Everything can be art

I recently visited the S.M.A.K. museum in Gent, Belgium. If you have plans to visit Gent, this museum is certainly worth checking out. As I was walking from exhibition room to exhibition room, I had my Yashica Medium Format in my hand. I noticed the lines of the white walls,  the floor and this chair. As I am familiar with conceptual art, I doubted for an instant whether this chair was part of a piece of art….. Anyway, I decided to open up the flip of the camera and take this shot. I like the chair by the way 🙂SMAK Gent (1 of 1)

Father and son

An analog, medium format TLR camera can be a great tool for street photography as Vivian Maier and many others have shown us. This picture is shot with the Yashica Mat 124 G  and Kodak Portra 400 converted to black and white. Walk in the park (1 of 1)

Standing tall

I took this picture a while back with  the Yashica medium format, at the Oostvaardersplassen. You see me standing at a beautiful, serene place in the Dutch polder where the nature is let alone in the sense that it is not being cultivated and nature management is kept minimal. On this picture you see the result of a fiery natural fire that destroyed the majority of trees. By letting nature off the hook, they hope it will harmonizes itself while standing tall. Oostvaardersplassen_Standing Tall (1 of 1)

I love you so much dear

Walking past the Kunsthal Museum when the dusk had already set in, I noticed this wonderful scene of a mother giving her son a hug and a kiss. Life’s most beautiful and precious things are often the smallest.I love you su much dear

Old meets new

Armed with the Yashica medium format, I saw these boys being emerged in their play with a smart phone. I noticed that the younger boy had to stretch his body to see what the other boy was doing. The other boy, I’d guess his older brother, did not seem to matter in the slightest way that his younger brother had to do go to such great pains and kept on being busy with his phone. This sight and the composition prompted me to take the camera out of my bag and snap this picture.Old meets new
