In August my oldest son became 27 years. He got for his birthday a voucher for abseiling from the Euromast in Rotterdam.
October 3 was the day ….
He climbed over the edge of the “crow’s nest” (over 100 meters high) and he let himself slide down along the ropes. Nothing for me, but I’m very proud of him!

BTW: the two boys ‘at his feet’ are his two brothers, watching him during the abseiling…. lol!

WELCOME!
Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!
