90

with one comment

While digging through my archives I found these photos I took about two and a half years ago at my great uncle’s 90th birthday. I still like the series so I thought I’d put them up here. It was a lovely day with my extended family and some regional quirks.

IMG_1018blogYep, got caught.

IMG_1019blogMy great uncle is very fond of music and helped founding the first music school in the area. He also always was very involved in the local brass band. I don’t know about your area, but where I come from every village has their own brass band. So the local brass band dropped by for a birthday serenade. My great uncle discussing the set with the bandmaster.

IMG_1051blogMy great uncle believes in the importance of kids getting in contact with music, so he was very happy about all the kids in the brass band.

IMG_1060blogI’m repeating myself – brass bands!

IMG_1065blogOne last speech (it was a very short one), and then food.

Hotels III

leave a comment »

I thought it was time for another entry. December saw me travelling a lot, so my collection of pictures for my Hotels series grew some.

It’s a random collection of my favourite shots – favourite means anything from favourite hotel, favourite memory, favourite shot, favourite representation of how that particular room made me feel, basically a really personal selection. Not meant to look nice or show how the rooms really looked.

Hotels

with 5 comments

My job includes a fair amount of travelling. Some time ago I started taking pictures in every hotel I stayed in. Usually these pictures are  taken with Hipstamatic/Polarize/Lo-Mob/Plastic Bullet apps for iPhone. I don’t take these pictures to show how the rooms/views actually look like, it’s more about how these rooms and places make me feel or how they look to me when viewing the room from my bed or looking out of the window. So in this entry I will show you a small selection of my hotel pictures – hotel rooms, views out of the window, reflections…
