The wait is over

2009, Photography

Break through by Wouter Brandsma
… Or better yet, my little break is over. I spent two weeks with my family in the province of Drenthe in the Netherlands. This province is famous for the anual MotoGP TT Assen races, large megaliths, and will be the host for the start of the cycling Tour of Spain, la Vuelta this year.

Although I had no particular projects in mind for photography I took two cameras with me, my Ricoh GX200 and the Sigma DP1. Although the images of the DP1 have a very intriguing look, which I really like, I used the GX200 for the most instead. The Ricoh is just more convenient, faster, and easier to use. The DP1 is fine when you are in the mood for it, and the action is not fast paced.

In the end my photography ranged from some street to landscape photography. In between there was some time for more cows (could be a theme) and megaliths. It was still liberating though. I wanted to capture life, all real and not always pretty (see the first photograph of this series). More importantly I was able to read four books and really come to rest.

And I do hope that you, readers, had a great vacation too, or will have so very soon. And thank you all for your comments while I was away.

And the month August will be very interesting I think. I completely missed the announcement of the new Ricoh GR Digital III. It came as a full suprise! In case you haven’t already read the information about this camera, you can read it here.

  1. Hello Wouter,

    welcome back from having break. Good to see your pictures and read the text.
    Tomorrow i go back to Tuscany for a few days and hopefully bring back interesting and creative impressions. This week i shot some photos with my oly and a so called, subjective-lens. A nice experience.

    All the best, titus

    1. The old lady was placed almost unnoticed. It must be hard to be treated that way. It is even harsher that people don’t realize doing it.

      Hope you do well with your arm.

  2. I am glad you had a relaxing vacation and I look forward to looking at the objects and subjects you captured. Have a great weekend – John

  3. Good to see you are back and that you had a nice break.
    You posted a nice set of images but the first one is your best here, very raw and real.

    What do you think of the GRD III specs so far? I think you will like it and it will suit your style.

    1. I guess that is the best description for the first photograph: “raw and real”. Thank you man.

      I look forward testing the GRD III and I am curious about your impressions of the camera.
