I collect photo books of art photographers, landscape photographers, photo yournalists and respect the photographers, the geographic locatiions they take images of and the architecture, cultural landscapes or wildlife environment they take images of.
I love sequences or series about themes like city life, towns life and rural life. Photographers like Manfred Wiillmann (His book, Das Land), Robert Frank and Stephen Shore, Kaima.
Since I like taking images from landscapes, city architecture and street scenes I know what it takes to make such an image. It looks easy, but you have to make the right composition, find the right light, use your right camera settings (the right Diaphragm [Optica], the right shuttertime and the right spots have to be sharp) and you have to decide if you work with a tripod or not.
A good photographer drives a lot, looks a lot and sees dozens of alternatives before he takes a right shot.
Before this particular photo he will have made other photo’s and conpositions. Why is this particular photo like it is. It has a story to tell. Where is it, who is the photographer, what date is it. And what kind of house is that. You can ask many questions.
I like rhe image. Natiure and architecture and history and the present merge.

P.S.-All photo's I found via Google search, there are no images of myself between these images.My compatriots took nice images of the beautiful images of the Sonsbeek park in Arnhem I must say. I love this park, this is one of the places I enjoy nature, trees and moments of quiet and peace to escape the city for a moment.
Pieter, amazing photos of Arnhem. In some of the pictures the contrast was probably a bit increased, but I do sometimes the same with my pictures. I love the last one with the deers. It had to be early in the morning, when everything was still humid.
