Dream Big  by Eric Strijbos

Currently unavailable for purchase

A rococo palace in Hesdin, France

A rather experimental image, involving a heavy external texture. Please have a close look first if you want to buy, I don’t want to cause any disappointments. I’m rather fond of it myself so I take the risk of posting it anyway.

Dedicated to my friend Diane, whose kind wish became the title of this image.

Canon 350D with standard zoomlens, not posted anywhere else.

I’m a travel writer and photographer from the Netherlands, having published more than a dozen of Dutch-language books about a range of European destinations, and a selfpublished photobook about Tuscany ( http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2324435 ). I use RedBubble to sell square travel photos and calendars.

    Actually the title and image it self remind me of being a child, hanging on a massive gate in front of an even more massive house and dreaming of living in it :)

    Great photo mate.

    ps. French really know how to build them ;)

  • Thanks, I like that memory! Yes, it’s been a dream for me too, although a bit smaller wouldn’t be bad too. :)

    It’s so strange that no one dedicates images to people here, glad you did.. nice to see some of DA’s style coming here :)

  • Yes, strange indeed. This was first posted elsewhere but it seemed natural to take the dedication along. :) But I won’t stop dedicating stuff here. Now, if only they’d have proper emotes here…
