When you’re mellow and comfortable you take the things you feel and see differently. It can take the stress out your images. Life is grant.
It makes you aware that so much can be framed.
That you don’t need to see everything to understand what you’re seeing. Light and shadows can be so powerful.
It even can bring you in a nostalgic mood again. Although the scenery in the Dutch city of Utrecht is quite nostalgic too. The city known for the peace and friendship treaties of Utrecht from 1713 that helped end the war against Spain.
Reminds you too that you’re never alone on the street, always accompanied.
No matter how obsolete the place even looks like.
In two weeks I try to post my impressions of the Ricoh GR. Also soon I will post a series of photographs I took at the former industrial complex Zollverein in Germany. I posted a teaser on Flickr.
