I am on a trip

You can guess where.

Today, no lesson, just snaps:

Haastrecht and the Rule of Thirds:

Gouda, by the St Jan cathedral:

Behind it, the sombre Jewish Cemetery:

On Kleiweg, a traditional street organ:

And my son Daniel at Gouda’s Town Hall, in the rain:

Yes, wide angle lenses rock; yes, you can use them in the rain; yes, you can tilt; yes, you look for storytelling details, and yes, exposure is critical – shoot RAW. And yes, use the Rule of Thirds.

And yes, most of these images would have been much easier if I had had my speedlight on the camera.

And finally, yes, even no-flash grab shots can be worth taking. Document your life!
