Blossom
The Japanese Cherry is blossoming along the lane were I live. For many people a great photo opportunity. I took some quick photos while people and a even a horse were modeling for their photographers.

First official competition for for my daughter with her new horse Duchess this afternoon. Not a high score so enough to learn for her and her horse BFF. For me a great opportunity to practice my photography skills.

Atari 2600
Childhood memories, just received by mail. Bought a vintage Atari 2600 6 button better known as the 'Light Sixer', similar to the one I played with at my friends house during my teen years in the early 1980's in Amsterdam. My parents didn't had the money to buy one back then. Suddenly an opportunity knocked and couldn't resist buying one in excellent working condition with original joysticks for a friendly price.

Dark Tuscany
I've spent the past days around Pisa in Tuscany, Italy with my family and the first day we were not blessed with the weather. Our hotel was at the main gate of the Piazza dei Miracoli, formally known as Piazza del Duomo, and the location of the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Pisa Cathedral. Minutes before it went dark I ran out of the hotel and made this shot with almost no tourists. The threatening rain clouds made the shot complete. Hope You like it!

Single shot, handheld at 1/80 sec f/4.0 at 3200 ISO

Professional Imaging 2015
Visited the free admission Professional Imaging fair 2015 in Nijkerk, Holland today with workshops from photography education heavyweights like Scott Kelby, Glyn Dewis, Bert Monroy and many more. Like previous years, very crowded but the many exhibitors put in their best efforts to make it again a nice experience.

These parrots, placed in a rain forest mock- up, where surprisingly calm with so many photographers around them at the Sony Imaging booth.

RidNacs, invaluable freeware
One of my most used Windows utilities is RidNacs or Scandir backwards ;-).

Today one of my development servers was running out of diskspace and I could easily pinpoint the culprit, a folder with 30gigs of log files. If you don’t already know this very useful freeware utility, download it and see for yourself and drill down on folders with (obsolete) files that are clogging up your harddrive.

Een klant belde ooit eens op, toen ik nog op support zat... En klaagde dat het systeem zo traag werd... Die heb ik ook even laten kijken... En toen ik opmerkte dat ie een log bestand had en dat dat weleens de oorzaak kon zijn... had ie de dubbele bodem van die opmerking toch niet gelijk door... ;-)

Full Of Energy
Beautiful sunny day in Holland today and a great opportunity to spend the day with my 16 year old daughter and her horse Duchess. She has this 13 year old horse now for two weeks and this mare is full of energy. Next week will be a ride in the adjacent woods with the dedicated bridle path.

Dutch
Prachtige dag vandaag en een mooi  moment om met mijn dochter Fleur en haar merrie Duchess naar buiten te gaan. Het beestje zit vol met energie en als het weer zo blijft, gaan we volgende week proberen om in het naastgelegen bos op het ruiterpad met haar te wandelen. Ze is nog wat angstig door de drukte op de manege. Duchess was een kleine stal gewend.
