A little break from the harbors series – last Saturday (2010-07-24) was the third World Wide Photo Walk, the first for me to take part. Exciting to know there were 1111 walks all over the world with a whopping 31960 registered walkers, all enjoying photography and each others’ company on the same day! I chose to take part in Almere because I’d never been there before: Jantheo was the ‘leader’ and had devised a route with the theme ‘color’. So much fun to see that even before we had reached our target area, people were shooting off in all directions, finding color and doing their own ‘thing’: the modern architecture could wait, there was water, and plants, and wall paintings, and – well – photographers! :)

Not all curves were just shape – in a shopping mall I found some fun and very colorful circles, too: artificial rainbows in the sky – more in line with the ‘color’ theme of the photo walk.

I have two passions: travel and photography – and these are often combined. Though even in my own city I often have a camera with me!

When I am not actually taking photographs or working on photographs, you may find me busy programming or otherwise working on my websites.

    This is great, lovely angle, light and colour! :))

  • Kink in my neck, and I had to maneuver quite a bit before I had the lamp just in the middle of the cupola – but it was worth it. :) I love how you can see its own colorful reflection along the edges.

    Thank you so much, Kylie! Glad you like it!

    Great photo, Marjo.. Perfect shaping; it becomes an op-art illusion

  • That’s exactly the sort of thing I was after; the lamp in front, positioned exactly, contributes to it. (I had to carefully ignore shoppers and photographers around me to get into exactly the right position. :)) Look at it the right way, and it starts flipping between concave and convex…. Do you see it?

    Thanks for your insightful comment, Ron!

  • Thanks for the fave, too! (I’m only seeing that now, last night RB was having trouble and it never showed up in my activity feed.)

    Prachtige foto, Marjolein! Simply but perfect! Geweldige compo!
    Groeten en fijne dag!

  • Dankjewel, Hans! Het was nog niet zo gemakkelijk om precies op het goede punt te staan én geen last te hebben van winkelend publiek en photowalkers. :) Wel een super middag gehad; zou niet in Almere willen wonen, maar fotografisch is het inspirerend.

    Thank you for the replies, M— & yes, that flipping concave-convex illusion is exactly what I was referring to.. amazingly successful photo..

  • Good – glad it works as intended; I saw the potential but it’s much harder to judge through the view finder than on the screen – but then it’s easy to see for yourself what you intended but not necessarily for others… Thanks for the feedback, Ron!
