and last but not ..... welcome home, M.! w.N.!



september 10-
rara, waar ben ik? / where am I?






...in front of the Oostkerk ('East church') of course





anno 1656



(and famous for a skeleton above the door)






at the end of a work day





so much to see!






ingang is dutch for entrance
due to corona measures, there was only 1 way in and 1 way out. but you couldn't just walk in
unless you had a reservation.

entrance fee was E 7.50. always interested, but too pricey for me.
(while on a diet again: water + coffee! such poverty
...says the one who had just purchased a Carl Zeiss 24-70... )



































a glimpse of the exhibition...



(someone excercising in front of the tele during lock down?
-my wild guess-)






the man on the right had so much to tell about this church. "it started out as a Roman-Catholic church", he said and much, much more.
very interesting (but unfortunally not true). the man on the left learned a lot of new facts ...and so did I. ;)

I know that place (from my first DM in 2017)

Without the ugly banners


I went to the World Press exhibition last year in Alkmaar, where it was for free.
Not sure if I would spend 7,50 for a next occasion though.

Yeah, that exhibition has been annually also at Sanoma House[1] in Helsinki and with free entry, although this year for the obvious reasons there was no exhibition.

[1] Large glass building hosting HQ of Sanoma Corporation and offices of its main publications Helsingin Sanomat (the biggest newspaper in Finland) and Ilta-Sanomat (a tabloid newspaper) etc. So quite a contrast to that old church.

A cracking shot Ine. I'd try to crop out that ugly banner and slightly (not all) correct the perspective distortion and you have a great shot.
Respect. Observe. Capture. Enjoy.

walking on sunshine (woooah ;))




why does everyone keep saying those banners were ugly?

THX guys! a beauty shot, Fred! and a tricky one indeed, that huge building surrounded by Middelburg. challenging to (try to -my case-) tame the lines!
(what do Dyxumers do when they gather on a sunday? they go the church! we did 4 that particular day + a cloister. ;)).
perhaps the E 7.50 was for the people who 'had to' coordinate everything under 'these circumstances'.

asked someone who came out if she enjoyed the exhibition and she said it didn't cheer her up.
(I happen to have mixed feelings about WP pics -in general- as well. as impressive as some of them may be, I don't consider blood stained/bloody pics, or pics exposing other misery, to be uplifting. praise to the photographers and hats off to the ones literally risking their lives -and still come up with the most brilliant pics to show to the world, despite all!-, ...just can't say I'm drawn to this kind of photography enough to want to study the details).





WOW, TYSM Michele! pers. I wouldn't consider it a cracker, not even a 'good' shot. had given up on lines, but you are so right!!
one shouldn't take snaps with a WA, out of control. while trying to catch a sun star. (she left in a hurry. seemed she worked there).


an attempt to tame the lines

Nice series Ine! I assume Antwerp is their port of call so we can see them passing here too.

A few recent ones from the port of Flushing:

1 Pilot P02


2 Holes and stripes


3 On the waterfront


4 Flotsam and jetsam


5 Vlissingen


all with a7riv + Minolta AF 50mm 1:1.4 RS (powered by LA-EA5)
