Faces in Blijdorp

The last zoo I visited was Blijdorp. I was there in December and in January. Beautiful zoo! Here a number of faces that I photographed.

Macro flowers

For Gurushots I once again went into my photography past. I share a number of macros of flowers here. Partly new edits. The first photo is an adaptation of a photo that I did not share on the internet before. I do not know what it’s called. I have seen it in different tropical gardens. Among others in Burgers bush. There is also this picture taken in October 2016. If you know how this tree / shrub / plant is called, I like to hear it. They always hang high, at eye level. Unfortunately, I have never paid attention to what the rest of the plant looks like. Not wise 😛

Minimalism

Since a while I am active on GuruShots.com. There are always different challenges where you are in competition with other photographers. There are all kinds of topics. At the moment, among other things, I participate in the subject of Minimalism. I share here the photos I have sent.

About GuruShots.com, I say one thing: Think before you start. It is expensive. I am so stubborn now that I want to become a Guru. But I advise nobody to start with it. It does not really bring you much, maybeinspiration. Nothing more.

Proud to be chicken

Two weeks ago I was at the Orchideeënhoeve in Luttelgeest. As always a day full of colors, smells and lots of beautiful things. The icing on the cake was a poultry exhibition. What beautiful birds and other animals! Here a selection of roosters complete with their beautiful combs and proud look.

A wild hair day

Yep, I bought some flowers today. One of them is this gerbera. A gerbera with a wild hair day. Wonderful colors and amazing shapes. I made loads of photos of it.

Hope you’ll like them 🙂
