DSC03804-d05kWalking on beaches is a passion I seem to share with Jo. Which is why I would like to share this walk (or maybe even series of walks) on her Monday Walks collection: Walking the beaches of south Holland, you find many things – among them the strandpaviljoens, beach cafés standing on stilts at the seaward base of the dunes, a welcome refuge from rain and cold and in case of an appetite for fish & chips. As a landscape photographer, I have always hated them because they are prone to get in the way. But this winter, I decided to turn the tables: You’ll see a couple of strandpaviljoen pictures this month.

A Walcheren Walk

A Monday walk in early January took us south-east from Zoutelande. We did not quite reach Dishoek though on account of the icy wind. The breakwaters lent themselves to trying some abstract photography though, before we found a bit of shelter in the dunes on our way back (along with some WW II bunkers which were photographed with black and white film and will be part of my “Fragments of a Language of Terror”).

On Nature’s Whim

Isn’t it sometimes hard to tell if something was arranged or just happened? Esspecially when looking at photographs, we often are at a loss.

The situation you see here was composed by nature, and I only positioned it in a frame. While many photographers arrange people and things so they look natural in their photos, I love to do it the other way round – I do not arrange but love my subjects to look like they were deliberately positioned.
