April 3th 2021: We'are on lockdown at midnight.
It's our N°4, a total lockdown!
Courage to all of us, stay safe. - Be the Lord with all of us.
Here are my flowers of Valentine’s Day.
Well dried, they remain beautiful, even more beautiful than ever!
Fresh, they were red; dried, their colour turns purple. Amazing!
Yesterday was holy Friday: Look at the cross and you will see the blue sky, a sign of hope!
3 avril 2021, cette nuit à minuit nous entrons en confinement: le N°4, un confinement total.
Courage à nous tous, portez-vous bien. - Que l'Eternel soit avec nous.
Voici quelques-unes de mes fleurs de la St Valentin. Séchées, elles demeurent plus belles que jamais! Fraîche, leur couleur était rouge; là, elle a tourné au mauve. Etonnant!
Hier, c'était Vendredi saint: monte les yeux vers la Croix et tu verras un ciel bleu, signe d'Espoir!
Due to the pandemic and the stay-at-home orders over the last year, I have often resorted to photographing toys at home. Here are two shots (this and the previous post) from a recent project that I did. I lit the scene with some LED flashlights (pretending to be another car's headlights here), and posed the dinosaur and car like a scene from Jurassic Park. The "street" is an old dusty laptop and the "fog" is a piece of white tissue I moved around the frame during the long exposures.
These Konikhorses live in the wild in several nature areas in the Netherlands. Most of the time together with Galloway cows. Originally they are from Poland. Their coat is rough and they are rather small. They live from everything they find in nature area, except in severe winters. These horses are very kind for humans, except when they have foals. I love them!
Had a great day out of the office yesterday with Beri! Here is an image I captured from Tunnel View in Yosemite NP of the full moonlit Valley captured with the new Sony Alpha 1. I captured this at 10pm with the moon just a tad below the monoliths camera-right. That is El Capitan (left and lit by the moon) and Cathedral Rocks and Bridalveil Fall on the right. Down the middle is Sentinel Dome, Half Dome and Cloud's Rest. I processed this purposely to lighten the overall scene - my creative decision, and yes, that is a portion of the lunar moon-dog (ice crystals lit by moonlight) in the upper right-hand corner of the frame.
Sony Alpha 1, Sony 12-24mm G Master, f/2.8, 30 seconds, 200 ISO
This is the waterbassin " Lange Vlieter" Today it was clear in colors how it works.
The water is entering in the left bassin ( 8 ha) from he canals. It is purifying and when it meets the average standard purification, it is transferred to the right side bassin ( 120 ha) where it stays for about 2 years. In the right bassin they control the progress of purification till it is ready as drinking water. The barrels in the middle controle the process..Of course no swimming, no boats but a peaceful " lake" were only ducks, rare birds and nature exists. I love this place and it is about 7 km to walk around.
A great project of Dutch watermanagement.
Milky Way over the ocean by the House of Refuge, Florida. There was haze or fog over the water and the stars were mostly obscured except for those high in the sky. At this time of year when the Milky Way rises around 1 AM, it is low in the sky with an elevation of only about 10 degrees.This is why I wanted to shoot it over the ocean.Great concept. Not so great result.
As usual, this year the cherry in our garden park blooms since march.
Sadly, the vagaries of wheather are so strong; with the frost,
the flowers are quickly damaged and fallen.
Comme d'habitude, cette année les fleurs de cerisier de notre parc publique
ont fleuri depuis mars.
Malheureusement, les caprices du temps sont si forts. Le gel a abîmé rapidement
et a fait tombé les fleurs.

Back in early June 2018, my youngest son Aaron and I took the first doors-off helicopter allowed up at sunrise over Kilauea's famed Fissure 8 on the Big Island of Hawaii. It just so happened, the venting lava hit its peak of 273 feet that morning! I'll never forget the pilot asking me, "how close do you want to get?" I responded, "can you put us right over the top of it!" This is a memory that will last both of us a lifetime!
March 20th: We'are on lock down tonight at midnight!

However, March is the beginning of Spring.
Long life and courage to all of us - Be the Lord with all of us.
20 mars 2021, cette nuit à minuit nous entrons en confinement-Phase 3.
Néanmoins, mars est le début du Printemps.
