The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Another week already and time for photo thoughts.
Cee’s photography has a classic quest today for black and white images.
I decided to take this as a portfolio task while out and about. We take an interest in experiences over gifts in day-to-day life and getting out and about in the local environment is a great way to do this.
There’s an annual museum card in The Netherlands that gives free or much reduced entry to 400 museums across the country. It’s a great chance to have a day out without generating rubbish or fumes.
Today we were starting new cards so we choose a museum we’d never been to. The weather was ghastly so ideal for museums.
It’s a sculpture museum that focuses on the human form. And it has open air exhibits incorporated in the unusual building.
It’s been on my list for a while. This is the giant sculpture indicating where the museum is at The Hague’s sea front resort Scheveningen. (I’ve had to crop it as it’s now very hard to photograph due to new sea defences and railings. )
On route to this museum and in the sculpture exhibition I tried to find images that would be good B&W subjects.
This poor juvenile seagull met us on a park bench. The museum is so close to the seafront. He’s a little poorly.
Some sculptures really lent themselves to the task.
But I think this is my favourite.
