little techno .. i found the camera settings on my mobile phone and it turns out the asa speed value is something you can fix to a non automatic value .. i like it and i put the default to 100 .. the shadowy houses in this renovation project pic have something edgy now that would have been blurred in color noise - considerring the poor light - on a automatically defined higher filmspeed value

this afternoon i had a course in a building with a terrace where the view on the city looked like this .. the church in the foreground is called Mozes en Aaronkerk .. the two connected towers to the left is de Nederlandse Bank, the central dutch bank .. oh and not to forget the clouds in the sky are the clouds in the sky

Tshirt design .. men shaking off evolution .. i wonder if thats a blessing or a curse

one could say by trying to get rid of our animal past we can go for the human condition and develop a society based on reason, meaning and art - civilisation that is. On the other hand one may say .. by getting rid off the monkey in us we delude ourselves and create problems that excede any problem of animalistic survival and hierarchy by far .. alienation, nihilism, kaderdiscipline, sociopsychopathologie

stop following me .. is not a motto that seems to bring you lot of friends on Twitter

they put some flavour to the sausage and call it catelan sausage .. i have been to catelonia few times but cannot remember having eaten sausage there so i cannot tell if the sausage tastes catalan or not .. which would be different when i would have eaten paella tonight but that was not the case so this remark is rather pretty pointless

Gagged and gallowed master Rembrandt is removed from his sokkel to make way for the renovation of the Rembrandtplein.

The guys who did the job rumoured they found some old documents inside the sokkel.

En iemand anders bedacht ter plaatse een nieuwe zegswijze: van z'n sokkel tillen = oplichten

the car pulled over .. the band jumped right on its hood and started playing Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis tunes. People on the sidewalk were having drinks and dinner and started tapping feet and swinging hips immediately.

"Hi we're Johnny and The Gangsters of Love and we got the police on our track so we'll play until they show up .. oh and we are out of petrol so maybe you can spare a coin."

From "Wiplala" written by Annie M.G. Schmidt, illustrated by Jenny Dalenoord, Holland, 1958.

Annie M.G. Schmidt is and has been a very popular writer in Holland for generations .. her most popular books are on Jip en Janneke a neighbouring boy and girl that research and contemplate their surroundings .. the illustrator that got famous with illustrating the books of Annie M.G. Schmidt is Fiep Westendorp instead of Jenny Dalenoord that made the illustration here. The art of Fiep is silhouetty like Jennys but tighter

i am in a (slow) drift of rereading books i read when i was a kid .. this is a part of the cover of Stijd om een rendierkudde (Lapland Outlaw) from Arthur Catherall .. the cover drawing is from Reint de Jonge

+ i am experimenting with RAW pictures and this picture lost all its red in the Flickr conversion

+ i converted the colorprofile in PS from CMYK to RGB (edit/convert to profile ...) replaced the pic and now the reds are back

definetely should read on that too
