Inspiring people

I don't really remember when or why I discovered, but I do know that I love it from the first moment. It was at the beginning of december, I was boringly surfing the net, somehow hit, where I adjusted my searching filters to photography and glassy-eyed stared through all the thumbnails. My eye got caught on the thumbnail of the following project: "Rainbow Gathering" by Benoit Paillé.

In this project Benoit shows the pictures he made of his family, his brothers and sisters. He has been going to rainbow gatherings for 7 years now, and he has taken pictures of it for the past 3 years.

Rainbow Gatherings are temporary intentional communities, typically held in outdoor settings, and espousing and practicing ideals of peace, love, harmony, freedom and community, as a consciously expressed alternative to mainstream popular culture, consumerism, capitalism and mass media.


I love the way Benoit shows us the beauty and pureness of these inspiring people.

Ruven Afanador

Look what I found! Isn't it lovely?
I very much like the mysterious colours. The pictures have obviously undergone some photo shopping, but which effects Ruven used, I don't know. I'll be trying to get this effect into some of my photo's, but how it will work out.. who knows?
All my credits go to Art Department, who brought me to Ruven Afanador. Visit art-dept, it's so worth it!

Autumn Part III

Sorry guys, I kept you waiting. My last post is already a big week ago, and that's unacceptable :) From now on I will have more time, because school isn't absorbing as much time as it did before. Oh and time flies! As I posted autumn pictures last week, it now feels like winter is very close. In this post I will show you some delayed pictures of autumn. xx

Autumn part I

As I said two posts ago, I love the warm colour scale autumn gives us. The following photographs will hopefully show you the beauty of autumn. Enjoy!

Rotterdam central station

Hello my lovely visitors,

I have recently visited Rotterdam and I really enjoyed the city. Contrary to some other cities the people are very kind. In this post: a picture of the central station. This is where my trip began and ended. The station is now being renovated like many other train-stations in the Netherlands. I am curious about what it will look like in the future.

last days of summer

As the title says, these pictures are taken at the end of summer.
On this exact moment, summer has already ended.
And clear signs of summer have already disappeared. Autumn has started some weeks ago,
and that's fine.Just fine, because I definitely prefer summer.
But it shouldn't be left unsaid that I also like autumn.
This has a main, selfish reason. Which is, that it is my birthday in Autumn.
I was seventeen yesterday, so I'll post some pictures of that soon.
The other reason why I like autumn is that the colours of all the leaves are so beautiful.
I really like the gradients, and the warm colour scale..

Yesterday I went to Amsterdam with school. We weren't obliged to go there, but because Amsterdam is my favourite city I directly signed in. I love Amsterdam because of it's multi-culturality, the freedom and the kindness of the people there. It is always cozy on The Dam Square, there very often are new groups or performers trying to breakthrough, gather name recognition and gather some money. So you always see new, spectacular, talented , good, or bad, performances. That's why I spent my whole evening there. I spent my afternoon enjoying the sun on a small grass field at Rembrandtplein, have had a lovely relaxing time! I always feel very well when I return home from an Amsterdam trip, same for yesterday, it was marvellous! xx

Devon and light

Hi! With the speed of light I am trying to show you how Exeter looks like at the end of the day. The lighthouse of Plymouth is in the first picture and looks quite vintage with the ferris wheel in the back. The other pictures show you the beauty of the Exeter Quayside.
There was a lovely restaurant called Waterfront (the restaurant with the mint coloured shutters in photo no. 3) where I ate pizza two times. It was affordable and the view over Exeter's Quay was amazing! There were people windsurfing and little children playing in the waterfall, picture no. 6. I was so jealous of them being able to enjoy the water of Exeter's Quay. I myself tried kayaking over there, it was so nice! Take care! ♥
