NMM

A while ago I visited the NMM (National Military Museum/ Nationaal Militair Museum, Soesterberg). It's a newly built museum with a lot of old military equipment and quite a few airplanes hanging from the ceiling. A huge building with a construction that has to carry a lot of weight, but it feels very open and light and it's really very beautiful.

HKLOS

Today almost everyone working in the 'Havenkwartier' (the harbor area that houses a lot of creative companies, artists etc. in Deventer) opened their doors to the public.

//

Vandaag was HKLOS- oftewel, (bijna) alles en iedereen in het Havenkwartier had z'n deuren open. Een mix van open ateliers, de achtbaan ervaren middels een 3D-bril, muziek, wijn proeven van La Bottega in de Bella Macchina garage, een Space Cowboys barbecue, DAVO bier, snuffelen in de kringloopwinkel, de Lucy Cube van binnen bekijken, workshops volgen, informatie over zelf bouwen in het Havenkwartier opvragen, de smid aan het werk zien en de smalle trapjes van de Zwarte Silo beklimmen.
Voor de kinderen was er de beste (onbedoelde) zandbak ooit.

over there

I visited a friend in The Hague and decided I'd take the 14mm (21mm at 35mm or 'full frame') out for a street photography test drive. It's pretty wide and because of my usual architectural work I can't stomach the look of 'keystoned buildings', so I thought it was going to be a bit of a challenge for me, trying to keep both the actual street scene and the background in balance in my shots. It worked out well though. The building in the first shot isn't perfectly straight, but it's not making me seasick either- and of course, it's not the subject of the photo.

If I had shot the second one with a standard lens like a 50mm, I wouldn't have been able to show so much of the man's environment, which was what draw me in in the first place.

So for now I have to conclude, I actually like this 14mm for street shots.  Who would have thought?

stedelijk

2013-v-ardini-stedelijk-roltrap.jpg

We visited the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) today. I was particularly impressed with Kudo Tetsumi's work ('Cultivation by Radio-activity in the Electronic Circuit'), Yayoi Kusama's boat sculpture ('Aggregation') and with the sound installation in this staircase- which you really need to go and experience for yourself, so I'm only showing you a picture of the staircase.

~I have to admit- I don't remember the name of the artist, if it was in fact stated anywhere. I found two different blogs attributing it to two different artists, so I decided not to add to the confusion as well.

rondeel 'goud in handen'

For the exhibition 'Goud in handen' ('goud' means 'gold', 'handen' means 'hands') at Architecture Centre Rondeel (Deventer) I made a small series of photos of historic buildings with renovated shop exteriors.
