I've seen these boots for some time now, but they will be taken away at some point as they always renew the artwork on this piece of field. So yesterday was a sunny day and I thought it would be nice to go down there wearing our boots. This is the formal picture. There wasn't enough sky above, so I added some to make it into a square.
But of course I much more like the outtake because these just happen and become more fun to look at. My oldest son wanted to make sure the storm was coming from that direction. I know it is rare in the Netherlands, but there was no wind yesterday ;). And the little one was still upset about the debate he had about whether it was allowed to sit on a piece of art, hence his expression.

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.

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.

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

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 ;)
