New Website

It's been exactly a year since we moved from Italy to the Netherlands. Somehow initially I couldn't get myself to revamp my Photography website and in the meantime I've pursued another dream of mine which is to be formally trained to become a teacher. Circumstances led that I started a teaching degree last February and so far I'm enjoying it immensely. It meant I haven't had much time to devote to the professional side of my photographic career, but as always I've been photographing a lot. It's in my blood to photograph. Now I'm having my Summer break and I feel so energised, I've been very motivated to re-do my website and I thought it was time for a new name. As Shin means new in Korean, those who know me know I need to change things around once in a while. I'm happy with the result.

Beach

I started running in July. Must be contagious as my DH started running a few years ago and now runs marathons. I don't want to do marathons but running a 10k in less than 55min is something I hope to do. Because of this I run three times a week. Lately the weather in the Netherlands has been quite dreary. So it took most of my energy almost every other day to muster up enough willpower to get the out of the house to do my scheduled runs. Yesterday the weather picked up and today it's a glorious day. Great weather to go to the beach. It's not that far from where I live. An easy 5k bikeride. There were loads of shells on the beach. I don't think I've ever seen this many.

TV




My DH's cousin works for Labyrint, a Dutch scientific television program. This was a particular broadcast about the fact that it can happen that stem cells are left by the baby in his/her mother. Some research says it can be good some says it can be bad. The program needed some mother/child(ren) pictures and I send her some. It was fun to see them being used. See if you can spot them :)

The program (in Dutch) can be seen here

No flash please

What camera do you use? Most people or actually photographers always want to know what camera the other photographer shoots with. If you are female and shoot with Nikon, it is popular referred to as being a Nikon girl. Now I can no longer say that. Even though I still shoot with Nikon, especially if it gets darker, especially indoor shoots, or if I can't afford to take leisurely time to take a shot. Any other time I prefer to take my other camera, which is a rangefinder. Initially I misunderstood and thought my Nikon flash wouldn't fit on this rangefinder. But a few days ago I found out it will fit. So lately I've been playing around with the flash quite a bit. My son was playing the violin and I thought it was the perfect moment to test it, but I got a friendly smile and the request please not to use the flash, as it blinded him too much. Alas the saga will have to continue with some other subject matter to practise ;)

Pie

Having moved house, even countries this Summer has taken much more time than I had expected. The move itself went flawlessly and putting everything in a new spot went surprisingly quickly. The kids started school in September and even getting into a rhythm seemed to go smoothly, but I've found myself not doing a lot of things workwise. Just letting things pass quietly. Nice and enjoyable We have been very lucky with the Dutch weather. It has been sunny and warm with very little rain. That has changed the last few days. It has rained a lot. But I quite like the rain. Even if you have to go outside, it's never as bad as you think it is, once you get out there and the reward of getting back into the house is twice as nice. It gives a warm and cosy feeling. So yes early Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. The colours in nature become so rich. Seeing chestnuts, picking them up, it makes me happy. The colour brown of a wet glistening chestnut is so beautiful. Somehow it has given me more energy to get started again workwise :)

One of the many things we enjoy about being back is being near family. This is my youngest who was so happy his aunt let him make this pie all by himself. Usually at home he gets to help, but not really do everything himself. His aunt is better in letting him do everything.




note to self: bake more, but bake less ;)
