This is Javier. Harm and me went for some shelter and a beer, while the heavy rain was pouring down on the mountainsides. Javier is a musician. He has been ‘on the road’ for many years as a live performer/studio musician. Never the big mouth in the foreground; but the one in the back who could really play it all. He stopped the touring; got tired of the heavy life and the big ego’s. Now he has a small bar and brews his own beer. A light one and a brown one. Good beers! Things did not go well in his personal life lately. He has kind of a small studio and makes music all by himself and all for himself. And then he took his Ovation acoustic guitar and played a few of his songs. They were really his and went way deeper than all the recorded stuff. When we left, the sun was shining again.

… We jumped in the car and drove on, towards the light that moved away from us, faster than we could drive. (Too bad that it’s impossible to shoot a ‘People are Small’-selfie; ’cause this was quite an excellent moment for it. (for ‘People are Small’, watch in Categories)

The Postcard

The Postcard

In the afternoon of the 20th July, amigo Harm and me took a ride to what he called an ‘ancient oak-tree-wood’. You can wake me up any time for a target like that. The pubs in Aren were overcrowded, so we took the road to Aulas without our usual beer. The road went over a smaller mountainside in between two valleys. On the other side of the valleys the Pyrenees went up high and mighty. After a while we stopped and I started to shoot some ‘postcards’… Nature responded almost immediately: if you want it rough, you can get it rough.
