playtime




We had a family celebration today. There were many children and 
I love to look at them as they are playing. With all their imagination. 
They were pirates, princesses and even tigers. They went to countries 
I've never been, with the strangest transport.

white horse




While traveling I always run into a white horse. A white horse standing
alone in open space. 
Pictures above are taken on my last trip, in France. Below you see 
a picture of the horse I saw in Granada. The last picture is one from 
a white horse on Patmos, in Greece.

white clouds in a blue sky






Yesterday JJ and I visited Bordeaux. I didn't expect much of the city,
but it was awesome!
We found a lot of nice places, thanks to this article in The Guardian.

surfers' paradise







Some impressions of the last days. The coast of the Atlantic Ocean is 
beautiful, but very touristic this time of the year. Fortunately we've 
always found the quiet spots. I hope to come back once in springtime.

day at the beach




We had a great day at the beach today!
Finally I could preforming an idea that I already had in mind for a long 
time; pictures of me with Rinus' masc- bag on my head in front of the sea. 
They might be a little strange and scary, but I like them nevertheless.

peta's place





On our first night on holiday we were invited to sleep over at Peta's
place. She's a good friend of JJ's parents and a very friendly woman,
full of positive energy. She has a beautiful home, in a small French
town, south of Paris. 
I've made some pictures in her house (above). The window changed
her live, she told us. A story about how she met her neighbors trough
the window, that looks out onto the neighbors' garden.
And the fourth picture is one of her bedspray, which her mother sewed 
from old clothes.
Under you see some pictures from her neighbor 's place. An lady of 91 
years old. She lives in the "chateau" during the summers. We had a
swim in her newly built swimming pool.
Last picture I took for M. She loves Mickey, as you can she on her
beautiful blog. It's a Mickey-keychain that Peta gave to her neighbor.

vivian maier





Today I went to an exhibition in Ghent, with pictures of Vivian Maier.
I liked her pictures a lot, but I also was quite fascinated by her
biography.
She kept her work secret and her pictures were only discovered after
she died. You can read the history here or see the documentary trailer
here.
Vivian Maier made a lot of self-portraits in mirrors and windows.
Some of them made me think of a picture my dad took, in the mirror
of a shop (see the picture below).
Because my dad is a photographer, I have many pictures from when
I was little. But only a few of us together. That's why this one is very
special to me.

maria








Today the Maria statue moved from the church to the just restored 
chapel in the woods. She has to be brought by horse and carriage, 
which my friends and I decorated.
The event was remarkable and the preparations themselves where 
really fun!
I had such a good time today! Thank you Katrien, Maartje, Ester, 
Wim, Tony and mom!!!
