The Year of the Rooster

A quiet winter, except maybe for it’s cold ending. For some reason only pictures from my neighbourhood in Amsterdam, commuting stations and from my office. Find the picture with the IJsselmeer frozen over…

Winter ’17/18

City of Marrakech, city of soeks, medina, Koutabia and smog. Where horses and donkeys are still forms of motorisation. Great food, splendid palaces and annoying merchants. Go there yourself if you can…  


The Ourika Valley is just half an hour drive from the city of Marrakech in Morocco. Although the travel guides say this valley is relatively unspoiled, this only counts for the Atlas mountains around, not the villages. They are very spoiled, but also very colourful!

The last months I haven’t posted many new pictures. I have a new job, and not much time left after travel to make many pictures. Therefore some pictures from my new office building, and the view from it.  

New Job, New Tower

Sometimes one thinks; why don’t we spend the weekend in Rotterdam? It really isn’t such a bad city. But why does it always rain there?

May days in South Limburg are perfect for a little walking trip. Little rivers, valleys, castles, water mills, ancient churches, it’s all there in walking distance from Valkenburg.

Yesterday people interested could take a peak preview of the art work in the new metro Station Rokin in Amsterdam. The items on the walls represent things found while digging out the station. Oddly satisfying to see an upside down duck, or a (stoned?) upside down shrimp.

I made the same pictures last year, but on April 10. So the blossom is almost three weeks earlier! Climate change is horrible and destructive, but this is a nice present today…
