PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This year I had only a short holiday in Brittany, end of August and already almost empty beaches. On a sunny afternoon, I took out for the first time my newly acquired Holga. I also had my digital camera with me, which stayed in its bag.

It was fun, I could not care less if I would miss pictures because of the Holga. I did not pay attention to holding it still or whatever, just clicking away. I was amazed as how I could let go. There's nothing special happening on the beach, and very little PP as I find the mood is the way I saw and felt it. From this resort, St. Cast-le-Guildo, I have only this one color roll, Fujicolor Pro 400ISO, the others are in b/w and not yet developed. Know what ? I am in love with my Holga. And love is blind :-)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The four seasons.

"Nature" is what we see 
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse—the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.

Emily Dickinson

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

On the "usual places" in my town and a couple of others. What I call my "little tour", streets, cafés, shops, parks, buses and subway, and the people I see on this route.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
This will be a very short project. During a weekend in a tiny village in the Belgian Ardennes, there was a bonfire to celebrate the end of the winter.
But somehow the fire never really caught and stayed very dim (too wet, wood too compact, the "experts" diverged).
So the light also was not at all as expected, very dim and the mood on the slower side too. And there I was with my 40D, 1250 ISO and max. aperture 2.8...(this of course makes me want so much to upgrade...).

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The sea in colors, for me the project "Beloved sea" is a whole, 1 for b/w - blurs, 2 for b/w more classic and 3 for colors. The places are long time favorites of mine and a source of recurring joy and relaxation.
So far all the photographs presented in the series have been taken on four different days only, in France and Belgium.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

I have a love/hate relationship with this town. Came to live in it 20 years ago, to work for "Europe". Well. It is often ugly, in ways of modern architecture. It's not romantic like Paris, exotic like London.  But it has some charm, a couple lovely spots, lots of green spaces, people from everywhere.  Some of it you may find here, taken in slow motion, as if to go against the ongoing rush of town life.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
A second part for the same theme, the "beloved sea".   A different mood, some colors, moments that attracted my attention, the simple pleasures, the time when one listens to the waves, the seagulls.
Mostly still the North Sea, as this year wasn't good for travelling alas...

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The moments of "almost nothingness" (hence my icelandic nickname : njosnavelin)  that I encountered by the North Sea last year:  a light, a mood, whateve was there, I perceive it as a whole.  Looking at things with a tender eye, feeling rather than thinking, no plans, letting go.
The night photographs were all taken the same evening during a stroll in Fécamp, Normandy, handheld.

Epistle to the Birds of this Coast

You gulls who know this coast
from the Aber Wrac'h to the Seven Islands
you of the red-tipped beaks
you sterns and kittiwakes
you oyster-catchers
you band of ghoslty herons still holding out on the Ile Millau
(I see you in the evening over the pine wood grey-blue in the blue)
this is just to say I'm glad
and grateful that you're there
because if you weren't
if you were all gone
that would mean the others had won
the advancing ones
the constructive ones with their crazy beliefs
and their lousy ideologies
 their oil-slicks and their nuclear garbage
their noises and their nuisances
(they don't know how to walk the coast
they have to have all kinds of games and animations
 they don't even know what they've lost)
so please keep on using the sky
as you know how
riding the wind with your eyes wide open t
racing out the shoreline 
and throw out a cry or two
now and then for those of us down here who care
 that'll be a kind of reminder
(to accompany the signs
we read silent in the stone):
way beyond the heart's house
right into the bone.
