At the Lake of Banyoles


Some six months ago I posted this photo of a man reading at the Lake of Banyoles (Catalonia). My husband and I have always been in love with this lake and the small historic town alongside it.

And suddenly there was this superb, affordable flat that has a view on the lake. We discussed it for two days, but in our hearts already knew that we wanted to go and have a look at the house.

To make a long story short: we are going to move to Banyoles. This means we have hectic weeks ahead, so posting will not be one of my priorities for the next two months. But I will be back with more street photos showing what life is like in this terrific spot. Then picture me reading on a bench next to the lake!

Cinema reflections


As I love going to the movies, I am often found in an industrial and office area of Rotterdam that in itself is not especially interesting for street photographers.

Yet for me this is a strong incentive to take my camera and try and capture some pictures with people in these for me not very attractive surroundings.

This girl was waiting for the cinema to open and apparently looking for something in her purse. The glass façade reflecting the parked bicycles and the buildings at the other side of the street persuaded me to take this photo.
