Not surprisingly a lot of things happened between the last post and today, considering the last post was more than a year ago. Got a job in Groningen, moved to Groningen, got my motorcycle license, bought a motorcycle, went to see Godspeed, few days in Brugge, went to Croatia and Slovenia, and about to go to Germany for a few days.

Istanbul

September 10, 2010

At the end of August the ICPR2010 conference was held in Istanbul, Turkey. I took a few days off to get there earlier and see more than the conference building ;). This was also a great time to use my new Sony HX5 camera with built in GPS. Here are a few photos (if I have the time, I’ll add a few more soon).

New camera

July 2, 2010

After my ‘old’ DSLR camera got stolen last year, my brother gave me a new compact camera for my birthday. The main features of it are an integrated GPS and an instant panorama function. Both features are pretty awesome, here are some shots:

Thanks bro.

Paris

March 3, 2010

Last weekend me and my brother went to Paris to do some sightseeing. We saw most of the main attractions (Eiffel tower, Notre Dame, the seine, Louvre, etc.). The hotel was quite nice (when we left we found out it had a swimming pool.. missed opportunity), the weather was ok (sometimes a bit cold and rainy) but all in all we had a great time.

The last two pictures were made by my brother :).

China Festival of Lights

December 12, 2009

Last weekend we went to the China Festival of Lights in Emmen; a light show with lanterns and light sculptures. Traditionally, these light festivals were organized to please the god of heaven to generate some sympathy for the following year. Indeed.

And I got attacked by a ferocious crocodile:

I survived

Amsterdam and China Impressions

September 30, 2008

I have some catching up to do. At the start of september I moved to The Hague, and this very day we finally got internet.

A few weeks ago, there was a kiting contest in Scheveningen, including kite-fighting. There were some nice kites, like

And I got this shot, which I liked for some reason:

Last saturday we got some free tickets from a friend to see China Impressions, a sort of history lesson visualized with the help of dance and acrobatics. I’d never been to something like this before, but I really liked it. We weren’t allowed to take pictures during the show, so I only did it once before they asked me to stop. But we were allowed backstage, which was really nice, and where we could make some pictures instead.

The first part of the show before I was told I couldn't make any pictures ;)
