This weekend we went to a beachvolleybal-tournament on Ameland, one of the Wadden-islands. I'd never been there before and it was absolutely beautifull. Our camping-spot had an excellent view over the heather-fields. We've even seen some seals on our boat-ride back to the mainland! Very very nice. I'll be back next year, definitely!

It's finally finished! A cool new hat for a cool little guy. My colleague Menno got his 4th (!!) son recently. I decided I wanted to make the little one some head-gear (because even in summer it can get really cold with the wind and rain in the Netherlands). Congratulations Menno and Liane! Hopefully this hat will actually stay on (contrary to the socks) ;)

This weekend we went to the Photo Festival Naarden. I really want to advertise a bit for this festival, because both the town of Naarden as the festival itself really deserve it. FFN is a sort of open air museum, wich exhibits photographs of both famous and less known photographers. The theme this year is 'Let's face it' and is all about portraits. There's a lot of exceptionally beautiful, intriguing and inspirational material. I'd like to point out some of my favourites:
Martin Roemers 'Eyes of War' ; Koos Breukel ; Joost van den Broek ; Stephan vanfleteren, his portraits are incredibly strong ; Marie Cécile Thijs 'Cooks', her website also shows other impressive stuff ; Mike Roelofs 'Resilience' has powerfull images of the Roma ; Caren Huygelen's 'Master of Science' is very nice and recognisable, me being a former TU Delft student!
Also the work of former students from the Photoacademie shown in Galerie de Lage Flank has some highlights, of which I unfortunately do not remember the names.
The Photo Festival is open 'till the 19th of June, so Dutchies and photography-lovers, you still have a chance to go and see some of our most gifted artists at work!
