARCHIVES.

What is LOMO PHOTOGRAPHY or LOMOGRAPHY.
For more information see this site:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour/documentaries/lomo/
For lomo photograpy by a colleague of mine see this site:
http://www.lomohomes.com/reneverhagen
There is a lomo exhibition in Amsterdam
(de Wittenstraat 100)
23/01/04 t/m 23/02/04

The 10 golden rules for lomography are:
1. Always take your Lomo whenever or wherever you go.
2. Use it day and night.
3. Lomography is a part of your life.
4. Exercise with handheld exposures.
5. Get as close as you can to your subject.
6. Don't think! Just do it!
7. Be quick.
8. Don't make any plans for compositions.
9. You'll find out later.
10. Don't abide by the above rules.

117. "Snow and ice nr. 18"
These snowdikes along the road slowly melt away in the summer sun. The red colour is caused by stone dust from the mountains.

112. "Snow and ice nr. 13"
The ice of the Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier, slowly crumbles away into a lake called Jökullsarlon. This form reminded me of the "Floating Sculpture" by the artist Marta Pan in the Dutch Kröller-Müller Museum. This sculpture also slowly revolves in the water because of the wind.