Longue vie et courage à nous tous - Que l'Eternel soit avec nous.
Being in semi-isolation due to the pandemic, I've been doing A LOT of digging into my archived photos. I decided to tackle photos taken in Sedona, Arizona back in May of 2013, almost eight years ago. I thought of trying many photos in B&W as I haven't posted many of my site. We had taken a tour with Pink Jeep during the late afternoon/early evening hours one day. During our descent from our high point when overlooking the Mogollon Rim, I took literally hundreds of bracketed photos with multiple exposures knowing that there may be moments when we would be looking toward the sun.
Before processing these 3 bracketed photos, I didn't have any high hopes for what would materialize. But the sunburst really materialized nicely without dominating the image. And I believe the sunburst being off-center works well.
A young boy peers out the window as I take the image. It was a cool day in downtown San Diego Ca. The streets were not busy with tourist, so I would imagine this is one way to view it all, at once. I focus the lighting to be sure he is seen, as it shows his wonderment. Not seen is his Mother with another younger child on the tour bus. Thx. AF~
Non pas le soleil! C'est le lampadaire du quartier, qui oh surprise, s'est enfin allumé mercredi. Alors qu'il est resté éteint depuis mi-novembre, plongeant le quartier dans le noir. Malgré maintes réclamations à la mairie, il a fallu plus de 3 mois pour se faire entendre! Afin que l'ampoule soit changée.
Merci Mr le Maire
Not the sun! It's the neighborhood lamppost, which, oh surprise, finally lit up on Wednesday. While it has been off since mid-Nov, plunging the neighborhood into darkness. Despite numerous complaints to the town hall, it took more than 3 months to make it heard! So that the bulb can be changed.
Thank you Mr Mayor
May the 1st 2021, Today is Labour Day, we usually offer a bouquet of lily of the valley and walk in the woods. In the absence of lily of the valley, here are some flowers. HAPPY MAY - Don't give up and Stay safe!
Aujourd'hui 1er mai 2021, fête du Travail: nous avons l'habitude d'offrir un bouquet de muguet et d'aller nous promener dans les bois. En l'absence de muguet, voici quelques fleurs. BON MOIS DE MAI - Tenons bon et prenons soin de nous!
Amo las puertas antiguas que mantienen las huellas del pasado. Visitando aldeas portuguesas encontré esta puerta que me cautivó
I love the old doors that keep the traces of the past. Visiting Portuguese villages I found this door that captivated me.
Comprendre la Nature des choses,
c’est accepter leur nécessité
et la façon dont elles s’inscrivent
dans la grande boucle de la Vie.
Dans l’immense univers du petit
peuple le superflu n’existe pas.
Seul l’essentiel compte et l’essentiel
c’est la survie de la diversité.
Understand the Nature of things,
it is accepting their necessity
and the way they fit
in the great loop of Life.
In the immense universe of the little one
people the superfluous does not exist.
Only the essential matters and the essential
it is the survival of diversity.
Night photography is something I love to do!
This photo was taken just before the swans (who normally swim in the canals of Bruges) were released after the compulsory agitation imposed by Europe for avian flu.
It was strange to walk in Bruges without the swans. Fortunately, the 120 swans have been released again. I wanted to demonstrate this with this photo.
Bruges has about 100 bridges in the style you see in the picture! The great thing about it is that almost every bridge is lit up at night. You just walked through a fairytale town!
This is the story of Vika, our one-eyed cat! Not a regular cat, she had a bad start in life. Found on the road near her dead mother, with a terrible wounded eye.Probably she was used a a toy by a dog. She was transported to a veterinary and he could only remove her eye. She was brought to a animalshelter, and when she recovered, she came on the website. Nobody wanted her, because she was " damaged" and black! I found her and liked her immediately ( I love every cat) and we decided to have her live with us.She was 8 weeks old, anxious and scared. Now, 10 years later, she is the most wonderful cat there is.. She is a beauty, deep black, soft and gentle. We even do not see the eye missing. She plays, jumps, and is happy in the garden. She cannot see depth, so she does not trust herself outside in the street.
She hates the camera; when she sees me coming, she runs..Or..she puts her nose against the lens, to avoid taking a picture...
