Strandbeesten prt1

Strandbeesten prt1 | SONY A7 | Zeiss Makro-Planar 50mm. f/2 ZF.2 | 1/100 | F? | ISO 400

A few Saturdays ago I went to the former Electricity-Factory in the Hague, to see the ‘Strandbeesten’-exhibition. These ‘Strandbeesten’ (‘Beach-Animals’) are a creation of artist Theo Jansen. For many years he is busy to design ‘new life-forms’; creatures, made of PVC-electricity-tubes, that can walk over the beach; driven by the wind. It is great to see them move (go to: http://www.strandbeest.com/). On the ground-floor of the Electricity-Factory the newest Strandbeest-creation was tested; and this Saturday (third of May) it was ‘set-free’ on the ‘Zuiderstrand’. A parade of enthusiasts carried the beast from the Factory to the Beach.

Commemoration Day prt3

Commemoration Day prt3 | Konica Minolta Dynax 7D | Sigma 70-300mm. | 420mm. | 1/90 | F8 | ISO 800

Today we have Commemoration Day overhere. At 20:00 hours we will be silent for two minutes and think of those who died in the 2nd Worldwar; in the fight against fascism and racism.

Commemoration Day prt2

Commemoration Day prt2 | Panasonic GF2 | Lumix 7-14mm.| 14mm. | 1/100 | F4 | ISO 100

Today we have Commemoration Day overhere. At 20:00 hours we will be silent for two minutes and think of those who died in the 2nd Worldwar; in the fight against fascism and racism. Still needed, according to some writings. (The carving in the tree says: “Joden moet dood”; translated straight that would be: “Jews should dead”. No proper grammar in both cases; which says a lot about the carvers origins. Kind of a reminder of the forces that caused the holocaust.)

Today we have Commemoration Day overhere. At 20:00 hours we will be silent for two minutes and think of those who died in the 2nd Worldwar; in the fight against fascism and racism. Still needed, according to some writings. (The text says: “Kanker (cancer) Joden (Jews)”. Kind of a reminder of the forces that caused the holocaust.)
