Exposure

Ofcourse we are here to show our photos, but how many of you are here for the big bucks? I'm not btw, but I do get jealous when I see some photographers with loads of exposure. I wonder how they do that, besides the obvious beautiful photos ofcourse :)This is one of my personal favourites, taken during my trip through China.  continue reading

Streetfood in China

 I love food. Especially food from other countries. So whenever I travel, I try to taste something new. Ofcourse in China, the country of my wife, I skipped the grasshoppers and sharks on a stick.

Grasshopper and snake I did try in the end though and to my suprise they weren't bad at all, but the steamed buns stay my absolute favorite. So what is your favorite streetfoodO, and it can be crowded in China :)  continue reading

It's called The Windhound and it's still used for preparing flour.Enjoy. continue reading

So, my first blog entry. Well my second, but the first one got eaten bu Chrome :)I am a photographer from The Netherlands. Well I am also a writer and illustrator, but more about that later on.
