Changing city

What was once the old harbor of Amsterdam is now a very appreciated living area also with a lot of other ships than in older days.
Old harbor workers wouldn't recognize it.
With all those new buildings.
Yes cities change.

Art fence

Bridge nr. 165 also called the "Raampoort" bridge in Amsterdam contains this fence, looking more like an artwork. Until now I couldn't find the name of the designer of this fence. One for good fences here.

Tribute to the elderly in our society.

Further to my post yesterday the outdoor exhibition of pets at the end of the run track.
The posters are a tribute to the elderly in our society. Because they have so much to contribute to society. For instance by watching the pets of busy owners. The elderly are on photo on the other side of the stands and I show you only some pets they watched.
You only have to look at the dark eyes of Kyra (10) and you melt. 
Photographer Nico Kroon.
Chippie (21) doing what comes to her and is a real hedonist.
Photographer Sacha de Boer.
Anka (13) thinks she is still a puppy and is always disappointed if her body contradicts that.
Photographer Sander Troelstra.
I dedicate this post to Our World Tuesday here.

Horizontal mural

A painted running track for 60 meters in front of Amsterdam town hall. Also strange it ends with a photo stand on a block concrete with a picture of a dog from an open air exhibition of house pets. Is it art or something else, I don't know but the shadow of a lantern plays a nice role here. One for Monday Mural here.

Like the old days

After scanning those negatives from 1967 I thought how nice it would be to make some new photo's with that creamy silk appearance again. In a cupboard on the attic I grabbed an old Rolleicord and put in some film from ilford. How about the blossom of this apple tree (cropped). Indeed the effect I was looking for.

I was forgotten to always use a lens hood but I am still pleased with this selfie result.
I think that for some occasions I am going to use that old film camera again. It is also nice to have to wait 2 weeks before you see a result and to only have 12 photo's to think about instead of the endless stream of digital.

Residence of an artist

Behind these two horses is the studio of Saskia Pfaeltzer. A very talented artist in ceramic work. I wanted to make a photo when the lady took a seat and she didn't mind but has nothing to do with the studio, just wanted to sit down. One for monday murals here.
