on her way

February 2014, Amsterdam, Leidseplein (Stadsschouwburg).

The moment I took this picture, I was trying out my iPhone settings with my Instant 110 app. Suddenly this girl appeared. I think I was hit by her mood and the fact she was walking around, alone, Only after I had made the picture, I discovered the classic’ (modern?) camera around her neck. Maybe something I unconscious already had listed before. Hope she had a good journey.

after the show

April 2014.

I met this guy and his rockband in the intercity between Amsterdam and Utrecht. I was impressed by the way the band took all there instruments and stuff by train: they were lugging themselves many large black boxes. The band – I don’t know the name – was on European tour.

The traces of an intensive existence were palpable and smelly in the coupé that was almost entirely filled with the band. At half past five in the afternoon, I suddenly was no more than a spectator in a-apart from the roady-riven in deep sleep, almost all of them black-clad rockers. A woman and four men.

I could not resist to take a picture with my iPhone and my favourite Instant 110 app and try to express a small bit of this all.

the artist

Travalgar Square, London, 2013.
Although I do not like to photograph street artists that much, I couldn’t stand this. Als because it seemed that only we and this man were there. Plus: this street artist disappeared as fast as he came, it took all about only 5 minutes.
