Photographing From Below
While in Amsterdam last April, I saw an installation by French artist Christian Boltanski at the Oude Kerk (“old church”), Amsterdam’s oldest building and oldest parish church which also functions as a venue for art events. I confess I was bit divided between admiring the message and somber beauty of the exhibition and feeling a bit creeped out by the dark setting, the whispers, and the “statues” that would ask questions when you walked by them. The first time I passed by one it asked me: “Tell me, what is death like?” Scared the hell out of me! So, what do you think?
Bruges (Brugge in Dutch) is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in Belgium. The medieval center of Bruges, which is very well preserved, is a UNESCO world heritage site. I loved the architecture, the beautiful canals and their surroundings, and the overall atmosphere of the place. Bruges became a lot more well known after the 2008 film “In Bruges,” from Irish-British director Martin McDonagh, which is set almost entirely there. I saw it back then and have ever since wanted to see the real thing, which finally happened this past April. Here are some highlights of beautiful Brugge.

Sense of Place – For this week’s challenge, Variations on a Theme, I’ve chosen to show the same place, Venice Beach, from different points of view.
Less is not enough.
And then I stop and sit and eat.
Jy is wat jy dink - nie wat jy dink jy is nie. Dit help soms om hardop te lag vir wat jy dink of dink jy is.
