The Photographica market for the last time for now

A few more random shots of the photo market of last sunday.

The guy on the right looks familiar to me.

Yes, this is someone I know

The wives of some dealers had sought their own entertainment.

Sign of the times ?

Last sunday I saw this trolley passing by on the photographical market in Doesburg.
I wonder if the owner is clairvoyant or that the trolley maker is simply a bad pessimist.
It does fit today. One for sign, signs here.

Driving home

Driving home along the dike. Always learned that you must have your attention on the road and don't do something else let alone use a camera. Couldn't resist here but don't make a habit of it. One for our world tuesday here.

Photographica market

Yesterday we had the nice open air photographical market in Doesburg. Also thanks to the weather it was a big succes and to the dumping of equipment of course.

Looking for that piece you were still missing. Well he has tripods enough now.

Some people were really heavy loaded. Something that I try to prevent at all cost. But these were buyers for secameras.co.uk.

Sometimes you even met a famous photographer as here Ben v. Eck with his first professional camera (a leica from 1931). He himself is from 1936 and still uses it for special occasions.

Yes a remarkable market indeed.

That sunday feeling again.

This photo reminds me strongly on another banks photo called Sunday on the banks of the river Seine from HCB. Its the Y of course. Very appropriate for Sunday.

Sail 2015 (2)

The sky had that special 17th century painters quality for which holland is famous.

If you liked you could make a fly over with an old dakota. At home I saw that the propellors stood still but afterwards it seems that a shutter time of 1/4000 is enough to stop them.

Yes everything that could float was floating . Shot taken from the ferry, normally a 5 min trip with a waiting time of 7 min, but now more then 1½ hour waiting and crossing. One for skywatch friday here.

Sail 2015

Yesterday we had our one in a 5 years sail in of Sail. The biggest maritieme manifestation of Europe. In a parade of 12 km big tallships and other interesting vessels sail into the amsterdam harbor from the North Sea to their boarding place were you can visit them until Sunday. As always the parade was opened by the dutch schooner "stad amsterdam".
This year a replica of the "Halve Maen", the ship build around 1606 and used by Henry Hudson for his expedition to North America, was also in the parade.
As was this Swedish giant " the Götheborg ".
Its all handwork so for handeling the sails you need a lot of crew not in possession of fear of heights. Think about this by a blowing gale.
There was also a lot to see on the water from boats who were from the visitors looking to the parade. For somewhat the same photo's you can also look at biebkriebels blog here.
