So wonderful! Why?


Garenmarkt - Leiden, 5-12-2006

Taking pictures is so wonderful.
Why?
To show I have "been there".
To safeguard a memory as nicely as possible.
Then slowly pictures started to be photographs, keeping in mind Ansel Adams:
"I saw many pictures, but no photographs" and he went home without making a single exposure.

Photographs.

Of what? Why?
What is driving me?
What am I trying to say?
What are my themes?
What moves me?
Questions.

This blog is about finding the answers.
In the end it could be about fear, primal fear, transitoriness, void, melancholy, tristesse, childlike exaltation, observing people.
