So… Long time no update! Let’s catch up then :-)
In July, we had rain.
Rainy Sunday morning
Rainy Sunday afternoon
After the rain there was sun.
It stopped! (the rain)
At home, I left a thin slice of melon skin on top of a near empty wine glass. Eventually it curled up and fell in…
When July finally got really sunny and summery, I went to England, where it was … raining.
Well, not the first day, which had quite a few sunny spells, which I enjoyed while in a 5 hour traffic jam.
While it was raining outside, this really nice staircase in the museum of Liverpool was perfectly dry.
We also kept it dry on the ferry across the Mersey, where I took the following photo inside the corridor that leads to the ferry on the south side.
Of course by the time I landed in Amsterdam again, the summery weather had passed already.Typical ;-)
Arrival at Schiphol airport

In the first photo I see tree branches, but also a ‘net’ of ‘veins’. The second photo shows me a flower that’s got more light shining on it than its surroundings.
But … I wonder: what do you see in the third photo? ;-)

Recently, I posted this image on Streamzoo:
Then, I was “tagged” by someone with the challenge to post a ‘before and after’ photo – the original, and the edited version. Given that I prefer to stick to the square format, I resorted to doing two of these in one, so that with two originals and two edited ones, I’d be back in a square.
I have to say that I wasn’t really aware of how much I edited my photos until I put them side by side. Quite a difference I’d say :-)
This week came another challenge, to upload 3 versions of one image: the original, an edited version, and a black and white.
I chose an image I hadn’t used before, quickly edited it in Snapseed, and then wondered what to do with the black and white one. Below are four versions, in this order: original, edited, black and white, and “dramatic black and white”.
Which one do you prefer?

Sometimes a static photo doesn’t tell the whole story, so just for a change, here’s a couple of (very) short videos I shot yesterday afternoon :-)
