Pretty much an ordinary shot. Bad framing, bad subject, bad lightning, bad colors, but i'm still proud of how i managed not to shake (too much) for 15 seconds for the exposure. Photo taken at around 20:00... which means, at this time of the year, that it was as dark as teh night will get.

Shame tho... should've thought a bit more about the framing.

Jan taking a nap in between dish-washing sessions. Jet lag.

This year it didn't snow. It wasn't that much fun this time.

This looks like a late Halloween shot. Completes my day's atmosphere tho... woke up with a Marilyn Manson's song in me brain (Dried Up, Tied And Dead To The World), saw a giant owl staring at me from a rooftop (small/ugly pic at the end of the post), saw the wind carry clouds across the sky in "timelapse" speed, covering the moon, et cetera.

To balance things a bit i talked to a nun (yeah, there is a nun in my class... lol), watched 4 episodes of The Mentalist in a row to get a calmer/hollywood-ish evening, and played the new Super Mario Bross for Wii.

Contrasty, i have to say. And yes, i do need to vacuum the floor again... i can see the dust in the photo too.

How to make a painful photo in 4 seconds.


And then you think: "309 to go...".

24 Nov 2009


My photos are way too dark lately.


Whatever... caption on Facebook (Picasa/Blogger were being weird a few minutes ago).

Cheap circuits. Cheap photograph too. Latelly everything has been cheap, but not in a good way. Except for solutions... no, those never come cheap.

Went out to enjoy the sun. Spent 5 hours under moonlight. Gotta love it.

Spent a small part of the day trying to fix the dynamo for my bike, which has passed away yesterday night, in mourn for Ireland's chance for the next World Cup. Well, didn't work. I guess when FIFA agrees to a rematch, the dynamo will just start working again. Go Eires!

On the other hand, took me 2 minutes to fix a dynamo flashlight that was being shortened by a LED. Then i wasted some 10 minutes thinking of how to convert this flashlight into the lights for my bike. Didn't succeed. Don't have the room to such a thing, although it looked extremely easy, for the right tools. Aaaaanywho, got a flashlight in one of those shops that sells all kind of cheap junk, but i forgot to buy the batteries.

In the end, i have to buy batteries tomorrow if i'm to ride my bike to Alice in Chain's concert. Crap.


Today, for the first time in a couple of years (around 4 i think), i really supported a football team. Ireland deserved the win, the french goal was bollocks.

But, as far as favourites go, France won. And although i got a free guinness and although i had a good time with an american and 2 frenchs (Marie, Remi and Geoff), i was disappointed. Now, why, i have no clue. I don't even like football. I guess i may be starting to get teh unexplainable feeling that sports fans, all around the world, have.

Imagine an unnecessarily bright light. Now imagine it in an unnecessarily fancy PS-like controlle. Now, imagine the headache one can get when that thing starts blinking if it is accidentaly activated while playing PES...

2 photographs taken with different exposure times, overlapped with "Color Burn" effect. Isn't expectacular, but i don't care. If you want something better, subscribe to work for the belgian government and work competently, deal? This way i can work and invest in some equipment or a short trip for some more interesting photos.

Friday 13th, even tho it's already saturday 14th. Too bad there was no full moon.

When i wake up i should visit the rommelmarkt in Antwerpen to hunt down a Smena or BeLOMO... who knows? Maybe Saturday 14th is my lucky day. It's never too late to make superstitions up. :)

Great night, great people. It just got me thinking though... what if? What if they weren't here, what if I wasn't here, what if we were all somewhere else? Together, alone, half way? It doesn't matter. Just... what if?

And i guess the answer is "whatever, this is how it is". And i'm glad.

Morning classes... starts in 8:43 hours.

My internet reached the transfer limit, theeeeerefore, it's taking already 6 minutes to upload this photo to picasa... can't wait (literally) to see how it's gonna be in FB.

Crossed the street today to check the boekenbeurs.... didn't enjoy it much, since i didn't get any freebies. Damn it.

More early days coming.

By the way, i will remake this picture very soon, so no "i've seen this before", please.


Feels like winter, looks like fall.

7 Nov 2009


On my way to Rotterdam. Cameras locked and loaded.

Caught myself thinking about some about people's opinions today. Not necessarily about me or any specific topics, just random opinions. Honestly, none of them seemed good enough, or accurate, for that matter.
Keep your noses down, people. Keeping them that high up just makes them easier to be punched.

6 Nov 2009


Strange day, "almost" hazy, sunny, overcast, rainy and, at around 17:00, dark. Winter is coming, finally. Can't wait for the snow.

5 Nov 2009


Today, somehow, i feel karma-resilient.


Whatever happened to today, i didn't have a dime to go through it. Good thing bike rides and aged beer in the back of my cupboard are for free.

Muse @ Sportpaleis - Antwerpen, 2009.

Nice concert, better than i expected (although anything would be better than the expectations i had). But, i'm sorry musers, Alice in Chains' concert is approaching, and there is my mind.

I'd love to quit smoking, but my ashtray is always smiling at me.


Lame, late, halloween, etc.

Hah! Enjoy the weekend.
