NatoGameOver!!

Sunday afternoon was a big day for ‘vredesactie‘ belgium. They organized a peace action in which they tried to enter the private domains of the NATO to -symbolically- close it for once and ever. About 1000 people  went to the NATO headquarters in Brussels  to take part in the international non violent action NATO GAME OVER. 500 activists were arrested only 2 succeeded in entering the NATO. Nevertheless, they their point!

I attended a playfull parade in which the funeral of the NATO was ‘celebrated’. Literally!

Fire-Work

Recently I took some pictures of a welder in action.

I wanted to make use of the ambient light as much as possible because I wouldn’t lose the “action” of the welding.

I like the blue light & the blue colors combined with the yelowish sunlight in the color picture. However, I realy wanted to post a black&white version of an other shot aswell.

These two, walking along the quay dragged my attention. I was touched by their resemblances.
For instance their corresponding color palette. 
Both walking in the same rhythm, connected by the dog lead…


 



Contrasts on the street

Yesterday, for the first time I tasted  of a ‘new branch of photography’,  for me at least. I took my D50 and went to a nearby city, called ‘Mechelen’,  in search for something interesting to shoot on the streets’; ‘STREET PHOTOGRAPHY’. At the moment a very popular branch of photograhy (in Belgian blogland 🙂 ). For example, the blog of  the young, but very promising photographer Arthur Eranosian is worth a visit. The blog is in dutch, but the pictures (e.g. here ) speak for themselves!!

Enough talking for now,
walking the streets I had to keep an eye open for “extreme contrasts” and “antagonisms” which I could put together in one single  picture. (a task for school)

By hazard, the three situations I picked involved some bikes…
take a look and tell me if  you can find the contrasts!
