Waterslide – Heading the elements

What to do when it is mid summer, and you long back to the snow and the boards?
Then create a new sport.
Call it Waterslide
–> this is waterslide according to wikipedia <–


Build a platform,  get some snow, a bit of water

And a few people that like the fun.

The audience comes from nature

And some photographers find their way for some spectacular splash shots.

Over the borderline Venlo

Just over the border with Germany, in the Netherlands, is Venlo situated.  A town with approximately 100.000 inhabitants.

It is a borderplace between Germany and the Netherlands, traditional the Germans came there to catch up the dutch bargains, such as coffee and ehmm, some other items that the Netherlands (still) are famous for.

The river Maas is flooding through the city and the last few years the city has been rennovated.

The city is a mixture between the old historical buildings and the modern architecture.

The inner city is a mixture of old and new.

One of the finest things (still) to do is street art. We spent some time sitting and drinking our coffee, watching the people passing us. Very intresting and fascinating.

Krefelder Zoo


Zoo photography.

I always think it is a bit sad,  to photograph locked up animals.

It is different when you see the animals having a  good time

A wonderful day at the zoo with Hans Georg Bender

Enjoy the pictures

The advantages of going for a photo shoot with colleague photographers is that you can exchange photos. And when you are lucky, like I was this time,  you can even taste the luxuruy of using the ‚at my wishlist‘ lense,

This is the  amazing result., with my ’starter camera‘

Why do I love street photography?

Pfosten deko 0875

Because it is real

Because it is unreal

Sometimes it even moves


2016-06-11 22.58.13

Because it is human

Because it is work (or not working at all)

Because it is everywhere
