As every five years, Sail 2010 drew a lot of visitors to the large number of tall ships. These three had front row seats.

I’ve been wondering what people can do on these two exercise “structures”, for lack of a better word. And even more why would you want to do anything like that in the middle of a forest?!

On the Zuidas, in the south of Amsterdam, an open air exhibition called Paris Street View opened recently. Michael Wolf took pictures of his monitor on which he used Google Maps street view functionality to look at the streets of Paris. Here are two snaps I took of this exhibition.

Walking around in the business district near my neighborhood yesterday afternoon I saw this scene: strict architectural lines, a knotty tree crown and the moon. I was walking around the area because of a photo exhibition by Michael Wolf called Paris Street View. More about that in another post.

Yesterday I received the intriguing photo book of Bernard Fuchs called “Roads and Paths“. When I was in my early teens I would often fantasize about where a path or road would lead to. Some of these ancient roads would lead to other continents of over high mountains, up to the top, where they would end. This books show roads and paths, small, hidden or unclear and indecisive.

Today I walked to a nearby park when I saw a car track which was filled with pieces of ice. This brought my mind back to the book, which I bought after only having a look at the front cover and reading the title. After not making photos for some weeks I finally took a couple, one of them you can see below.

Snow in the Netherlands. Just a little, many people would say, but the whole infrastructure is out of order. For many kids it is great fun since their holidays started this weekend.

This evening I walked around on the ArtZuid sculpture route near my home in Amsterdam. The sculpture Translucide of Antoine Poncet reflected the light and the color of the sky beautifully. I’ve also added some more photos to the ArtZuid gallery.
