week 18 | 2011

Content wise this was a far more interesting week. As a result I am in fact somewhat pleased with some of the photographs I took in week 18. I also start to get really familiar with the Panasonic GF1, even though the user interface isn’t in the same league as for instance the Ricoh GRDIII. And I find it fascinating how many discovered this little Ricoh fella recently. Absolutely awesome. From this set the last one is in fact again with the GRDIII.

I don’t live in a large city, but this set shows what is possible in a smaller town when everything comes together. That is mood, opportunities, and a flow. Since I am familiar with the camera I find that pretty irrelevant. That might not be anyone’s case, but sure is mine. And despite learning my things with color photography I decided to go back to black & white this week. Partly because of mood, but also because I can much easier interpret the eventual outcome which I still prefer. I still miss that connection with color. Doing color photographs and my photograph a day project actually forces me to share my ongoing search with you which isn’t always easy for me. Sort of vulnerability. Usually photographers are good at sharing their best work. It makes everything looks easy.

Some of the photographs this week were more event driven like the photograph below at a small fair in an eastern province of the Netherlands or the fifth photograph at Liberation day with many war veterans, including some sturdy Belgium veterans.

I really want to thank those supporting my blog financially with their Amazon.com purchases. And I wish all readers good light for the upcoming new week.

The photographs of this ongoing project will also be updated here.
