June 13, 2009

This happened to me the other day. I was walking on a shopping street in Rotterdam with a friend when we look to our left where we see a group of perhaps 20 people. 2 of these people where holding massive video cameras a few more had microphones, it looked like some of the people from there where with the press, then you had about 3 or more bodyguards and in the center of all this mess was a tall middle aged blond haired guy.

Blast into the past – Italy

June 9, 2009

As terrible as it might, and probably is sounding as my first blog post is going to be of a series that I’m going to call blast into the past. Anyone who has taken photographs for a long amount of time or is simply very passionate about photography will have tens¬† of thousands of photographs in their archives, many probably into the hundreds of thousands. With all of these photographs its hard to remember exactly what shots you’ve taken over the past years and for whatever reason you’ll probably have a quick peak at your old photographs. Every once in a while you rediscover a shot that you had taken then and thought wow this one is really good how on earth did i manage to pass this one up. Personally I’ve just been reorganizing all of my files adding taggs and what not to them and every once in a while i passed up an image which i really liked and for some reason or another seemed to have passed up. This series of blogs will cover and showcase those images and I’ll tell you a little bit about them if i can still remember what was going on at the time.¬† The first few in this series will be a quick flashback to recent vacations I’ve had, later it will be single images.

For the first post i figured it would be fitting to look at the Italy trip that launched my interest in photography
