Today, driving home from a customer in the city of Leeuwarden I took the road over the Afsluitdijk (or Closure Dike. It turned a sea into a lake; read more using the link). The road was very empty so I took out my camera a took some photographs while driving. This photo was taken near the monument by architect Willem Marinus Dudok. You can see the statue of Cornelis Lely, just onder the pedestrian bridge.

In a cafe yesterday I saw this nice scene. Although the face is not sharp, I have other photos where the kids face is sharp, I like this one best. She sees me taking the picture. More photos on the Picture-a-day page.

There was an opening of a photo exhibition in the forest. The people have left and a lonely tent is still there.

The photo of this post is an alternative version of the photo I used in the post “Reflections on a table“. Using the advise of Chuck I applied a gradient for the foreground of the photo, but the bright reflection still kept drawing too much attention to my taste. My solution was to crop the photo and also use a gradient. I think this is a better version of the photograph. As another alternative I post a different exposure of the same scene.

The last few days I have been taking a least one photo each day (except for one). I struggled but I did like the fact that I had to do it. Here’s one of them.

Let’s start a new challenge for myself: Take a photograph each day. Doesn’t have to be anything good. Just do it. No pressure. Really. I’m not Jim Brandenburg, don’t have to be. I put them on a separate page, for the moment: Picture-a-Day.

1 Happy New Year!
